Skokie, IL (May 7, 2012)—Studio Technologies has introduced a firmware upgrade for its StudioComm 76D/77 and 76DA/77 surround monitoring.
The upgrade adds bass-management capability and allows downmix configuration for support of international applications.
The 76D/77 and 76DA/77 surround monitoring systems, with digital inputs and outputs (the 76DA also offers analog outputs), enable monitoring of 5.1 surround sound and stereo audio material. Comprised of a 76D or 76DA central controller and a 77 Control console, the system is targeted for recording, post-production and broadcast applications where digital-input ready (or analog with the 76DA) loudspeakers are utilized.
All inputs are AES3id-compatible (unbalanced, 75 ohms), with outputs software-selectable for compatibility with AES3 (balanced, 110 ohms) or AES3id (unbalanced, 75 ohms). The system provides a configurable multichannel audio delay, allowing up to 340 milliseconds of digital delay to compensate for processing latency in an associated video path.
