Lawo V_pro8

The V_pro8 resembles a bridge builder. It is a compact, fully digital, 8-channel video processor comprising all of the glue features usually needed in the broadcast production workflow. Combining video and audio management in a single tool guarantees maximum efficiency and greatest operating safety, with significantly reduced space, wiring and cost. It is the perfect tool to connect different video formats as well as to connect between audio and video. It works by eight high quality 3G SDI de-embedders and a corresponding number of embedders being looped into the eight video signals. This enables any number of audio signals to be used from the video material, and new audio signals to be embedded into the video signal making it a simple, reliable and efficient solution.

Features

The V_pro8 can be configured via an easy-to-understand HTML 5-based touch screen interface that runs directly within the web browser. No software installation is needed. As a result, you benefit not only from state-of-the-art user-guidance, but also from elegant animations and many, practical features such as the video channel preview on your GUI. In addition, the web-based approach enables the user to access all V_line devices from anywhere within the network — a feature especially useful in bigger set-ups or in outside broadcast productions with long-distance links.

The V_pro8 fully supports the Ember+ protocol, enabling the device to be controlled by external master control systems like BFE’s KSC, Axon’s Cerebrum or Lawo’s Virtual Studio Manager. This allows operators to easily access multiple device parameters along with other routing parameters of the broadcast installation via a single, integrated interface. In addition, they get access to the V_pro8’s thumbnails and peak meters within the VSM desktop environment.
