Control & Monitoring Systems > LAWO smartDASH

The Lawo System Monitoring And Realtime Telemetry Dashboard (aka smartDASH) is a vendor-agnostic enterprise software suite designed to provide full network and media visibility across an all IP, all SDI or hybrid WAN/LAN broadcast infrastructure.

Strategically positioned to bridge the gap between IT and Video engineering, smartDASH straddles both sides of the operation to provide a comprehensive view of what the network is doing and how the media streams flowing across the network are behaving.

Based on a UNIX OS, this software defined networking solution incorporates a powerful and robust database to document and rapidly search any aspect of the operation, from a simple cable ID number to seeking the journey of a multicast across a transnational multi-hop WAN. Additionally, by leveraging a vast library of hardware communication protocols, the system automatically interrogates live and dormant path connections to create the most intuitive and data rich presentation layers of a COTS-hybrid infrastructure. 

With its award winning deep packet inspection microservices, smartDASH supports monitoring and decoding a wide range of media formats, from low bitrate OTT/ABR streams to uncompressed ST2110 studio production flows, in addition to characterizing the packet pacing off the delivery network.
This unique approach brings a deeper dimension of operational visibility by unifying network telemetry and mixed media flow into a single glass view.

smartDASH users have a zero-footprint installation and can be deployed on-prem, private or public cloud with HTTP accessibility from a browser or mobile device. This vendor-agnostic state-of-the-art software solution is an essential component to the conscious operation of any IP-based broadcast installation.
