HARMAN’s Studer: IBC Debut of D23m I/O System For Huge Channel Count

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – Featuring enhanced channel count architecture that allows customers of its Vista X and Vista V digital consoles to transfer a huge number of channels; HARMAN’s Studer is demonstrating the new D23m I/O system. The D23m works seamlessly with Studer’s new Infinity Core and A-Link interface technology.
The D23m is fully compatible with D21m systems already in the field; all existing D21m I/O-cards are fully compatible and can be used in the new D23m frame. Plug-and-play features like automatic card detection are also available with D23m.

The D23m offers a new and robust I/O frame for all future Studer mixing consoles using A-Link technology, wherever a high channel count is required. The ability to use D21m cards protects existing customer investments and offers a cost-effective solution. The use of different I/O modules, be it existing D21m cards or new I/O higher capacity and new format interfaces, provides an I/O system tailor-made for customer needs.
The audio between the mixing console or router system and the D23m connects via the A-Link interface. The A-Link HD card hosts a powerful processor to operate all required patching and may be used as the sync master to the system, or may be slaved to a variety of external synchronization signals.

The D23m can host up to 12 I/O cards with a total of 1,536 inputs and 1,536 outputs, dependent of the I/O cards fitted.

The new D23m I/O system comes with two A-Link ports and two hot-swappable power supplies (including secondary regulators) for secure, redundant operation. Status displays on the front panel indicate the status of the frame or the status of installed cards.

RECORD API 1608 SALES ALLOW FOR SUPERIOR COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY CURRICULUMS ACROSS THREE CONTINENTS

Hochschule_Musik_NurnbergJESSUP, MARYLAND – SEPTEMBER 2014: Since introduced at the 123rd AES Convention in New York City in October 2007, the API 1608 console continues to make its way into colleges and universities across the globe. In the past year alone, more 1608s have been placed in educational institutions compared to any other year since 2007. These full-featured consoles, each with various channels of recording and mixing capabilities, now grant students, ranging from high school to graduate school, the opportunity to learn on the analog technology used in professional studios all over the world.

“We’re very pleased to have placed so many of these highly-versatile consoles in the past year,” said Larry Droppa, president of API Audio. “Each of these 1608s will now join the ranks of top audio schools including the New England School of Communications, American University, and California State University.”

Since the summer of 2013, nearly a dozen consoles have been placed in schools including Nashville’s Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School, and Blackbird Academy. Colleges and universities in the United States include Emerson College in Massachusetts, Mesa Community College in Arizona, Broward College in Florida, Glendale Community College in California, and the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Locations outside the United States include the University of Western Ontario, Canada, Technologico de Monterrey in Mexico, the University of Örebro in Sweden, and Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg in Germany.

SUNY_PurchaseThe 1608 offers sixteen input channels, each with a mic pre and equalizer. It also has the option of adding sixteen-channel expanders, allowing for a 16, 32, or 48 channel console in total. API also offers its optional motorized fader automation system called P-Mix. Derived from the technology used extensively in API’s large format consoles, P-Mix offers a host of features found only in the most sophisticated console automation systems, often costing many times more.

“Since the 1608 is built to the same standards as our Vision and Legacy large-format consoles, it’s a powerful tool for students to learn with,” said Droppa. “It’s the same equipment used in some of the best recording facilities around the world, where many of the students will want to work after graduation.”

ABOUT API (AUTOMATED PROCESSES, INC.) Established more than 45 years ago, Automated Processes, Inc. is the leader in analog recording gear with the Vision, Legacy Series, 1608 and the BOX recording consoles, as well as its classic line of modular signal processing equipment.

HARMAN’s Studer Infinity Series and Vista Digital Consoles get Lexicon PCM96 and UAD Plug-Ins Support and Significant Feature Upgrade

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – At IBC 2014, HARMAN’s Studer is introducing the version 5.2 software upgrade to its Vista X, Vista V, Vista 1 and Vista 5 M3 digital consoles. This new software provides Vista operators with even greater versatility and ease of use, creating a more efficient mixing experience.

New to the 5.2 software are: the ability to assign Strip Setups as CUE events; support of the Soundcraft Realtime Rack (UAD plug-ins); support of Lexicon PCM96 Surround reverbs with Infinity Core; Input Gain unfold for multi-format channels; Spill Zone for contributing channels; GUI enhancements and new patch groups; A-Line embedded Ethernet; and contribution PAN in stereo channels to mono Aux busses.

With the 5.2 software, saved Strip Setups can be assigned as CUE Events in the CUE List. Recalling CUEs that have these events assigned, will automatically load the specified Strip Setup onto the desk’s surface. This feature is a great help for users who are mixing in a “scene”-based workflow like in application such as theatres and pre-programmed shows. Loading the CUEs for the next scene will also bring the currently needed channels onto the surface.

Up to four Soundcraft Realtime Racks, loaded with high quality Universal Audio (UAD) Plug-Ins, can now be connected to every Vista system. All plug-in parameters are saved and recalled by CUE events. The CUE events are also organized in a library and can be re-used for other CUE events. The individual CUE events can be enabled and disabled, and can be updated at any time.

Vista FX quality reverb is now also available for Vista X and Vista V running on Infinity Cores. Up to six (in pairs of two) original Lexicon PCM96 Surround reverb units can be connected over AES/EBU. Parameter control works over HARMAN HiQnet™ directly from the mixer’s Vistonics™ user interface.

In addition, stereo and 5.1 input channels will have individual digital input gain parameters for each channel leg. Pressing the button next to the ‘Main’ digital input gain Vistonics rotary will flip the input page into a view, where the individual digital input gain parameters (L, R, C, LFE, Ls, Rs) are accessible.

Channels contributing to any type of busses can immediately be brought up within a user-definable ‘Spill Zone’, on top of the desk’s active fader layer. Pressing the Contribution button of any bus channel in the control bay will line up all channels in the predefined Spill Zone, which are contributing to this bus, allowing full processing parameter access of these member channels. The user can quickly define the size, position and spill direction of the Spill Zone at any time from the Strip Setup page.

The 5.2 software’s User GUI is also enhanced with the well-known Ribbon Bar, giving a better overview and easier access for the operator. With the Infinity Core’s power, a huge amount of channels can be organized and controlled. To simplify this task, new user-definable Patch Groups, comprising easy-to-handle filtering options as well as customizable Source and Target views have been added.

For Infinity Core with D23m, the Ethernet control signal can be tunnelled together with the audio stream from the CoreLink card through the A-Link ports to the D23m’s HD cards. This means that no additional Ethernet cable has to be connected to the D23m’s Ethernet card anymore (although this option is still available).

Finally, in stereo channels, all contribution paths to mono Aux busses now have a PAN control before the mix-down to mono. This not only enables assignment of the channel’s left or right leg to the Aux bus, but also sends a user-defined mix of the stereo channel to the mono Aux bus. This dramatically expands the possibilities of signal contribution to loudspeakers, especially in theatres

New Infinity Core 200 Processing Engine Drives HARMAN’s Studer Vista V Digital Console

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – With the introduction of its Vista V digital console, HARMAN’s Studer is also unveiling the new Infinity 200 processing engine that drives the console. The Infinity 200 is designed for smaller facilities that require lower channel counts and full system redundancy.

The Infinity 200 offers the same benefits of the original Infinity DSP Core, which is found in the Vista X console, introduced earlier this year. The Infinity 200 enables up to 200 audio channels to be processed in a single CPU-based board.

The Infinity 200 features Studer A-Link high-capacity fiber digital audio interfaces, and D23m I/O frames are used to break out these A-Link connections to standard analog, digital, Audio over IP (AoIP) and video interfaces. The A-Link interface also provides direct connection to the Riedel MediorNet distributed router, allowing many Infinity systems to be connected together with router capacities of 10,000 square or more.
