Lawo Introduced LIME Immersive Mixing Engine for mc˛ Consoles at IBC 2017
Lawo, German manufacturer of pioneering audio, video, and control solutions, introduced at this year's IBC show LIME, a comprehensive solution for mixing and monitoring 3-D immersive productions on mc˛ consoles. The product was developed in close cooperation with New Audio Technology, developer of immersive audio solutions for industrial, professional, and end user applications.
The Lawo Immersive Mixing Engine (LIME) provides integrated control with Lawo's mc˛ series consoles and is capable of producing all relevant 3-D/Immersive audio mixes used by formats like Dolby Atmos (7.1.2 & 5.1.4 bed), MPEG-H, AURO-3D, DTS:X, NHK 22.2, IMAX 6.0 and 12.0, Sennheiser AMBEO 3D Audio for loudspeaker systems. Furthermore, it is ready for MPEG-H's TV Audio System, included in ATSC 3.0, designed for personal audio and broadcast applications. In addition, LIME includes a headphone monitoring solution for 3-D and surround productions, featuring New Audio Technology's market-leading binaural speaker virtualization Headphone Surround 3D. Music and film productions like Kraftwerk 3D, Expendables I-III, Frankenstein, and Mr & Mrs Smith have already utilized this feature. LIME's monitoring capabilities open up new horizons for monitoring and mixing Surround/3D productions in environments that don't allow for large-scale monitoring solutions.
