Lawo releases Virtual Studio Manager V16.1
Lawo, manufacturer of broadcast control and monitoring System VSM (Virtual Studio Manager), has announced VSM Release 16.1. VSM is an IP-based broadcast control system, used in the most demanding production setups around the world. Available immediately, the release brings several new features, changes and bug fixes, including changes and updates to several VSM modules, as well as performance enhancements.
Gadget Server 5 now offers full support for the Dante protocol. Additionally, support for the Master Card status swap (active, passive) for Lawo DMS is now included. In vsmStudio, double-clicking on GPIOs navigates through the GPIO configuration. The user-assignable button attachment is a new function that allows users to change a button’s attachment. Unlike the mimic button, which replicates the entire functionality of another button, this new function solely copies the attachment of the original button (if compatible). This allows operators to configure a panel during runtime.
The vsmStudio software is the heart of the VSM system – it is the main administration and configuration tool that runs continuously on all VSM servers in the system. From here, an easy-to-use GUI provides all the functions, tools and setup wizards to control and customize a VSM system to a specific application and workflow needs. Additionally, all connected hardware settings and statuses are shown in real-time, with instant control and feedback.
