The SSL Broadcast Demo Truck Is Heading Your Way

From January through March 2018 the SSL Demonstration Vehicle will be heading west from Texas and up the west coast. The truck has recently been fitted with a new ‘Tempest Control Rack’ based System T broadcast audio production installation.

System T is a state of the art broadcast audio production solution. It offers a selection of processors, control interfaces, and I/O in a fully networked infrastructure. System elements can be scaled and specified in different combinations to suit a wide range of applications.

The introduction of the Tempest Control Rack makes it possible to specify a powerful audio production system that does not include a traditional audio console. The combination of the Tempest Control Rack, a System T Processor Engine and SSL Network I/O delivers a system that is ideally suited to Production Automation driven facilities. System T is compatible with Ross, Grass Valley, Sony and Mosart Production Automation. TCR can also be configured as a fully flight cased ‘Flypack’ for remote audio production.

The Tempest Control Rack (TCR) is a 3 RU enclosure with an optional retractable 15.6” touchscreen. TCR runs the complete System T control software so acts as a stand-alone control interface for a System T installation. It can be used rack mounted or in studio furniture and offers a complete set of connectivity options for network integration.

Additional Screen interfaces or Fader Tiles can be connected to a TCR unit to provide extended control. The System T software allows control over the entire console environment including routing, system configuration, audio processing and mixing. System T Fader Tiles can be furniture mounted or desktop units.

System T I/O is connected via a Dante or AES 67 network. A huge range of third party I/O devices can be used alongside SSL's own Network I/O interfaces. SSL Network I/O provides a complete range of devices offering mic/line analogue, MADI, AES and SDI embed/de-embed capability wherever it is required. System T Control Interfaces and SSL Dante Control Software offer remote control over SSL mic/line I/O across the network.

The truck is touring North America, visiting educators and partners and offering exclusive demonstrations to customers. You can see a full tour schedule here:.
