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.

All these new functions are incorporated with no loss or compromise of DSP power – all input and output connections are available no matter how signal processes are applied.

New surveillance processes, which are assignable to any internal signal, detect silence and overload detection, capable of triggering more

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.

RELINK is seamless, scaleable, flexible, and can start with a simple link between more

New Studer Onair 2500 Modulo Variant Now Available

Studer has introduced a new modular version of the successful OnAir 2500 Broadcast console for installation in custom studio furniture. The new model, named the OnAir 2500 Modulo, has separate modules for fader bays and master section, along with a rack-mountable mainframe which houses the power supply and host processing. These modules can be recessed into a desktop for a clean installation with all cables integrated within the furniture and the mainframe hidden appropriately.

The OnAir 2500 Modulo was introduced after demand from the market for a recessable console. In Switzerland, a custom version of the OnAir 2500 console was built into a stunning desk at Radio 105 / Radio Monte Carlo, which changes colour when it is on-air, mics are live or off-air.

The OnAir 2500 digital all-in-one Broadcast console utilises well-established software technology derived from the highly acclaimed OnAir 3000 console to deliver a new standard more

Studer Vista Consoles Destined For New Media City Complex

Studer is supplying two flagship Vista consoles to Peel Media for two large radio studios under construction in the new MediaCityUK complex at Salford Quays in Manchester.

One of the Studer Vista consoles will be used in the recording hall for the world renowned BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and strengthens the use of Studer consoles for recording and broadcast of classical music with similar consoles used at Maida Vale, London, Glasgow City Halls and Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff.

A second console will be installed in the Multi Purpose Audio Suite (MPAS), which will be used for radio drama, pop music recording and other radio productions requiring a large studio.

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.

Using the ADAT card, it is possible to connect two ports of eight channels (inputs and outputs) to an ADAT-equipped hard disk or software-based recorder, so two cards would enable 32 channels of audio to be recorded and played back almost instantaneously.

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

Landmark Yamaha PM1D Digital Console Retires on 10TH Anniversary

BUENA PARK, Calif.⎯On September 22, 1999, the Yamaha PM1D first-of-its-kind digital mixing system designed specifically for live sound reinforcement made its debut at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The PM1D started a digital revolution in live sound, and its worldwide popularity resulted in significant sales, and the beginning of a new era.

Now 10 years later, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced that Yamaha Corporation Japan has reached the limit on availability of key components. Therefore, in order to secure enough parts for customer service well into the future, the production of this legendary mixing system will cease in December 2009. Current requests for PM1D systems will be fulfilled, and limited quantities will remain available until the existing stock is depleted.

The company is not resting on its laurels, however, and has made available online a brief ‘white paper’ that will provide customers with its concept more
