RAVENNA / AES67 Virtual Sound Card
R3LAY VSC is Lawo’s new virtual soundcard solution. It provides 64 channels bi-directional RAVENNA and true AES67 streaming in the Microsoft Windows environment and supplies multiple WDM drivers and an ASIO driver that can be loaded by more than one application at the same time. It also features advanced realtime broadcast-quality sample rate conversion, especially important when using content of a different sample rate than the network. Broadcasters running larger plants will love the fact that they can access drivers remotely via a separate control application. R3LAY VSC gives broadcast software developers the ability to make their products comply with the AES67 networking standard quickly and easily.
R3LAY VPB Virtual PatchBay
R3LAY VPB Virtual PatchBay, the Swiss Army knife of PC audio handling, works as a PC-based audio router with mixing functionality and integrated VST audio processing engine. Acting as middleware between audio hardware and software it allows unrestricted routing and mixing of audio signals from various sources – this is otherwise impossible to achieve with a standard PC system.
All audio sources and destinations in R3LAY Virtual PatchBay, regardless of if they originate from hardware audio interfaces, Audio-over-IP connections or software applications, are lined up in a clear matrix view. Interconnections between sources and destinations can be easily established with a mouse click. Its power doesn’t end with simple connections – adding multiple audio signals to a mix with variable volume levels is a core feature of R3LAY Virtual PatchBay. Whenever there is the need for enhancing audio signals, VST plugins can be added to the signal chain. R3LAY Virtual PatchBay includes Lawo‘s renowned processing suite – with the same algorithms used in Lawo’s mc² mixing desks.
Via its native RAVENNA Audio-over-IP integration, R3LAY Virtual PatchBay allows PC-based solutions like playout servers, softcodes servers or studio PCs to easily integrate with the facility‘s audio infrastructure. For seamless workflow integration, R3LAY Virtual PatchBay can be remotely controlled via the IP-based Ember+ protocol, e.g. by master control systems.
