Lawo honored with “Emmy Engineering Plaque”
“I wish to thank all our partners and customers. They have always supported us and pushed us to develop products that better suit their needs and support their rapidly evolving workflow requirements. To me this cooperation is the key to Lawo’s success”, said Philipp Lawo, CEO of Lawo.
The Emmys jury acknowledged that as one of the original manufacturers of audio networking technologies, Lawo pioneered the use of telecommunication protocols such as ATM/SDH (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and now RAVENNA (real-time Audio-over-IP technology), making it possible to distribute broadband audio in real time over WAN networks thousands of miles apart, with transfers at the speed of light and minimum latency at each end.
In bestowing the Emmy Engineering Plaque, the jury recognized that Lawo's breakthrough helped lead the way for audio networking and the creation of Lawo’s Nova series routing matrices. With their modular construction, dual star network topology and scalable routing capacity of up to 8,192 x 8,192 cross points in a single frame, the Nova series audio routers are used successfully by broadcast engineers world-wide, providing them with maximum reliability, unparalleled flexibility and significantly enhanced workflows.
Lawo designs and manufactures pioneering audio and video technology for TV and radio broadcast production, post-production, as well as live performance and theatrical applications. Products include digital audio mixing consoles, routers, video processing tools, as well as IP-based video and audio transport solutions. Lawo products are developed and manufactured according to highest quality standards at the company’s headquarters in the Rhine valley town of Rastatt, Germany.
