Lawo and AVT Put Callers On-Air via Ember+ and AES67

05.September 2016 - 16:28

Broadcasters can now connect the popular line of AVT broadcast hybrids and talkshow systems to their Lawo radio consoles using an all-AoIP audio and control path, thanks to AVT’s addition of AES67 and Ember+ to their VoIP, ISDN and POTS phone products.

“Our mutual clients have been asking for an AoIP connection to Lawo consoles,” says AVT Sales Director Wolfgang Peters. “Now they have it! The presence of AES67 and Ember+ within AVT phone systems makes it easier than ever for broadcasters to put truly outstanding caller audio on the air.”

Ember+ is an open-source control developed by Lawo and made available to manufacturers free of charge. Combining Ember+ with the AES67 networking standard creates a complete AoIP audio + control solution for professional broadcast hardware and software devices.
“An all-IP connection means even tighter integration between AVT phone systems and Lawo radio consoles,” says Lawo’s Stephen Türkay, Senior Product Manager, Radio OnAir. “Even though Lawo uses RAVENNA AoIP, and AVT is equipped with Dante networking, AES67 is the common language both can speak. System setup is easier, thanks to the direct AoIP connection between AVT and Lawo equipment. And AVT’s Ember+ implementation means operators will see the benefits of even better control during phone-heavy radio shows.”

The interoperation between AVT and Lawo will be highlighted during IBC 2016 in Amsterdam, where AVT will demonstrate the AES67 / Ember+ connection using the Lawo crystal mixing console displayed in their stand, #8.E76.

Visitors to IBC 2016 can see the full line of Lawo radio solutions in Stand 8.B50, including the sapphire, crystal and crystal clear mixing consoles, VisTool UI-building software, and the new line of RƎLAY Virtual Radio Mixer products.
