About Lawo — Landmarks.




Throughout its history, Lawo has always kept learning and looking ahead, making it a
pioneer partner in the development of digital radio and TV. Constantly communicating
with our clients, we continue to optimise the ergonomics, functionality and design of

At the beginning of the 1980s, the young company was working
on digital electronics. Supported by a group of sound engineers
from the local broadcaster, a programmable audio mixing
console (PTR), with analogue signal processing and digital con-
trol, was designed. The console met the strict technical require-
ments of the German Institute for Broadcast Technology and,
because of its integral software control, it was possible to adapt
the console to a customer’s individual specifications.

Digital mixing consoles.
Based on its experience with a hybrid audio mixing console,
Lawo developed the fully digital and modular mc series in
the early 1990s. This series included the mc 50 for ambitious
on-air and small studio productions, and the mc 80 / 82 for
broadcasting applications including music and drama recor-
ding, post production and outside broadcasts.

mc² technology.
In 1998, Lawo achieved a technological breakthrough via
systematic development. The new mc² series made it possible
to interlink and route, using linear audio signals, practically
all audio components in a system.

It runs in the family.
In 1999, Philipp Lawo, Peter Lawo’s son, became CEO of the
Lawo AG. Peter Lawo joined the supervisory board.

mc² 90 — No compromises.




A new reference for high-end mixing consoles: the mc² 90. Size and power, flexibility
and dependability, an intuitive control surface and ergonomic design — the mc² 90 sets
new standards in all these areas. And it offers you today the technology you might be
expecting tomorrow from a top class mixing console. With the mc² 90 we have developed
an innovative audio tool that meets the highest demands and individual requirements in
any type of production — and all this with 24-hour, 365 days-a-year reliability.

                                                           However, for this audio-technical challenge, there was an optimal

Lawo mc²66 for Singapore‘s first HDTV Outside Broadcast Van:
MediaCorp trusts in Lawo technology.




                                                     MediaCorp has already some experience with Lawo technology:
                                                     “Lawo’s reputation for providing excellent pre- and post-sales
                                                     support, and for proven technology, were important factors
                                                     in the awarding of this contract,” says Boon Siong Tan confir-
                                                     ming the reasons why MediaCorp trusts in Lawo.




                                                   In South-East Asia viewers can now enjoy HDTV and surround
                                                   sound due to the new OB van from MediaCorp, Singapore’s
                                                   leading media company. The OB excels with innovative technol-
                                                   ogy — and on board the rolling audio control room: a mc²66
                                                   console from Lawo.

                                                   As yet, there are no other HD studios with full surround moni-
                                                   toring control facilities, so the new vehicle will play a vital role
                                                   in the corporation’s HDTV surround production capability. As well
                                                   as handling outside broadcast projects, the OB van can be linked
                                                   to any of the MediaCorp studios for in-house surround sound
                                                   productions, a highly cost-efficient solution. This is made possible
                                                   by the audio and video equipment inside the vehicle, notable
                                                   the Lawo mc²66 and the 4 x DALLIS I/O systems.

                                                   Inside the HDTV OB van’s audio section is a 48-fader mc²66
                                                   with a routing capacity of 8000 x 8000 crosspoints from the
                                                   HD Core and Nova73 HD router. Full redundancy is included in
                                                   the router and fibre connections to the four DALLIS frames, and,
                                                   of the 240 full DSP channels, 48 are planned for redundancy.

                                                   Delivery of the new HD OBV was scheduled for March 2010,
                                                   but producers of MediaCorp’s popular talent contest “Singapore
                                                   Idol” were keen to use surround sound for the all-important
                                                   finale in late December 2009. So MediaCorp hired a Lawo
                                                   mc²66 digital audio console for the show, ideal training for
                                                   MediaCorp engineers prior to the delivery of the OB van.

                                                   “This was MediaCorp’s first HD production with full surround
                                                   sound,” explains technical sales specialist Boon Siong Tan,
                                                   Lawo’s representative in Singapore, “and therefore the first
                                                   chance to utilize the mc²66 to its full potential. They were de-
                                                   lighted with the results, particularly the performance of the
                                                   console which they found to have many unique features ideally
                                                   suited to this kind of production, and an impressively powerful
                                                   tool compared to other mixers.”




                                                                                                                                                                          MediaCorp HDTV OB van with mc²66,
                                                                                                                                                                          Singapore.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              20 21
mc² 56 — Performance, pure and simple.




The highest quality can now be so compact. The largest is not always the best, and less can
often mean more. This is why there is a new mixing console from Lawo that offers superb
performance in daily operation, with well thought-out design and intuitive user guidance;
a console that features reduced control density and, in particular, a compact frame con-
struction. Yet, with plenty of concentration on the “down to basics”, the new mc² 56 console
conforms fully to the proven mc² series in terms of quality and performance. The mc² 56 is
based on current Lawo HD core technology, and guarantees maximum reliability, function-
ality and DSP power. You can count on the fact that all products with a name featuring the
well-known “mc²” naturally incorporate that legendary mc² quality that only Lawo can offer.
                                                                                      22 23
mc² 56 — Performance, pure and simple.




Where performance, rather than size, is important.
The mc² 56 is consistently designed for the very best perform-
ance. For this reason, you have the same processing power in
this console that already distinguishes the mc² 66 and mc² 90.
What makes the mc² 56 different to its siblings is its compact
construction. In a width of only 1.2 metres, we provide 32 faders
(when installed in the width of an OB van, 64 faders are
possible). The secret of these space-saving dimensions is that
each fader bay contains 16 faders, and there are virtually no
gaps between bays. The mc² 56 will certainly impress you with
its superior suitability, even at the installation stage.

Where functionality, rather than luxury, is required.
A mixing console must particularly impress during daily
operation. This is why, with the mc² 56, you benefit from many
proven features of the mc² range — starting with the design
principle of “form follows function”, through dynamic auto-
mation, and on to speedy access to the most important control
parameters (“assign at destination”). An intrinsic feature of
the mc² 56, however, is the specially designed control layout.
Here, the most important functions are within easy reach, while
lesser-used features are accessed exclusively via the touch
screen. The result is an ease of operation that really can be
described as user-friendly, and a suitability in use that is best
summed up as: Performance, pure and simple!

Don’t think solo, look at the networked solution.
Complete compatibility and uncomplicated data transfer – this
is what characterises mc² consoles. The networkability of Lawo
mixing consoles does not just provide for the flexible expansion
of existing mc² installations, but in day-to-day operation, the
100 % compatibility of user data, and its inherent benefits, will
also be appreciated. A typical example: a production starts in
stereo, using an mc² 66 in the OB van, and is subsequently
continued in a portable control room before the automated
mix, supported with snapshots, can be completed in an mc² 90
studio in 5.1 — and all this completely independent of the
physical number of faders, the size of routing matrix, and the
DSP capacity. Thanks to the transferability of all user data,
extended configuration times can be avoided, thus leading to
even further efficiency in day-to-day production.

As powerful as ever, as attractive as never before: With the sapphire, a mixing console
has become available that combines the best of both worlds. Our new console for radio
broadcast is not limited to proven cutting-edge technology but also offers an eye-catching
new design. The advantage: while technicians will be convinced by the possibility of various
upgrades, maximum flexibility and sophisticated functionality, radio broadcasters will be
continually impressed by the modern control surface, which makes working with the new
sapphire fun. In addition, the sapphire offers everything expected from a powerful mixing
console: top quality, intuitive user guidance and clever solutions, all of which guarantee
even greater working efficiency.



                                                                                                                                           34 35

The best solution for a broadcast complex:
Interconnection of several systems via network.



The sapphire is not only a convincing soloist — it also performs as a perfect team player. For example, the
sapphire can fit perfectly into broadcast networks. Besides the option of low-cost audio connection via MADI
interfaces, broadcasting setups can also be realized at a control level — featuring, of course, resource sharing,
standby production cubicles and multi- studio operation. At the same time, freely configurable control signals
can be distributed via Ethernet-TCP/IP to other independent systems, thus enabling multiple and cross-system
functions, such as program switches, talkback, conferencing, monitoring selections and red light routing.
Another benefit: the high cost-efficiency of integrated sapphire solutions.

We will continue to listen to our customers, and carry on developing Hybrid technology. products and solutions accordingly. At the beginning of the 1980s, the young company was working on digital electronics. Supported by a group of sound engineers from the local broadcaster, a programmable audio mixing console (PTR), with analogue signal processing and digital con- trol, was designed. The console met the strict technical require- ments of the German Institute for Broadcast Technology and, because of its integral software control, it was possible to adapt the console to a customer’s individual specifications. Digital mixing consoles. Based on its experience with a hybrid audio mixing console, Lawo developed the fully digital and modular mc series in the early 1990s. This series included the mc 50 for ambitious on-air and small studio productions, and the mc 80 / 82 for broadcasting applications including music and drama recor- ding, post production and outside broadcasts. mc² technology. In 1998, Lawo achieved a technological breakthrough via systematic development. The new mc² series made it possible to interlink and route, using linear audio signals, practically all audio components in a system. It runs in the family. In 1999, Philipp Lawo, Peter Lawo’s son, became CEO of the Lawo AG. Peter Lawo joined the supervisory board. 04 05

  • 8. mc²90 – No compromises. Today’s news in tomorrow’s studio: New ZDF news studio with two Lawo mc²90. A virtual Green Box with nothing more than a presenter’s isle with an elegantly curved wooden desk. This is what Germany’s most modern TV studio looks like — the studio where, since July 2009, the news programmes of German public broadcaster Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF) are produced. The special thing about this futuristic studio: all image data is supplied through computers resulting in considerable latencies of up to 160 ms. This would result in audio and video being out-of-sync. However, for this audio-technical challenge, there was an optimal solution: two mc²90 consoles from Lawo. The mc²90 systems — capable of providing up to 1800 ms delay — can be set to fix delays. Thanks to these features, video “The reliable delay performance of the Lawo consoles was latencies of 80 ms for studio monitoring, and 160 ms at the one of the reasons which tipped the balance in favour of show production, don’t pose a problem for the mc² consoles — Lawo” concludes Wolfgang Wacker, Planning Engineer at and, using in-ear monitoring, presenters always hear the right ZDF for the new studio. sound at the right time. In addition to the delays, the absolute redundancy and Video- follow-Audio functions of both mc² 90 represent crucial factors for ZDF. Since the cameras, for the first time, are controlled through the audio consoles via GPI, it is now possible to produce the night-time news without monitoring personnel.

  • 12. Pictures by Courtesy of Clifford Isaac Nathan mc² 66 — Inspired by your needs. Lawo mc²66 for Singapore‘s first HDTV Outside Broadcast Van: MediaCorp trusts in Lawo technology. MediaCorp has already some experience with Lawo technology: “Lawo’s reputation for providing excellent pre- and post-sales support, and for proven technology, were important factors in the awarding of this contract,” says Boon Siong Tan confir- ming the reasons why MediaCorp trusts in Lawo. In South-East Asia viewers can now enjoy HDTV and surround sound due to the new OB van from MediaCorp, Singapore’s leading media company. The OB excels with innovative technol- ogy — and on board the rolling audio control room: a mc²66 console from Lawo. As yet, there are no other HD studios with full surround moni- toring control facilities, so the new vehicle will play a vital role in the corporation’s HDTV surround production capability. As well as handling outside broadcast projects, the OB van can be linked to any of the MediaCorp studios for in-house surround sound productions, a highly cost-efficient solution. This is made possible by the audio and video equipment inside the vehicle, notable the Lawo mc²66 and the 4 x DALLIS I/O systems. Inside the HDTV OB van’s audio section is a 48-fader mc²66 with a routing capacity of 8000 x 8000 crosspoints from the HD Core and Nova73 HD router. Full redundancy is included in the router and fibre connections to the four DALLIS frames, and, of the 240 full DSP channels, 48 are planned for redundancy. Delivery of the new HD OBV was scheduled for March 2010, but producers of MediaCorp’s popular talent contest “Singapore Idol” were keen to use surround sound for the all-important finale in late December 2009. So MediaCorp hired a Lawo mc²66 digital audio console for the show, ideal training for MediaCorp engineers prior to the delivery of the OB van. “This was MediaCorp’s first HD production with full surround sound,” explains technical sales specialist Boon Siong Tan, Lawo’s representative in Singapore, “and therefore the first chance to utilize the mc²66 to its full potential. They were de- lighted with the results, particularly the performance of the console which they found to have many unique features ideally suited to this kind of production, and an impressively powerful tool compared to other mixers.” MediaCorp HDTV OB van with mc²66, Singapore. 20 21
  • 13. mc² 56 — Performance, pure and simple. The highest quality can now be so compact. The largest is not always the best, and less can often mean more. This is why there is a new mixing console from Lawo that offers superb performance in daily operation, with well thought-out design and intuitive user guidance; a console that features reduced control density and, in particular, a compact frame con- struction. Yet, with plenty of concentration on the “down to basics”, the new mc² 56 console conforms fully to the proven mc² series in terms of quality and performance. The mc² 56 is based on current Lawo HD core technology, and guarantees maximum reliability, function- ality and DSP power. You can count on the fact that all products with a name featuring the well-known “mc²” naturally incorporate that legendary mc² quality that only Lawo can offer. 22 23
  • 14. mc² 56 — Performance, pure and simple. Where performance, rather than size, is important. The mc² 56 is consistently designed for the very best perform- ance. For this reason, you have the same processing power in this console that already distinguishes the mc² 66 and mc² 90. What makes the mc² 56 different to its siblings is its compact construction. In a width of only 1.2 metres, we provide 32 faders (when installed in the width of an OB van, 64 faders are possible). The secret of these space-saving dimensions is that each fader bay contains 16 faders, and there are virtually no gaps between bays. The mc² 56 will certainly impress you with its superior suitability, even at the installation stage. Where functionality, rather than luxury, is required. A mixing console must particularly impress during daily operation. This is why, with the mc² 56, you benefit from many proven features of the mc² range — starting with the design principle of “form follows function”, through dynamic auto- mation, and on to speedy access to the most important control parameters (“assign at destination”). An intrinsic feature of the mc² 56, however, is the specially designed control layout. Here, the most important functions are within easy reach, while lesser-used features are accessed exclusively via the touch screen. The result is an ease of operation that really can be described as user-friendly, and a suitability in use that is best summed up as: Performance, pure and simple! Don’t think solo, look at the networked solution. Complete compatibility and uncomplicated data transfer – this is what characterises mc² consoles. The networkability of Lawo mixing consoles does not just provide for the flexible expansion of existing mc² installations, but in day-to-day operation, the 100 % compatibility of user data, and its inherent benefits, will also be appreciated. A typical example: a production starts in stereo, using an mc² 66 in the OB van, and is subsequently continued in a portable control room before the automated mix, supported with snapshots, can be completed in an mc² 90 studio in 5.1 — and all this completely independent of the physical number of faders, the size of routing matrix, and the DSP capacity. Thanks to the transferability of all user data, extended configuration times can be avoided, thus leading to even further efficiency in day-to-day production. 24 25

  • 16. mc256 – Performance, pure and simple. For the football highlight of 2010: SABC chooses Lawo for four new OB vans. New streets, new stadiums — and new OB vans: like the rest of the country, the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has been preparing itself for the sports highlight of 2010. That is why one year ago SABC ordered four OB vans, all equipped with mc²56 from Lawo. The four identical mc²56 consoles provide a fully program- mable control surface fitted with 64 faders. There is full processing for every channel and the HD Core offers 128 AES inputs and 128 AES outputs. A Lawo DALLIS frame provides all the other AES and analogue I/Os; the routing capacity of the HD Core is 8192 crosspoints. Besides an impressive technical specification, the mc² consoles excel in their usability. International football requires different mix outputs which can only be achieved by two sound engineers operating at the mixer together — a challenge which is easily mastered by the mc²56. Furthermore, there is a demand for the audio perspective to match the selected video, be it from one side of the pitch, overhead pictures from a helicopter or from a “blimp”. Here, the Audio-follow-Video feature comes to the fore, allowing different sub-mixes to be assigned to up to 128 events. The mc²56, with its diverse panning characteristics and multiple output formats, turns what might otherwise be a daunting task into a relatively simple process. With built-in redundancy for PSUs, DSP boards and router board, the mc²56 is as fail-safe Mervin Buthelezi, the Technical Manager of the OB Units for as a live OB mixing console can possibly be. With regards to audio SABC, explains: “After evaluation, research and testing by technology, a successful tournament is sure to be plain sailing. our own sound engineers, we all felt that the Lawo mc²56 had the power, flexibility, reliability and redundancy we were looking for.” SABC OB van with mc²56, South Africa. 28 29
