Solid State Logic have announced System T-S300, a new compact broadcast console that offers a combination of performance and value for a wide range of broadcast installations and OB vehicles. The new S300 is a fixed layout compact control surface that can be combined with the complete portfolio of SSL’s  System T network objects: Consoles, remote tiles, touchscreen interfaces, Tempest Processing Engines, remote PC software and Network I/O. It can be specified as part of a larger System T installation or in stand-alone configurations for smaller broadcast facilities or OB vehicles. S300 will be on display at IBC, Hall 8, Stand D83.

S300 comes in 2 versions: 16+1 faders and 32+1 faders. S300 can connect to either a Tempest T25 (256 paths @ 48kHz) or a T80 (800 paths @ 48kHz) Processor Engine and runs the same software as the larger S500 surface and TCR (Tempest Control Rack).

System T S300 includes a fully integrated Dante control API, providing arbitrated audio and control resource sharing for SSL’s Network I/O range across SSL’s Tempest platform based consoles; S500, S300, TCR and SSL Live (L500 Plus, L300 and L200). With the availability of over a 1000 Dante devices, from upwards of 350 manufacturers, System T control surfaces are a direct routing controller to extremely large, multi-manufacturer based AoIP routing systems. No additional software or hardware is required and routing control is directly from the console GUI or software instances of the console control software (T-SOLSA) running on standard PCs remotely connected to the main surface. System T’s underlying software and network infrastructure provide a standard-agnostic platform that can easily be updated to include emerging broadcast and media IP standards as they are ratified and complement broadcasters’ workflows. Complete showfile compatibility between all System T consoles and controllers means production can easily move between control rooms within a facility, or an S300 can very easily be used as a backup surface to a larger S500. Where processing engines are of different sizes SSL’s unique compatibility mode allows the pre selection of channel, busses and effects resources that will be inactive on the smaller processing engine. Settings from the larger device are never lost and resources can be reassigned at any point during the show, even with audio passing. www.solidstatelogic.com

Lawo debuts their new Ruby Radio Console at IBC Amsterdam (Stand 8.B50).  “In today’s radio studios, talent is glued to their computer screens,” says Stephan Türkay, Lawo’s Senior Product Manager, Radio OnAir. “More recently, touchscreen smartphones and tablets have become an essential part of daily life. We at Lawo saw touchscreens as another opportunity to revolutionize radio.”

Ruby is designed to match modern radio operations, enabling talent to mix and route audio using the same touchscreen environment used by other studio tools. Alongside familiar physical faders and switches, a customizable display with context-sensitive multi-touch UI allows stations to add controls for other studio applications – such as playout systems, phone queues and codecs – streamlining workflows and making the ruby display a true operational hub for all studio devices.

“We provide a wide range of preconfigured screens, or clients can craft their own custom screens with our sophisticated GUI builder.” The result is a more natural and efficient way of working, with an additional huge benefit: reduced studio monitor clutter. Ruby is a true AES67 radio console with RAVENNA AoIP built-in. Full dual-network redundancy, with instantaneous recovery from any network fault, makes it the perfect console for stations who require uninterrupted uptime. AES67 and high-density MADI interfaces are both standard, and eight expansion slots permit addition of mic, line, AES3 and studio I/O, making ruby the perfect console for stations who want to migrate to AoIP without sacrificing legacy infrastructure. Ruby will begin shipping in October, 2017. It is available in configurations from 4 to 60 faders, with a variety of desktop or flush-mount frame styles.

German-based pro audio specialist DirectOut unveils their first Dante device at IBC 2017. Joining a product line focused on MADI, DirectOut started to open up future connectivity standards as an early adopter of RAVENNA. A second network audio format, Waves Soundgrid, was added to the portfolio in 2016. Now, IBC 2017 sees the release of the EXBOX.MD, a small yet powerful Dante to MADI converter box.
The concept is simple: take any MADI format (coaxial BNC, optical SC or SFP) and convert all 64 channels to Dante and vice-versa. The device can be powered by up to two external power-supplies as well as PoE (Power over Ethernet). Four network ports are connected to an internal switch and give the opportunity to use Dante’s redundancy mode, while more EXBOX.MDs or other Dante devices can be connected directly to increase the number of channels. The handy size of the popular EXBOX series (1/3 of 19’’), combined with the rock-solid housing and redundant power supplies, makes the EXBOX.MD a perfect connectivity tool for touring live shows, OB vans as well as studio applications. The EXBOX.MD will be on show at IBC 2017 in Hall 8, Booth E.85. www.directout.eu
