SSL DEMONSTRATES EXPANDED CAPABILITY OF C100 HDS WITH NEW V4 SOFTWARE AT IBC 2011
New Features Extend Capability, Productivity and Connectivity for Broadcasters
AMSTERDAM – Solid State Logic will feature its new V4 Software for the industry standard C100 HDS Digital Broadcast Console for the first time at IBC 2011 (Hall 8. Stand D83). Demonstrating on-going development of the industry standard C100 HDS, the new V4 Software release, announced at NAB 2011, offers new features and options that significantly increase capability, productivity and connectivity for the high-end broadcaster. The V4 software package, which has generated keen interest from the industry, is available now as an upgrade.
“As broadcasters across the world are implementing systems to enhance and streamline the production process to meet budget considerations, SSL is responding with its new V4 software package for the C100,” says Niall Feldman, director of new products for Solid State Logic. “V4 delivers exceptional power to the broadcast facility with enhanced integration with third-party broadcast systems and though our unique ‘Production Assistant’ tools, which integrate, streamline and automate key broadcast tasks.”
Highlights of the new software include ‘C-Play,’ another industry first from SSL, which embeds a professional audio playout system into the console surface, delivering superior ergonomics for the operator and integrated recall of playlists with console projects. Compatibility with external studio systems is significantly enhanced; V4 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. Continuing with the integration theme, 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, V4 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 fibre 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.
V4 also brings several surround production additions. The 5.1 Foldown 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 new 5.1 BLITS Tone Ident generator routes to all 5.1 format PGM, ASG, Channel and Utility Buses.
