Solid State Logic will use this year’s NAB show to launch their new S500m console. As the latest surface addition to the System T range, the S500m 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 that is over 25% lighter, specifically designed for OB and flypack applications where weight and portability are key concerns. The S500m’s unique modular functionality also lets a console be deployed with or without an extended meter bridge. This allows a complete production system to be easily be transport 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” comments 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”.
