SSL C100 HDS V5 Update
Solid State Logic will showcase V5 software for the C100 HDS Digital Broadcast Console at the IBC 2012 (Stand 8.D83).
The new software is primarily focused on the implementation of Dual Operator Mode. This upgrade is particularly relevant to mobile installations when two operators are necessary to work on complex productions, but where space and weight are at a premium.
SSL’s Dual Operator Mode provides two operators the ability to have independent physical controls and access to shared audio assets, through a single console processing engine, Routing and I/O configuration. The system allows for an unlimited number of consecutive eight-channel fader bays to be assigned to a 2nd operator. These bays can be located at either end of a C100 console or separated and installed in a remote location such as a production gallery. The 2nd operator bays can be specified with a dedicated Master Tile to provide access to EQ, dynamics, aux sends and various routing functions, or specified without a Master Tile for fader-only operation.
Dual Operator Mode splits the C100 PFL system to provide independent PFL control for each operator with monitoring via headphones, or the main or mini monitor outputs. If both operators access the PFL system simultaneously and route to the monitor outputs, the PFL system delivers a sum of all selected channels. V5 also introduces a new momentary ‘non-latching’ PFL mode to facilitate shared use of monitor outputs.
Each operator will also have independent access to user layers to facilitate selection of individual channels to be laid out in each operator’s area and individual channels that are a shared resource, allowing simultaneous control from both operator areas. A fully redundant C100 system will see both Operator areas as a single console, delivering redundancy for both users. For project recall for an entire Dual Operator system, all settings for both operators are also saved within a single project.
