SSL INTRODUCES NEW CONSOLE I/O UNIT AND ENHANCED REDUNDANT I/O CAPABILITY

New Alpha-Link Live-R Adds Redundant Fibre Connectivity to Low-cost Alpha-LinkLive Console I/O Unit and New ‘Loop Redundancy Mode’ Expands Redundant Console I/O Capability

LAS VEGAS – Solid State Logic will introduce the new ‘Alpha-Link Live-R’ console I/O unit and expand redundant fibre connectivity options at the 2011 NAB Show (Booth C3310). 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 or C100 Digital Broadcast Console and the modular B-RIO I/O Unit.

ssl-c10-hd.jpg

“In live broadcast operations, signal integrity is of the utmost importance,? says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL Inc. “The new Loop Redundancy Mode expands SSL’s MADI Fibre redundancy for all our I/O and makes a redundant solution more affordable with Alpha-Link. We believe this Alpha-Link Live-R and Loop Redundancy Mode is the low-cost audio insurance policy for which the industry has been waiting.?

The new C10/C100 Loop Redundancy Mode uses a ‘Loop’ MADI optical fibre connection between the console’s main and backup Blackrock Processors to half the number of cables required to install a redundant I/O configuration. With Blackrock Loop Redundancy Mode, the need for main and backup fibers connecting to both main and backup processors in a redundant system is no longer required. With Loop Redundancy, the main fiber will connect to the main Blackrock, the backup fiber to the backup Blackrock. In the case of a main fiber failure, the Alpha-Link Live-R or MORSE Stagebox will switch to its backup port and the audio and control will be routed via the ‘Loop’ fibre connection from the backup Blackrock back to the main Blackrock, thus providing an elegant solution for both fiber and processor redundancy. The resultant reduction in consumption of MADI ports effectively doubles the maximum connectivity between console processors and a B-RIO unit.

About Alpha-Link Live-REach Alpha-Link Live-R unit provides 24 balanced analogue inputs and outputs (with high-quality 24-bit analogue conversion) and 12 AES input and output pairs (with eight channels of high 24-bit sample rate conversion). Alpha-Link Live-R is connected to the console using MADI over fiber, ensuring absolute signal integrity. Alpha-Link Live-R includes redundant PSUs, all fitted into a compact 2U rack.

Key Features:• Dual MADI Fiber I/O connections
• MADI I/O locked to C10 HD and C100 HDS highly stable clock
• 24 balanced Analogue I/O
• 12 Pairs of AES Digital I/O
• Fiber MADI guarantees pristine audio
• Embedded control data simplifies cabling and operation
• Analogue input/output metering via 24 tricolor LEDs
• Compact 2U Rack enclosure
• Redundant PSUs as standard

The SSL Console I/O range includes:• Alpha-Link Live-R
• Alpha-Link Live
• Alpha-Link 8RMP: 2U remote 8-channel mic amp unit
• B-RIO: fully scalable modular local console I/O system with comprehensive I/O options.
• MORSE Router: providing multi-console audio asset sharing
• MORSE Stagebox: remote modular I/O with analogue, digital and SDI embed/de-embed options.

Loop Redundancy Mode is part of the forthcoming C10 HD V3 and C100 HDS V4 Software release.

SSL EXPANDS CAPABILITY OF C100 HDS DIGITAL BROADCAST CONSOLE WITH RELEASE OF NEW V4 SOFTWARE AT THE 2011 NAB SHOW

New Features Extend Capability, Productivity and Connectivity for Broadcasters

LAS VEGAS – 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.

ssl-c100-hds.jpg

“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.
