Los Angeles, CA (April 10, 2015)—Roland will showcase the broadcast features of its new M-5000 mixing console at the NAB Show.
The M-5000, based on the O.H.R.C.A platform, delivers freely definable audio paths, supporting multiple audio formats protocols, plus 96 kHz sound quality throughout the system. Because of the architecture of the M-5000, the 128 audio paths can be freely defined, including 5.1 surround mixing and monitoring, mix-minus busses, GPIO triggers and delay.
The 5.1 surround functions can be accessed to change pan positions via the built-in touch panel or free downloaded remote control software. For 5.1-channel monitoring, individual delay and alignment functions can be adjusted to speaker levels and delays. When using 5.1surround mode, operators can select output destinations and a simultaneous stereo downmix. Delays on every input and output with several different frame rates allow broadcasters the ability match the output.
Using the O.H.R.C.A. platform in the M-5000, a typical broadcast setup might include 84 mixing channels, 5.1 + LR output mix, six mono auxes, 8 Matrix, 5.1+LR monitor setup, two downmixes, talkback, headphone monitoring and talkback channel.
The M-5000 has two built-in REAC ports, plus two expansion card slots with seven expansion card options that include Dante, MADI, Waves SoundGrid, or more REAC ports, as well as future formats. The additional XI-Expansion Card options also include XI-SDI to mix 16-channels in/out of embedded audio off an SDI cable. It also includes XI-DVI for mixing up to 2-channels and the XI-SFP card for Fiber Optics and Gigabit Ethernet communications with up to 16-channels in/out ideal for broadcasting applications.
