SSL Software for C10HD Console Gets Update
Solid State Logic’s C10HD compact broadcast console is getting an update courtesy of new V3 software. Highlights of the new software include ‘C-Play,’ another industry first from SSL, which integrates a professional audio Playout system into the console surface.
Compatibility with external studio systems is also significantly enhanced and V3 includes integration with Mosart Medialab Newscast Automation. 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.
“The acceptance by the industry of the C10 HD is nothing short of remarkable,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL, Inc. “Sales continue to climb worldwide and, with the addition of the new V3 Software, the C10 is more desirable than ever. The C10 is more powerful and connectable and will continue to lead the industry well into the future.”
V3 also 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.
Lastly, 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 new 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.
