Studer Introduces V2.1 Software For Route 6000 Audio Distribution System

With the advent of new V2.1 software, Studer’s Route 6000 audio distribution system has capabilities way beyond simple routing capability.

In addition to the Studer RELINK I/O sharing system delivered in V2.0, the new release features a host of new signal processes which may be applied to any internal signal, including mixing, downmixing (suited to deriving mono and stereo mixes from surround HD mixes) and upmixing, high and low-pass filters and EQs, dynamics, including brickwall limiters, compressors, expanders and gates.

Studer RELINK Makes Broadcast Studio Interconnection More Powerful Than Ever Before

Studer has announced the availability of the new Studer RELINK (Resource Linking) I/O Sharing system, which can link numerous Studer consoles in various locations of a Broadcast facility to allow audio source and control data sharing across a wide network.

One of the benefits of the Studer RELINK system in comparison to others is that it is based totally on Studer’s existing SCore system which is an integral part of a Studer console architecture, so no additional hardware or breakout boxes are required to complete the network. Any combination of Studer Vista (5, 6, 7, 8), the OnAir 2500 and 3000 consoles, as well as Route 6000 can link with each other via RELINK, communicating over TCP/IP. Other console-based networking systems on the market are often restricted to a single type of console.
