The combination of the Tempest Control Rack (TCR), 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 EVS Cerebrum, Grass Valley Ignite, Kahuna, Ross Overdrive, Sony ELC and Viz Mosart production automation systems. In the example system shown here we have the main System T Engine located in a Machine Room accompanied by a Tempest Control Rack. Network I/O units in the Machine Room provide baseband audio interconnection as required. In the Production Gallery, console software control is provided via a Touchscreen and Fader Tile which are connected via video and USB extension to the Tempest Control Rack. There is Control Room I/O for monitoring. SSL Network I/O units can be placed on the studio floor or anywhere in the facility to provide I/O where required.
The combination of the Tempest Control Rack (TCR) and Tempest Engine creates a broadcast audio production system with all of the features and power of a traditional broadcast console in just 4RU (TE1) or 5RU (TE2). The System T ‘Flypack’ is an ideal solution to the challenges of remote broadcast audio production for sports and large scale events.
The Flypack contains a combination of the Tempest Control Rack, a System T processor Engine and SSL Network I/O to deliver a system that is extremely versatile and ideally suited to deployment as a portable flight cased solution. Remote production can take many forms, whether discrete audio channels back to the Broadcast facility, a skeleton crew mixing parts of the show from temporary onsite locations or remotely controlled processing and I/O configured and controlled via backhaul links to a broadcast centre. System T’s modular design and use of standard networking technology allows all these options. A TCR can be remotely controlled from other consoles or PC software. Discrete audio or premixed feeds can be supplied to video backhaul or codecs via ST 2110-30, AES67, Dante or any audio format using SSL’s Network I/O range.
