Designed for advanced live audio production or broadcast applications, Lawo's new mc2 96 Grand Audio Production Console is available in frame sizes with 24 to 200 faders and offers native support of all relevant standards — SMPTE 2110, AES67, Ravenna and Dante.

Also standard is plug-and-play interfacing to Lawo DALLIS modular stageboxes, A-line interfaces and NOVA central routers. The mc2 96 surface includes local I/Os with 16 Lawo-grade mic/line inputs, 16 line outs, 8 AES-3 inputs/outputs, 8 GPIOs and a local MADI port.
