Solid State Logic has announced the Tempest Control App (TCA), a virtualised control solution developed to support the next generation of live-to-air broadcast production.

Solid State Logic Tempest Control AppVirtualised control – the use of software control interfaces – is key to the development of remote and distributed broadcast production models. Solid State Logic’s TCA opens the door to an array of new system design possibilities, offering broadcasters significant production and operational advantages, as well as economic efficiencies.

TCA is a fully featured interface that gives operators control over every aspect of System T’s mixing, routing, processing and monitoring from as little as a touchscreen. TCA directly controls System T’s DSP and is compatible with all new and existing Tempest Engines, including virtualised cloud-based processing.

Additional hardware control can be easily integrated with TCA when needed. For instance, operator positions requiring fader tile(s) can be incorporated into furniture for studio installations or deployed in flypacks for remote applications. TCA can also provide a robust and cost-effective solution for backup systems and compact or second-operator positions.

Claiming ‘market-leading production agility’, any combination of System T hardware and software control interfaces can be used across the entire system. All System T control interfaces offer a unified operator experience, increasing familiarity, efficiency and removing the need for training time when moving between systems.

TCA can be run on a local PC, a virtual machine on a shared server, or in the cloud. In such scenarios, there is no compromise in operation, whether TCA is deployed in centralised or decentralised production models, controlling hardware or virtualised processing.
