Solid State Logic (SSL) has announced the release of the new S300-48 fixed layout 48+1 fader compact control surface designed to integrate with larger System T installations or in stand-alone configurations for smaller broadcast facilities and OB vehicles.
The S300-48 can be combined with the portfolio of SSL’s System T consoles, remote tiles and screen interfaces, Tempest Processing Engines, and network I/O options. It provides a larger fader count and multi operator usage in the System T S300 form factor. Channel metering directly above each fader provides direct monitoring and control of signals on the current surface layers, with an overview supplying metering of console wide signals.
System T’s modular approach allows all surface variants to utilize the same software, providing added flexibility and interoperability across the entire range. This includes access to all features including full AoIP routing from the console, DAW control, immersive audio, Dynamic Automation, Access Control, Event Manager, Scene Automation and an onboard Effects Rack.
AoIP functionality is further enhanced with Dante and DDM support directly in the console software. All System T and Network I/O devices simultaneously support Dante, ST 2110, ST 2022-7, ST 2059-2, PTPv2 and PTPv1. AoIP routing is available from the console software with immediate discovery of stageboxes and the ability to resource share directly from the console, leveraging the benefits of a dynamic IP infrastructure.
SSL broadcast product manager Tom Knowles states, “The S300-48 surface provides real versatility for a modern broadcaster or production facility, where flexibility, proven resilience and price are all concerns. With the recent recognition of our broadcast technology with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation, the S300-48 highlights our ongoing commitment to the broadcast community and enhance the System T production platform.”
