Expanded Feature Set Demonstrates Ongoing Development Strategy
AMSTERDAM – Solid State Logic is proud to showcase its V3 Software for the innovative and industry-leading C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console at IBC 2011 (Hall 8. Stand D83). The V3 software release, first announced at NAB 2011 and now available as an upgrade, introduces a range of new features and options that significantly expand the capability of the console. The C10 turned the industry upside-down by delivering exceptional power at an attractive price point and the legacy continues with V3 software, further demonstrating the company’s ongoing development strategy.
“The C10 literally redefined the digital broadcast console through SSL’s innovative range of Production Assistant tools embedded in a compact and cost-effective form factor,” says Niall Feldman, director of new products for Solid State Logic. “With V3 software, the popular Dialogue Automix, 5.1 Upmix, DAW Control and Production Automation interfacing features are now joined by the C-Play playout system, integration with Mosart Medialab automation and compatibility with Reidel RockNet Audio Networks, to name a few features. With V3, the C10 will continue to lead the industry well into the future.”
The winning formula for C10 is a unique combination of large console power and features delivered in a compact, affordable and extremely intuitive package. In particular, a range of automated features and simplified controls make the C10 ideal for environments where users of varying skill levels will operate the console. The V3 software release includes a range of great new features which significantly expand and enhance the appeal of the product.
Highlights include ‘C-Play,’ another industry first from SSL that integrates a dual player professional audio playout system into the console surface. C-Play delivers superior ergonomics for the operator and integrated recall of playlists with console projects. Compatibility with external studio systems is significantly enhanced; V3 includes integration with Mosart Medialab Newscast Automation. Mosart is one of the world’s leading production automation systems and adds to existing support for Sony ELC and Ross Overdrive. Full duplex connectivity with Reidel RockNet Audio Networks (including remote preamp control and compatibility with their Independent Gain System) expands compatibility with installed audio networks. Audio Follow Video capabilities are also enhanced with independently programmable ramp on/off fade times.
Improving on a class leading set of redundancy capabilities, V3 introduces Loop Redundancy Mode for the SSL MORSE Stagebox and the new Alpha-Link Live-R MADI I/O unit. Building on the success of the Alpha-Link Live low-cost console I/O unit, the new Alpha-Link Live-R unit adds a set of Redundant MADI optical fiber connections to the existing Alpha-Link Live low-cost console I/O unit. The new Loop Redundancy Mode reduces the number of cables required for redundant fibre system installation and doubles the amount of audio signals that can be passed between the C10/C100 and the modular B-RIO I/O Unit.
V3 also brings several surround production additions. The 5.1 fold-down system adds user adjustable individual Center, Rear (LS and RS) and LFE gain setting, an overall stereo output level trim and a new M-3, M-6 mono fold-down option. A 5.1 BLITS Tone Ident generator routes to all 5.1 format PGM, ASG, channel and utility buses. Additional significant features include an Automatic Mix Minus Off-air Confidence Cue and Conference Mix option that improves communications in fast-paced talk show environments. Gate/Expander and Program Delay options to enhance the C10’s flexibility to precisely re-time audio in applications that introduce video processing delays.
V3 Software for C10 HD is now available.
