Las Vegas, NV (April 9, 2010)–Solid State Logic will introduce C100 HDS V2 broadcast audio console, featuring new processing and I/O, at NAB 2010.
“As the demands on the broadcaster for higher channel counts and processing power are on the rise, our dedicated engineering staff has provided the C100 HDS with a powerful solution,” says Niall Feldman, director of new products at SSL. “We believe new installations will greatly benefit from the increased channel count and I/O options that V2 offers, while existing C100 HDS owners will appreciate the added power and flexibility.”
The V2 enhancements revolve around software and new processing cards for the C100 HDS two-rack space Blackrock processing unit. The new, higher capacity CPU card expands processing power to cover full DSP options to the increased number of regular channels available. The proprietary high channel count Blacklight technology delivers expanded I/O facility, commensurate with the power of the new CPU. This new interface reportedly delivers four times the channel count of MADI on a single connection, employing the same LC optical connector. The Blacklight connection is also fully redundant. A fully configured C100 HDS with the V2 upgrade is said to be capable of delivering up to 512 sources to the mix bus.
The C100 HDS V2 is shipping now and there is an upgrade path for existing Blackrock-based C100 HDS consoles available from SSL directly or through registered dealers. SSL will show the new C100 HDS V2 along with the C10 HD, C200 HD and the MORSE system at NAB 2010.
