Solid State Logic Announces V2.3 System T Broadcast Production Platform

Solid State Logic (SSL) has announced the latest V2.3 System T broadcast production platform release, with new features for the range of System T consoles; S500, S500m, S300 and TCR. For live broadcast, event space audio, recording and postproduction duties, this latest release includes DAW control, Immersive audio, Dynamic Automation, Patch Manager CSV files, Access Control, Event Manager, Scene Automation, and fully featured on-board FX rack.

SSL has also announced the Network I/O V4.0 update, which includes ST 2110, ST 2059-2, and ST 2022-7 support for all devices, providing standards based AoIP and Dante technology simultaneously on the same chipsets. This allows installations to leverage IP networks for both infrastructure and consoles-based audio routing workflows, without proprietary hardware TDM routers. It also adds support for TSL UMDv5 providing the audio operator with accurate information about the source currently presented on each fader.

An additional tone inject on the channel input provides simple signal path checking, while a new per path talkback inject for channel and bus direct outputs enhances communications switching and conferencing. Cue and Auto Cue further simplify communication with outside and remote sources, greatly reducing the console operator’s tasks during broadcasts with complex remote feeds.

System T’s Event Manager provides graphical and user programmable macro functionality for GPIOs, Console functions, MIDI, AFV, Ember+, User Keys, Fader starts, and Scene triggers. Expanded for V2.3 this extensive list of user definable event triggers is joined by path event controls. Three controls per path provide up to 2400 additional assignable switches, controllable from the touchscreen or hardware quick controls above the faders. The events system also gains an event tally feature, driven from a GPI or specific function, user key LEDs can be externally controlled.

V2.3 brings Dante Domain Manager (DDM) login capability directly into the console software. Support for Network I/O Dante HC SRC, plus SB 32.24 and SB 16.12 SRC capability has been added to facilitate mixed sample rate or separate clock domain use. Scenarios that requires audio sharing, without exposing networks to either team can be achieved directly on the stage boxes or across a high capacity 256 channel bridge.

A graphical FFT analyser overlay is now available on the channel and bus, EQ and Filters GUI. The fixed-point-per-octave analyser has equal resolution across the entire frequency range. V2.3 brings further additions and updates to the onboard FX rack. The Dynamic EQ module benefits from a full graphical redesign and additional functionality including per band threshold trigger function.

T-SOLSA provides System T control software for standalone computers or virtualized servers. T-SOLSA is designed for use as an active remote-control, a training tool, or an offline setup application. V2.3 adds full screen mode for each app allowing large engineering “dashboard” capabilities, or feeds into multi viewers for overview and FX rack metering.
