Redefining Sports Audio Production with Lawo KICK at IBC

(PresseBox) ( Rastatt, )
New and innovative technology from Lawo, a leading manufacturer of digital audio solutions and IP-based video routing equipment, will ensure the evolution of audio production for major live sports. KICK automated control for close-ball mixing makes its debut at IBC (Hall8 Stand B50).

When interfaced with modern image analysis and tracking systems, KICK’s unique, patent-pending, technology guarantees a consistent, fully-automated, high-quality, close-ball audio mix for sports such as soccer, rugby and American football. KICK’s intuitive graphical user interface allows easy adjustment of all of all of its parameters, including the placement of microphones, their polar patterns and microphone prioritization.

Noise-to-Kick brings audio into focus

The system ensures transparent sound pickup with its excellent ‘noise-to-kick’ ratio, significantly reducing crowd noise. It also ensures a consistent audio level without noticeable fades for seamless inclusion in a broadcast mix, and delivers a mix that is 100% repeatable from match to match. It remains highly accurate, even after 90 minutes of play.

KICK is available as a software-only solution for productions using Lawo mc² mixing consoles, as well as a hardware bundled solution for productions using consoles from other manufacturers. It requires a standard host PC (running Windows 7 or Windows 8) for the host application, and an HTML5 capable browser for the user interface. An optional Lawo mc² Micro Core hardware processing engine is available for interfacing micro core to third-party consoles via MADI and RAVENNA/AES67.

The mc² Micro Core can be controlled by a variety of external studio control systems, as well as Lawo’s touchscreen mxGUI software, making it perfect for smaller automated applications where external control systems trigger operation – such as automated newsrooms. Other applications include small routing applications with DSP processing, like installed sound applications.
