NTP Technology to launch BLISS software console at IBC2008
NTP Technology has chosen IBC2008 to launch BLISS, a powerful mixer control surface operating on a standard PC.
Designed for use with NTP's 625 and Penta 725 audio routers, BLISS is configurable for up to 24 channels displayed on two adjacent widescreen computer monitors. It allows configuration of source and destination on each channel as well as master effects and signal processing. Linked to the router via standard IP connection, the NTP audio software console provides the functions of a powerful digitally controlled desk in a more compact footprint than a traditional horizontal hardware-based installation.
"BLISS's ability to balance and control 24 channels of audio from two display screens offers huge advantages in mobile production vehicles and post-production suites where space is often at a premium," said Mikael Vest, NTP technology sales director. "The BLISS control surface is highly intuitive to operate and overcomes issues such as contamination from tobacco dust or fluids, which are always a hazard when using traditional audio consoles. Sound balancers accustomed to hardware-based desks will find BLISS very easy to use and will appreciate its robustness and compactness. The entire control surface can be operated using a standard PC mouse or, for easy multiple fader adjustment, via touch screen."
NTP Technology's primary routing system is the 625 audio router. The recently introduced Penta 725 router family can be used in a variety of compact configurations or as a basis for large-scale 10K x 10K switching.
