Ruby Mixing Console
Meet ruby. Intuitive. Uncluttered. Powerful — yet so refined. Designed for flawless networking. With AutoMix smart mixing and a context-sensitive GUI. No other console is this smart. Smooth, sleek, and German-engineered. The AoIP console you’ve been waiting for.
When you’re live, there’s no time to search for the right control. No room for errors, either. Beneath Ruby’s svelte surface lie color-programmable visual cues, context-sensitive displays and custom workflow options. All to help ensure that your hands always find the control you need, first time — every time.
Thin is in.
Streamlined from every angle. All killer, no filler. Optimized controls — everything you need, nothing you don’t. Only 51 mm (2″) tall, from the bottom of its exquisitely cast side frames to the tops of its rotary selectors.
Slim, trim, and as sharp as the cutting edge.
Good design goes beyond good looks. Ruby controls are perfectly placed. They fall to hand naturally, easily. Designed for speed. Designed for accuracy. Premium-grade displays, faders, switches.
Because there’s no such thing as too much uptime.
Welcome to your command cockpit. Graphical, intuitive, customizable. So much more than just meters and a clock. No hunting for buried options: multi-touch controls instantly give what’s needed. Control studio devices. Tweak dynamics. Adjust virtual faders. Add true loudness metering. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
Everybody’s buzzing about AES67. And for good reason. Finally there’s a real standard for connecting together IP equipment from different manufacturers. This is why Ruby is 100% AES67-compliant. Some purveyors of proprietary protocols claim AES67 is incomplete — but we pair it with RAVENNA, the standards-based advertising and discovery protocol with AES67 compliance baked in. With Ruby, you can connect and control any studio hardware or software you choose, from the ever-expanding AES67 / RAVENNA universe.
Here are more broadcast companies who believe open standards are the only way to go.
Feast your eyes on pure power. Redundant IP networking. Dual-redundant power capability. Tons of built-in I/O, with room for even more. Dozens of DSP channels. It’s like 12 rack units of power, packed into only 1RU. Enough power to accomplish any task. Even the ones you haven’t thought of yet.
Base I/O includes four HD MADI ports and two AES67 connections. That’s a staggering 384 channels of stereo audio, standard. Want more? Rear-panel slots are waiting to accept up to eight more mic, line, digital, and MADI I/O modules.
DSP for days.
Power Core is a signal-processing superhero. Use DSP channels to apply parametric EQ, shelf, and bandpass filters. Gate, limit, expand, compress, and de-ess to your heart’s delight. Up to 96 channels of DSP processing! Overkill? Not when you’re the pro who needs it.
Expand. Customize. Connect.
Power Core has an amazing amount of HD MADI and AES67 I/O. And you can add even more. 8 expansion slots accept available mic, line, AES3, MADI, and Studio I/O cards. It’s the most flexible mixing engine ever.
The DSP difference.
You’d need 24 regular consoles to equal the DSP in Power Core. Why so much? Advantages like Lawo AutoMix, for one. Assign up to 32 signals – stereo or mono – to AutoMix. Then watch the magic as levels are perfectly, dynamically managed faster than hands can move. Your talk shows never had it so good.
Ruby: designed and built by skilled engineers in Rastatt, Germany. Legendary German quality. Premium components. The highest standards. Meticulous precision. Powerful. Reliable. Rock-solid, 24/7.
Lawo craftsmen. For them perfection isn’t a goal — it’s a way of life.
