New desk intended for OB and flypack applications.

Las Vegas, NV (March 28, 2019)—At this year’s NAB Show, Solid State Logic will launch the latest surface addition to its System T range, the new S500m console.

The desk can be specified as 32- and 48-fader versions with turnkey flight case solutions, or as a larger custom specification surface with up to 96 faders.

The S500m provides all the flagship features of the System T S500 console in a form factor said to be 25 percent lighter and specifically designed for OB and flypack applications where weight and portability are key concerns.

The S500m’s modular functionality also lets a console be deployed with or without an extended meter bridge. This allows a complete production system to be transported in a purpose-built rack case, providing a console stand, meter bridge shipping storage and two 8RU racks for Tempest Engines and Network I/O.

“The complexities involved in today’s major sports and entertainment events means our OB partners still require broadcast consoles with a high specification, yet be robust and easy to transport,” said Tom Knowles, SSL broadcast product manager. “The S500m brings the portability and added flexibility our clients need for a multitude of broadcast environments, making it the ideal choice as a flypack or transportable OB option.”
