Las Vegas, NV (March 15, 2013)—Solid State Logic has unveiled its new V4 Software for the C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console and will have it unhand at the 2013 NAB Show in April.
Highlights of the V4 upgrade include ‘Function Key Macros,’ a feature which reduces the number of physical actions required to achieve specific tasks by allowing multiple two state console switching functions to be grouped as a Macro and then actioned via soft keys, GPIs and fader functions. Another feature is ‘HyperRoute,’ which allows operators to use a versatile source and destination group-based approach with operation from the actual control surface, rather than a separate computer.
The console’s new ‘Assignable Delay Modules’ aims to speed up integrating a range of external sources into live-to-air feeds. A total of 32 of the 64 available delays can now be routed anywhere, including Aux and Monitor inserts, or external I/O destinations that pick up internal or external sources as inputs.
SSL’s ‘Dialogue Automix’ feature controls audio levels and maintains consistent ambience for multi-mic news and panel shows. A new ‘Automix Overide’ function provides an option to automatically close the pre fader feed to the Dialogue Automix system when the participants channel fader is closed.
The maximum channel count available for C10 has also been increased to 160 channels and the V4 upgrade introduces optional new ‘Wide Range 2 Band Filters,’ which add high and low pass filters to the channel signal path, expanding the channel EQ to become a full six-band parametric. The new ‘Eyeconix Processing Display’ enables switching of the channel info displays to show EQ, Dynamics and panning graphs instead of Eyeconix images.
A new ‘Mix Minus Lock’ feature introduces the C10 to a new approach to creating and editing Mix Minus busses. In this new mode, all channels are initially routed to the Mix Minus busses; the in-channel Mix Minus routing buttons can then be used to exclude channels from each bus as required.
