mc² Micro Core

IP Routing and DSP Node for Automated Production

The mc² Micro Core is a versatile standalone audio processing core, providing 192 DSP channels and a routing
matrix of 512x512 channels. It is connected to the outside world via four RAVENNA / AES67 ports – if MADI connectivity
is needed, this can be readily accomplished with A__madi6, Lawo´s bidirectional MADI-to-RAVENNA interface. The
mc² Micro Core is designed to be controlled by a variety of external studio control systems, as well as Lawo’s intuitive,
touchscreen optimized mxGUI software. The device is a perfect option for small-sized automated applications where
external studio control systems are triggering the operation, e.g. in automated newsroom productions. Other applications
include small-sized routing applications with DSP processing, e.g. for metering, and install sound applications, where
renowned Lawo processing features like Automix allow automated mixing e.g. of panel discussions in meeting
rooms. Supported protocols and control systems include VSM, Evertz, Quartz, BFE, Pharos, Ross RAP, GV Ignite and
Vizrt Mosart, among others. The processing core provides extensive diagnostic tools for remote maintenance, including
log files and http access, just like any mc2 console. The compact 19“/3RU device uses inaudible, low-spinning fans for cooling.
