Las Vegas, NV (April 27, 2006)–Solid State Logic made several new product announcements at NAB2006, introducing MORSE–Modular Resource Sharing Engine–for the C100 digital broadcast console, new DAW control protocols and a new look in the AWS 900+, and announcing a major expansion of its business with products based on its new MediaWAN digital video technology platform.
The MORSE system is comprised of modular I/O, stageboxes and router hardware, with optional PC control software, allowing extremely dense concentration of audio I/O and router matrices for simple to large-scale applications. The router and stagebox hardware have low power consumption, convection cooling, and proprietary technology using flash memory, thus removing the common causes of failure and offering the silent operation that allows studio floor positioning.
New control protocols are incorporated into the new AWS 900+ Analogue Workstation System for a wide range of DAWs, including Nuendo, Sonar, Digital Performer and Logic. Using the new control protocols, plug-ins and virtual instruments can now be controlled from the D-Pots and the faders, a hotly requested feature from many workstation users. An enhanced display allows up to 6 character labels for track/channel names and the console also now features workstation Master Fader support.
AWS 900+ builds on the successful formula by adding tighter integration with all popular DAW platforms, enhancements to the displays and meters, and a sleek ‘platinum’ styling.
SSL’s new MediaWAN Gravity is a complete, scalable broadcast production system that utilizes proprietary software running on standard high-performance PCs and servers. Geared to the fast-moving, multi-format nature of today’s media operations, the software provides encoders to import video from a variety of sources including HD, a preview and job allocation interface for production co-ordinators, editing software for journalists and management tools for news producers. An asset management database and user interface also provide for seamless information lifecycle management in the video domain.
In addition, MediaWAN technology has also been developed to provide a highly cost-effective backhaul service. MediaWAN Backhaul allows media networks to install encoders at remote locations and automatically ingest video and audio content to central servers where it is immediately available for use.
