Lawo has launched a new IP-based product that allows a virtualised real-time production infrastructure to be added to an OB truck, TV studio or broadcast facility.

The V_matrix is a software-defined core routing and processing platform that can work with both IP and SDI signals. Intended to work like a baseband router, it creates a distributed IP routing and processing matrix by having multiple cores that are connected to a highcapacity COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) switch with redundant 10GigE and 40GigE connections.
