In Frankfurt on Booth B50 in Hall 8.0, Lawo demonstrated the mirroring of two mc²56 consoles – a requirement useful in theater applications that allows an mc² console to be located in the auditorium to prepare and fine-tune the mix during rehearsals.
This position allows you to set the mix where the audience is sitting, and enables the mix engineer to be in close contact with the director and actors. The auditorium console settings are mirrored to a console in the control room where the show mix is normally handled without disturbing the audience. Once the rehearsals are completed and the mix set, the auditorium console can be removed, freeing the seats in the auditorium to be taken by paying customers. The show mix is then handled within the audio booth but with the added confidence that the resulting mix presented to the audience is of the highest quality and attuned to the venue’s acoustical characteristics.
Lawo’s mc²56 console also features include a built-in automix capability and integrates the RAVENNA audio-over-IP technology which is fully compliant with the AES67 IP network standard.
