NAB 2022: Lawo demos Home running on AWS Cloud
Lawo’s IP infrastructure management platform Home, which was launched in April 2021, has been successfully deployed in more than 60 installations worldwide over the past year, including systems on redundant server clusters and single-leg systems on the embedded CPU of mc² consoles.
Home’s architecture is based entirely on containerised microservices and therefore natively cloud-capable. “The next evolutionary step was always going to be cloud-hosted Home systems,” explained Axel Kern, Lawo’s senior director cloud and infrastructure solutions. “And cloud operation is now a reality for the Home community.”
During a live technology preview at NAB 2022, Lawo has demonstrated Home running on AWS, remotely controlling video and audio gear in Lawo’s UK offices via user interfaces operated directly from the show floor.
The company has also announced that Merging Technologies is the first native third-party Home citizen. “Home’s doors are wide open, and several vendors have expressed their interest,” commented Andreas Hilmer, Lawo’s chief marketing officer. “We can’t wait to welcome more vendors to the Home platform.”
