(NAB 2011--April 8, 2011) Solid State Logic will debut its new V4 Software for the industry standard C100 HDS Digital Broadcast Console at the 2011 NAB Show (Booth C3310). Demonstrating on-going development of the C100 HDS, the new V4 Software release offers new features and options that significantly increase capability, productivity and connectivity for the high-end broadcaster.
“The well-established C100 HDS continues to dominate the broadcast, education and high-end corporate market by providing uncompromising power, flexibility and sound quality,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL, Inc. “With the V4 Software, this most powerful console presents more options for integrating into existing broadcast systems, while providing new creative tools for engineers and producers.”
Highlights of the new software include ‘C-Play’, another industry first from SSL, which integrates a professional audio playout system into the console surface, delivering superior ergonomics for the operator, integrated recall of playlists with console projects and a competitive price benefit. 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 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.
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.
V4 Software for C100 HDS is due for release in June 2011.
