Solid State Logic (SSL) has revealed that it will launch a brand new compact audio console at IBC 2017 in the form of the System T – S300.
The S300 is a fixed layout compact control surface that can be combined with the complete portfolio of SSL’s System T network objects: consoles, remote tiles, touchscreen interfaces, Tempest Processing Engines, remote PC software and Network I/O. It can be specified as part of a larger System T installation or in stand-alone configurations for smaller broadcast facilities or OB vehicles.
It comes in two versions – 16+1 faders and 32+1 faders – and can connect to either a Tempest T25 (256 paths at 48kHz) or a T80 (800 paths at 48kHz) Processor Engine and runs the same software as the larger S500 surface and TCR (Tempest Control Rack).
SSL’s System T boasts an array of processing options and up to eight dialogue auto mixers and two dynamics sections per path, including compressors, oversampled true peak limiters, gates, expanders and de-essers. An additional effects rack provides multiple reverbs, dynamic EQ, noise reduction, signal generators, summing tools, upmixers, downmixers and SSL’s bus compressor as standard, meaning no external devices or audio connections are required. These inbuilt effects are designed to allow near zero latency, direct control and full recallability with the console showfile system. When applied to a path insert the effect automatically appears in the path GUI providing a logical workflow and intuitive user interface.
In addition to the vast number of third-party AoIP Dante devices that can be directly routing controlled from the console software, S300, S500 and TCR can be controlled by Production Automation packages (Ross Overdrive, GV Ignite, Sony ELC or Vizrt Mosart). Meanwhile, System T’s fully programmable Events Manager feature provides customisable GPIO and macro programming. From simple fader starts and AFV functions to multi source macro programming, events programming can be trailered to suit each production and managed directly from the console GUI.
