Lawo V__pro8 with Release 1.0 in Serial Production

Lift-off for the compact and efficient video tool V__pro8

After enthusiastic feedback to its presentation at NAB and IBC, Lawo’s first video device V__pro8 has been brought to release 1.0 level, leaving its prototype phase behind: since end of November 2012, the V__pro8 with the initial release version is produced as a regular serial product.

Lawo has developed the V__pro8 for displaying video power on a small footprint, the perfect tool to connect signals of different video formats as well as between audio and video.

Lawo V__pro8: Output AudioVU - Output Main - Output Vector - Output YRGB Correction


High quality cross format conversion, colour correction as well as embedding and de-embedding makes the V__pro 8 a compact and powerful video processor. Modern high density audio connections such as RAVENNA and MADI provide video-to-audio bridges within the studio infrastructure. The V__pro8 works as a flexible matrix system: thanks to a 8 x 8 video matrix and a 384 x 384 audio matrix it is possible to switch any signal to any other signal.

A modern GUI based on HTML5 is the interface for easy handling in day-to-day work. The V__pro8 combines a number of different tasks in one tool, thus guaranteeing maximum efficiency and greatest operating safety at significant reduced cost.
