Studer has expanded the integration of its Ember protocol into the Vista and OnAir mixing console lines.

Ember SchematicThe Ember protocol provides seamless integration of both series’ of consoles with third-party broadcast control systems and newsroom production automation systems – enabling broadcasters to add and expand newscasting without adding overheads in newsroom operations. It also improves workflow and newsgathering ability while retaining the ability to go to manual override for breaking news.

‘Supporting the networking and routing needs of broadcasters is nothing new for us at Studer,’ says Katy Templeman-Holmes, Marketing Manager for Studer in the US. ‘Some of the world’s largest broadcasters have trusted Studer for over a decade to manage the integrity of their network operations with the Route 3000, Route 6000, Pro-Bel and now we will further support broadcasters’ needs with the integration of Ember.’

Ember is a control protocol implementation that allows many audio console settings to be controlled over TCP/IP, in addition to the Pro-Bel SW-P-08 protocol that is supported already. An additional feature is Ember’s ability to support multi-connection set-ups, addressing installations requiring redundancy.

Ember connectivity allows the external equipment to transfer signal labels, and to control input channel gains, solo, mutes, plus AUX send levels and mutes, along with N-X (mix-minus) bus levels and mutes. Master channel levels and mutes can also be addressed along with Group and Aux master channels.

Ember control is available across the range of Studer consoles, including the new compact OnAir 1500 console, so it can be used from large-scale public broadcast situations to small local stations according to budget.
