On the heels of its Tempest Control App, Solid State Logic has launched the System T S400 console, promising ‘flagship control for live-to-air broadcast applications in a compact and cost-effective format’.

System T S400 is the latest control surface for SSL’s System T next-gen IP-native broadcast production platform. Available in standalone frames of 16+1, 32+1 or 48+1 fader versions, it sits between the compact, fixed-frame S300 and flagship, modular S500. The S400 uses the same premium 100mm touch-sense faders and dedicated OLED display per fader as the S500. Level metering and status LEDs – covering dynamics, automix and external control – are also present by every fader to further enhance visual feedback for operators. In addition to live-to-air studio production, the S400 is aimed at control OB, event and music applications where space is a concern.

Solid State Logic System T S400 console‘The S400 highlights how important user feedback is in our product development,’ says SSL Broadcast Product Manager , Berny Carpenter. ‘By listening closely to the requirements of our customers, we have provided a console that delivers the highest levels of operational feedback, but in a compact form factor. With the ever-expanding range of control, processing and I/O options available for System T, we have a very diverse set of building blocks that allow our customers to build their perfect solution’

At the heart of the S400 is the same software and feature set found across the entire System T range, including a full immersive production tool kit, comprehensive studio-quality FX rack and market-leading integrated AoIP routing control. Accessed and controlled using multi-gesture touchscreens, all system configuration, routing and surface layout tasks can be carried out via simple, intuitive screen actions. To further enhance control and visual feedback, an additional screen can be added via HDMI output and mounted on an optional screen arm.

The Master Section features dedicated monitoring controls, a Focus Fader, and a set of assignable User Keys. Additionally, a five-inch touchscreen provides an FX rack meterviewer with inbuilt Loudness, True Peak and Phasescope metering, removing the need for external metering. With 21 physical user keys, the S400s slimline Master Section allows users to program control of the features most relevant for each production.

In addition, any of the new S400-16, 32 and 48 configurations can be combined with the full portfolio of System T consoles, control interfaces, Tempest Processing Engines and Network I/O options. Bespoke configurations can be specified as part of a larger System T installation, including as a remote surface for flypack or distributed cloud-based systems. Showfile compatibility across the entire range of System T control interfaces means productions can easily move between consoles and control rooms within a facility. System T’s Compatibility Mode allows seamless transition between different-sized consoles and Tempest DSP Engines. Settings from the larger device are never lost, and resources can be reassigned at any point during the show, even with audio passing through.
