Studer has upgraded the DSP backbone of its entire Vista range of consoles with the introduction of the SCore Live DSP platform. Shown for the first time at IBC, the SCore Live system occupies six rackspaces, provides up to 10 DSP card slots and can also hold up to 12 I/O cards of various formats and additional GPIO.
SCore Live is user-configurable for maximizing the use of DSP in different applications. In contrast to fixed configuration DSP platforms, the SCore Live user can specify and purchase the optimum amount of DSP for current needs without compromising future production requirements.
"Advances in technology, coupled with Studer’s continual innovation, means we can bring down the price of higher-powered console systems, yet still increase the performance levels," says Stefan Ledergerber, product manager for Studer’s Vista Series.
Studer's System Configuration Editor software, available as an option, allows the client to take the factory-defined settings and make adjustments on a job-by-job basis, including changing the number of input channels, buses and outputs. The console's signal-flow capabilities may also be changed, depending on the intended application.
A new facility in the DSP allows for adding delays of up to 10 seconds to signals in order to compensate for video delays through satellite links, and more.
Customers who own existing Studer Vista Series consoles will be able to upgrade to the new SCore Live.
Studer will exhibit at this week’s 2006 AES show in San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center (October 6, 7 and 8) in Harman Pro Group booth #801/Demo Room 250.
