Solid State Logic [Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C5636] announced that it will highlight advanced Audio over IP capabilities as well as recent feature developments within its System T broadcast audio platform at the NAB 2020 Show. New developments in the System T line — including Solid State Logic’s new HC Bridge SCR — deliver leading edge features for users pursuing advanced AoIP integrations or new Immersive/Next Generation Audio (NGO) workflow possibilities.

Advanced AoIP possibilities

SSL will showcase its expanding Dante-based IP Network I/O portfolio, which includes the HC Bridge SRC. The new network I/O device provides 256 bi-directional channels of sample rate conversion for AoIP networks and also facilitates connecting audio between devices running at different sample rates or in different clock domains on a Dante (48khz and 96khz), AES67 or ST 2110-30 networks. The two network connections can be physically or virtually separate networks, providing control isolation between two sets of equipment where an “AoIP discovery and control firewall” is required.

Immersive and Next Generation Audio (NGO)

Supporting the demand for NGO within broadcast content, the System T platform architecture provides processing for multiple audio formats for immersive and three-dimensional audio; channel-based, objects, Ambisonics and binaural. With support for multiple formats including ATSC 3.0, Dolby Atmos, and MPEG-H, the recent Sennheiser AMBEO partnership now adds on-board conversion support for the AMBEO VR Mic, with a 360 transcoder to render to a wide range of multi-channel outputs from 4.0 to 7.1.4.

Broadcast Console Surfaces

SSL will also demonstrate the latest feature update for their range of console control surfaces. The large-format configurable S500 and S500m surface, as well as pre-configured surface options in the S300 suited to mid-size production facilities, make these consoles flexible for many different applications and scale of broadcast production. Running a Dante AoIP backbone and compliant with AES67 / 2110 protocols, System T offers advanced integration capabilities into an existing or future AoIP infrastructure. Now with the addition of SSL’s latest V2.3 release, which includes advanced DAW control, Immersive audio, Dynamic Automation and fully-featured on board FX rack, System T is firmly staying at the forefront of broadcast production and AoIP technology.
