Solid State Logic IBC2019 Preview
Launched earlier this year, IBC will see the first European showing of the new S500m console. With all the flagship features of the System T S500 console in a significantly lighter form factor, the S500m is specifically designed for OB and flypack applications where weight and portability are key concerns. It’s unique modular functionality also lets a console be deployed with or without an extended meter bridge. This allows a complete production system to be easily be transport in a purpose built rack case, providing a console stand, meter bridge shipping storage and two 8RU racks for Tempest Engines and Network I/O.
Immersive and Next Generation Audio (NGA)
Supporting the demand for NGA within broadcast content, System T’s architecture provides processing for multiple audio formats for immersive and three-dimensional audio; channel-based, objects, Ambisonics and binaural. With support for multiple formats including ATSC 3.0, Dolby Atmos, and MPEG-H, the recent Sennheiser AMBEO partnership now adds on-board conversion support for the AMBEO VR Mic, with a 360 transcoder to render to a wide range of multi-channel outputs from 4.0 to 7.1.4.
Multi-format IP Based I/O
Expanding SSL’s Dante-based IP Network I/O portfolio, the HC Bridge SRC provides 256 bi-directional channels of sample rate conversion for AoIP networks. The HC bridge SRC facilitates connecting audio between devices running at different sample rates or in different clock domains on a Dante (48khz and 96khz), AES67 or ST 2110-30 networks. The two network connections can be physically or virtually separate networks, providing control isolation between two sets of equipment where an “AoIP discovery and control firewall” is required.
