NAB 2017: SSL delivers new System T features

SSL is showing a variety of new System T features on its Booth C2627 at this year’s NAB Show, which is currently under way in Las Vegas, Nevada.

New features include support for hardware like TCR (Tempest Control Rack), and T25 (new Tempest Engine option), as well as the new Network I/O: SB 32.24 analogue/AES/Dante Stagebox, which incorporates onboard gain compensation splits compatible with any manufacturer’s console.

System T is SSL’s networked audio production console designed to handle large-scale broadcast productions in a multi-platform delivery-driven workflow.

Other important System T software developments include a more extensive path-live and mic-live feature set, access control levels and management for restricting features by operational level, 96kHz operation, extensive audio-follow-video controls update, full AES67 support for all Network I/O devices, provision for multiple loudness meter and True Peak meter instantiations in the FX Rack without compromising channel resources, and more.

A range of System T control interfaces can be connected anywhere on the network and incorporate multi-touch and gesture-driven screen technology and hardware control. Up to three consoles or control interfaces can control a single Tempest Audio Engine, while multiple engines can also be used on a single network.

Routing and I/O is based on the Dante AoIP network (integrating the AES67 transport standard) with complete routing control from the console GUI – featuring Dante HC (High Channel) connectivity.
