Oxford, UK (April 22, 2020)—Solid State Logic has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, among the most prestigious awards for UK businesses, recognizing and celebrating business excellence across the U.K. The company was awarded for its excellence in innovation, for audio technology for broadcast.
The award recognizes SSL’s System T broadcast platform, launched in 2015, which offers AoIP-based routing at its core, plus immersive and next-generation audio features.
Nigel Beaumont, SSL’s managing director, comments, “At Solid State Logic, we are incredibly proud to receive this award as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We dedicate it to all our amazing staff, partners and clients, past and present. Being part of Audiotonix since 2017 means we have new levels of expertise and ongoing investment to help us continue to innovate, and this award for System T is testament to that.”
As Thomas Jensen of the Systems & Support Group at Solid State Logic told Pro Sound News readers in a recent Innovations column, “Our System T, originally launched in 2017, was a significant step forward for broadcast operators. Its namesake derives from the SSL-developed Tempest engine, which allows an unprecedented degree of flexibility and audio processing on a very large scale. Rather than running on dedicated fixed signal processing hardware such as DSP or FPGA-based technology, Tempest relies on SSL’s own Optimum Core Processing (OCP) software on an industrial PC platform. In a quickly evolving market, this allows SSL to update dynamic feature sets so users can adapt to new operational and workflow requirements, such as immersive audio.”
