Sapphire Compact



Overview

sapphire compact is the ideal mixing desk for the modern AoIP studio. This console simplifies the workflow of complex and fast-paced live radio shows with a number of new innovative features. Autogain, for example, quickly optimizes the dynamic range of microphone preamps adaptively with a single button. Another Lawo innovation is Automix, our intelligent DSP algorithm which gives presenters the power to create content hands-free and error-free. Additionally, sapphire compact delivers a unique layering feature which allows the console to manage a live broadcast while also performing alternate tasks such as voice tracking, phone call editing, and even light production. The elegant and flexible control surface design is available in desktop or flush-mounted styles. A deceptively-compact 1RU engine powers the control surface and delivers sophisticated signal processing functions along with a full complement of audio inputs and outputs – both analog and digital, AoIP and baseband.
