Lawo will debut the new Ruby radio console at IBC

“We’ve already received pre-orders for 91 surfaces and mixing engines from clients around the world”

Ruby, the new radio console, will be the star of the Radio display in the Lawo stand at IBC.

 

“Engineers kept telling us how much they liked ruby,” says Stephan Türkay, Lawo’s Senior Product Manager, Radio OnAir. “And they meant it, because we’ve already received pre-orders for 91 surfaces and mixing engines from clients around the world.”

 

“In today’s radio studios, talent is glued to their computer screens,” continues Türkay. “More recently, touchscreen smartphones and tablets have become an essential part of daily life. We at Lawo saw touchscreens as another opportunity to revolutionize radio.”

 

Ruby is designed to match modern radio operations, enabling talent to mix and route audio using the same touchscreen environment used by other studio tools. Alongside familiar physical faders and switches, a customizable display with context-sensitive multi-touch UI allows stations to add controls for other studio applications, such as playout systems, phone queues and codecs.

“With ruby, operators can work the way they like: with touchscreen displays or physical controls. The choice is completely up to them,” explains Türkay. “We provide a wide range of preconfigured screens, or clients can craft their own custom screens with our sophisticated GUI builder.”

 

Ruby is suitable for stations which require uninterrupted uptime or want to migrate to AoIP

Ruby is an AES67 radio console with RAVENNA AoIP built-in. Dual-network redundancy, with instantaneous recovery from any network fault, makes it a suitable console for stations which require uninterrupted uptime. AES67 and high-density MADI interfaces are both standard, and eight expansion slots permit addition of mic, line, AES3 and studio I/O, making also ruby a good console for stations who want to migrate to AoIP without sacrificing legacy infrastructure.

 

Ruby will begin shipping in October, 2017. It is available in configurations from 4 to 60 faders, with a variety of desktop or flush-mount frame styles.
