Studer OnAir Consoles Add I/O Sharing To List Of Capabilities
March 09, 2009
REGENSDORF, Switzerland – Studer OnAir consoles are now equipped with STUDER RELINK (Resource Linking) - Studer’s new scalable and flexible audio resource sharing system.
Already capable of a multitude of on-air and production functions, the new V3.1 release of software for the Studer OnAir 3000 and 2500 digital consoles adds the highly-requested ability to share inputs and outputs plus control over a network of Studer consoles.
Unlike some other systems, this facility is not restricted to one type of mixer, but can operate between OnAir 3000, OnAir 2500, Vista 5, Vista 6, Vista 7, and Vista 8 consoles, with the added advantage of being able to centralize all the audio through the Studer Route 6000 audio routing system. Audio interconnects can use MADI, AES, ADAT, analog or even HDLink topologies, using Studer’s D21m I/O system. No additional hardware is required to complete a simple one-step I/O sharing system, as control is passed over TCP/IP between consoles. Mic take-over is seamless and resilient, ideal for live transmission switchover. Red Light, Fader start and Monitor Cut functions can all be passed to the remote controlling console.
Using the new software, part of Studer’s new RELINK system, consoles may use inputs or outputs from any other console in a connected network, and control and process those signals as though they were directly connected to the desk.
The Studer OnAir 3000 and 2500 also benefit from tightly integrated control of Studer’s Call Management System (CMS) to allow easy DJ, Producer, Reporter and Assistant control and administration of phone-in lines, whether they are public or remote reporter inputs.
Existing customers can easily upgrade by contacting their local Studer Distributor.
