Lawo has rolled out a new version of the RƎLAY virtual radio software suite that it says is optimized to run in virtual machines.
The RƎLAY v4.2 software runs on standard Windows-based PCs and laptops, either standalone or as part of a Ravenna/AES67 network. Users can also deploy the software within virtual machines hosted on cloud-based servers.
The RƎLAY virtual radio software family comprises four apps. These include RƎLAY VRX, a touchscreen-enabled Virtual Radio Mixer available in a four-fader, 12-input version (VRX4). And an eight-fader, 24-input version (VRX8) with features such as Lawo AutoMix, Autogain and the ability to host VST plugins.
Also, RƎLAY VPB is a Virtual Patch Bay application that can mix and route traditional audio sources, audio from PC apps, Ravenna/AES67 streams and machine-logic commands.
In addition, the RƎLAY AoIP Stream Monitor is an inspection and monitoring tool for AES67 networks with configurable audio presence monitoring, loudness metering, signal quality analysis and SDP inspection for up to 16 critical AES67 streams.
Finally, RƎLAY VSC Virtual Sound Card is an 8×8 Ravenna/AES67 sound card replacement for Windows PCs.
All RƎLAY software runs on PCs with standard Windows versions, and in VMWare Server 6.6 virtual machine environments. RƎLAY users can download the v4.2 software upgrade directly from the Lawo Download center at www.lawo.com.
