Dear industry friends!

Frankfurt – January 15th 2024 – arkona technologies GmbH, provider of IP core infrastructure solutions for top-tier broadcast productions announces that the exclusivity of the OEM license agreement with Lawo AG for the arkona products marketed under the V_line and V_matrix product name terminated on December 31st 2023.

As of January 1st 2024 onwards arkona technologies is therefore offering the complete range of BLADE//runner hardware products which includes AT300 100GE programmable accelerators (PAC) blades, 3RU, 2RU, 1RU and 2RU Low-noise 19" frames, IO_MGMT management and IO_BNC_16+16, IO_BNC_11+11, IO_BNC_16 and IO_MSC2 modules.

Software applications includes IPGR, JXS and PCAP. IPGR and JXS can host options for ColorCorrection, Video Mixing and Keying, MasterSystem Clock and PTP Grandmaster.

BLADE//runner software applications support the V_matrix C100 and V_matrix IO_BNC_x SDI modules as well. In addition the AT300 PAC will be able to host manifold CLOUD software service from our partner manifold technologies GmbH.


As many of you know, since 2012 Lawo has been the exclusive OEM partner and reseller of arkona technologies products worldwide. Under the “V-line” brand Lawo has marketed and sold our products starting with the V__pro8, V__link4, V__remote4, and lately the V__matrix software defined product line based on the C100 processing blade.

For the last 10 years this arrangement saw a lot of success for both of our companies. Lawo’s complete video product portfolio, which gained a market leadership position for IP based infrastructure and processing solutions, was during this time solely based on our technology.

It is our sincere hope that you will continue to make use of our products as we have every intention to continue developing and supporting them!

In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us directly!
