Solid State Logic Present Latest Workflow Advancements To System T
At IBC 2022, SSL will showcase broadcast audio workflows for immersive and remote production, as well as new TE1 & TE2 DSP engines with scalable DSP licensing.
Solid State Logic (SSL) will present the latest workflow advancements to System T for on-premise and remote audio production for news, sports and live production. In addition, SSL will also be showcasing a range of production tools for content creation, post and audio production, featuring advanced DAW integration and control — including UF8, UC1, the new THE BUS+ analogue processor and essential SSL studio, BiG SiX.
Scalable ‘pay-as-you-go’ licensing
The latest TE1 & TE2 Tempest Engines featuring scalable Pay-As-You-Go DSP licensing, offering a wider variety of channel path capacities that align with a broader range of applications and budgets. Software licenses for five different processing packs are available, defined by the total number of mono All-Paths equivalent channels supported, from 85 to 800, are available to users as perpetual or short-term, time-based rental upgrades.
Remote production and beyond
With increasing demand for distributed and decentralised collaborative workflows, System T’s architecture provides an agile production platform that can be managed from home, the studio and the venue. Utilising patented virtualized processing techniques, SSL have now developed a technology Proof of Concept (PoC) that will provide the backbone for future cloud-based solutions offering even more flexibility for remote production.
Immersive and Next Generation Audio (NGA)
Supporting the demand for NGA within broadcast content, System T’s architecture provides processing for multiple audio formats for immersive and three-dimensional audio; channel-based, objects, Ambisonics and binaural. With support for multiple standards and formats including ATSC 3.0, Dolby Atmos, and MPEG-H. A Sennheiser AMBEO partnership 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.
Advanced Audio over IP
System T delivers the ultimate in IP flexibility, utilising Audinate’s Dante technology stack to provide Dante API managing audio routing of SSL Network I/O and over 3000 third party AoIP products directly in the console GUI, including automatic discovery. SSL AoIP devices enable transmitting and subscribing to ST 2110 or AES67 streams on the same Dante interface, opening up interoperability to many more devices including IP video systems.
With System T you can have the best of all IP worlds as the audio routing is performed directly on COTS network hardware, not proprietary TDM audio routing hardware.
