Lawo introduces version 4.4 software for mc2 consoles

Lawo announced version 4.4 software for its mc2 series production consoles, which includes the mc290, mc266 and mc256. With the Lawo Router MKII, the new software provides a redundant control system that initiates an automatic takeover if an error on the router module/control system occurs. The control system redundancy activates if the standby system notices a loss of the connection between both control systems. This can occur as a result of either a software failure or a hardware error in the active control system.

In addition, users can initiate a manual takeover from the system page. During initialization and after plugging in a second Router MKII, the router cards will synchronize to the system.

Other advancements the software introduces in order to streamline and protect workflow include increased capability for Error Log via Web browser functionality, color coding of channels from the Channel Configuration page, new DSP configurations, and a Free Control Preset Selection per fader bay.
