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. The upmixing process uses proprietary Harman algorithms to develop panning in 5.1 upmixes in ‘width’ mode, or standard 5.1 panning.

More Option Cards For Soundcraft Vi Series Add Broadcast Appeal And Bring Recording Opportunities

At IBC 2009, Soundcraft is featuring more option interface cards for its Vi Series Digital Live Sound consoles, expanding the applications of the highly popular digital mixer into broadcast, and adding easy capabilities for direct recording from the desk.

The SDI and Dolby® E cards will be welcomed by broadcasters, as it means the desk can handle the de-embedding of audio channels from within SDI video streams (and re-embedding for onward transmission), and the decoding of up to 8 channels of audio from a Dolby Digital or Dolby E stream. All individual audio channels are then available within the Vi Series’ digital patchbay for more
