Solid State Logic has released v5 software for its C100 HDS Digital Broadcast Console at the 2012 NAB Show.

SSL C100 HDSFollowing the release of v4 at 2011’s show, this update brings a range of features to enable Dual Operator Mode for the specialised broadcast console. While the development reflects feedback from a range of SSL clients, the upgrade is particularly relevant to mobile installations where complex productions demand two operators but space and weight are at a premium.

‘As the broadcast industry encounters more complex production situations involving multiple mixes, our team has developed software for the C100 HDS to meet the needs of two mix engineers at the same time,’ says SSL CEO, Piers Plaskitt. ‘V5 allows our most powerful digital console to be installed in a space and weight conscious OB van, for example, to easily handle a live international sporting event presented in different languages, therefore requiring different simultaneous mixes.

‘We believe the v5 software upgrade will further solidify the C100’s impact on the market.’

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 second 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 second 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 simple 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 also has 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 seamless redundancy for both users. For streamlined project recall for an entire Dual Operator system, all settings for both operators are also saved within a single project.
