Compact Engine

AES67 Audio Node with Onboard DSP

Lawo’s new Compact Engine brings RAVENNA/AES67 capability to a variety of traditional (non networked) audio equipment.  This 1RU device delivers an impressive array of analog and baseband-digital inputs and outputs to interface to virtually anything.  It's the perfect product when you’re ready to begin the transition to IP, but not quite ready to toss out everything and begin anew.  In addition to being a powerful AoIP audio interface, the Compact Audio Engine has a powerful DSP resource onboard.  Use the DSP for EQ and dynamics, mixing and routing, precision delay and other functions.  Using VisTool and a networked computer, you can build custom control panels or touch-based mixing consoles to control your Compact Audio Engine.  The applications are limited only by your imagination.
