LWB-16M/64 Optical Wiring System
What is LWB?

The Otari LWB (Lightwinder Broadcasting) is an appratus that converts various signals being handled at an outside broadcasting venue into digital data and transmits it via optical fiber cables.
Such signals include microphone, MADI (AES10), and other audio signals (digital and analog), intercom signals, SDI & HD-SDI video signals and control signals.

The LWB series are available in two models: a portable field unit “LWB-16M” and a rack mount type unit “LWB-64”. The signal I/O configuration of each unit can be flexibly arranged by changing the modules to be inserted.

By adding the dedicated modules and commentary boxes, the LWB system can be used as a digital commentary system.

Although the LWB system is designed to run without any PC control, your LWB system will be highly enhanced in usability by adding “Lightwinder Commander V2 (LwcV2)” Remote Control/Monitor GUI application software.

Brief History of Lightwinder: The Lightwinder LW-10 “Stage Master” and “Console Master” released from Otari in 1996 is a digital multichannel wiring system that uses fiber-optic cables for Point-to-Point connection and is suitable for relay broadcasting of large scale sports games and PA for concert tours. On the other hand, the LW-50 “Colosseum” which debuted in 1997, and the LW-55 released in 2004, are designed to provide Multipoint connection and GUI on a PC, and are aimed at large scale fixed installations such as stadiums, theaters and concert halls.
The new lineup of Otari Lightwinder, LWB (Lightwinder Broadcasting) has been designed as a high mobility, simple, compact and light-weight audio/video signal transmission system for outside broadcasting, based on in-depth experience and know-how gained in the development of the LW-10, LW-50 and LW-55, and feedback from our customers.
