Toronto, Ontario, Canada — September 5, 2013… With ENCO Systems, Lawo has won over an internationally renowned manufacturer of radio and TV automation systems for an integration partnership. As of now it is possible to automate a multitude of functions between the Lawo sapphire and crystal mixing consoles and ENCO’s DAD automation system. For all ENCO and Lawo customers, the seamless integration means convenient operation, since the DAD design reflects the visual appearance and philosophy of the console’s operational workflow. The bi-directional data transfer between the Lawo consoles and the DAD automation system is established entirely over IP, using RAVENNA technology for audio.

“With the integration of our products we provide our customers with a solution that significantly simplifies the installation. It’s now all based on an IP network, which means we have only one single infrastructure for audio and control”, states Ken Frommert, Director – Marketing and International Sales at ENCO Systems.

The integration partnership of ENCO and Lawo follows already existing cooperations of Lawo with Scisys and d’accord, both also well-known manufacturers of automation systems. Lawo will present a fully operational system integration in booth 8.C71 at this year’s IBC in Amsterdam.
