Solid State Logic Provides Creative Tools for Sports-Broadcast Professionals
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Solid State Logic (SSL) as a corporate sponsor. Since 1969, the company has provided creative audio tools for broadcast, music, live-production, and postproduction professionals. In that time, SSL has built a reputation for superior audio quality, powerful and flexible technologies, and a global commitment to customer support and service.
Leading national and international broadcasters have embraced its innovative products to streamline operations and ensure high-quality output in environments where sonic purity cannot be compromised but high workloads and immovable deadlines are the norm.
SSL recently provided the core audio-production tools for SNY’s new facility in Lower Manhattan. Include were two main control rooms, each with 48-fader System T consoles and a large array of network I/O. Other SSL clients include PGA TOUR Entertainment, MSG, NESN, Comcast New England, Comcast Chicago, Fox Sports FS1, Fox Sports Ohio, Portland Trailblazers, and NASCAR.
“SSL is already helping visionary broadcasters all over the world make the switch to more flexible, reliable, and cost-effective IP-based true networked infrastructures, with powerful, creative core technologies that will never compromise the content or the workflow,” says VP, Broadcast Sales, Steve Zaretsky. “We believe that SVG has an important role to play in helping the whole industry understand this revolution, welcoming in a future of standards-agnostic infrastructure where workflow is defined by the broadcaster and enabled by the technology.”
SSL’s latest technology is System T, a complete networked audio-production environment designed from the ground up to provide the power to handle large-scale broadcast productions in a multiplatform delivery-driven future — whether in a truck, a stadium, or a multiroom broadcast facility.
SSL System T has an entirely IP-based networked control and audio infrastructure and a highly configurable architecture that can adapt to a huge range of applications and operator requirements. All audio connectivity is via Dante and AES67 with direct routing control of more than 1,000 third-party devices directly from the console-software GUI. System T’s agile software and technology platform is capable of incorporating SMPTE 2110-30 audio transport and emerging NMOS IS-04 registration and discovery, when it’s ratified, enabling System T to manage audio routing for an even wider set of audio connections.
A single T80 Tempest Audio Engine can handle more than 3,000 inputs and 3,000 outputs and has a capacity of 800 fully processed audio paths. Control options range from large multi-operator consoles to flypack solutions like the new Tempest Control Rack (TCR) to single-fader panel or PC-based software control. The system is compatible with Ross Overdrive, Grass Valley Ignite, Sony ELC, and Vizrt Mosart production automation.
