Palo Alto, CA (April 27, 2009)–Euphonix announced a slew of updates for its mixing console products at the NAB Show 2009.
The new SH624 router is now available for integrating Euphonix System 5 and Max Air digital audio mixing systems with facility routers, using the ES-Switch Protocol, including Harris-Leitch, Nvision, Pro-bel, QuStream, Sony, Thompson-Grass Valley and Utah Scientific systems. The SH624 includes 24 MADI ins and outs for a maximum of 1,536 x 1,536 signal paths at 48KHz, doubling the size of the current SH612 router.
The current DF66 DSP SuperCore for System 5-B/BP and Max Air supports up to 334 channels. It also supports a dual DSP SuperCore 100 percent redundancy system for broadcasters and can handle up to six of the same DSP SP663 cards as the DF70. The new DF70 supports up to 8 SP663 cards for the highest channel count applications. The DF70 also includes 32 MADI I/O for a total of 2,048 x 2,048 inputs managed by the console’s PatchNet routing software.
The DF70 ships early in April 2009 with composer Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Studios in Santa Monica, CA taking the first units.
New control surface options for the S5 Fusion allow up to 56 faders, in 5-ft., 7-ft. or 9-ft. frames. It is now possible to add the 403 PEC/Direct film monitoring modules, and a 402 sub-master central assign module. The new SP663 DSP cards increase the channel count to over 100 channels at 48 kHz and the system can also be run at 96 kHz with 50 percent less channels.
The new version 1.4.1 software release of the company’s high-speed Ethernet control protocol, EuCon, for MC Pro and System 5-MC DAW controllers, adds new features and includes support for MOTU’s Digital Performer 6, the latest DAW software application to include full EuCon protocol for the ultimate integration with Euphonix controllers. The software also includes Vista operating system compatibility together with updated support for Pro Tools 8 and Pyramix version 6.1.3 via EuCon.
