Lawo Cooperation with New Audio Technology

Lawo introduced LIME Immersive Mixing Engine for mc2 Consoles at IBC 2017


Lawo introduced at this year’s IBC show LIME, a comprehensive solution for mixing and monitoring 3D immersive productions on mc² 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 mc² series consoles and is capable of producing all relevant 3D/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 revolutionary headphone monitoring solution for 3D 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.
