SSL System T Brings the Future to Videotime
Studio 10 is a substantial 1050 square meters and is normally used for large entertainment shows, and talk shows such as Verissimo and Quarto Grado, as well as one-off large-scale broadcast events. It usually runs up to 12 HD cameras, along with two live translation booths.
The System T installation consists of a large, three-bay, 48-fader S500 control surface, redundant T80 Tempest Audio Engines, plus SSL Network I/O stageboxes and SDI bridges.
One particular aspect of System T that appealed to Videotime was its control interface; specifically, the flexible nature of control across the S500 surface suits Studio 10's busy production schedule. "Processing control particularly," Says Videotime's Luca Gherardi, project engineer. "It can be approached in different ways - different 'control modes'... Quite a few different engineers use the System T in Studio 10, and each one has their own particular configuration and approach."
Another advantage is the slimming down of the overall infrastructure that comes with System T's network-native architecture and routing system, incorporating full network-wide Dante routing. "System T has made the whole installation much simpler," says Marco Cosso, Service Engineer at Videotime. "We've removed almost all patchbays and we no longer need the audio side of our studio's AV matrix. All audio routing is done by System T, via Dante, and of course when you load a show file, you load all audio routing. That's a big advantage."
