SSL Update System T to V3.1, launch Tempest TE1 and TE2
Posted on: Friday 3rd of September 2021
SSL’s latest System T broadcast platform update brings support for its next-generation TE1 and TE2 Tempest audio engines, which are due to be available by the time you read this. The new engines and software provide a flexible model for managing production capacity, allowing users to expand their capabilities with the addition of new software ‘processing’ licenses. This means users can increase their processing and path capacity for user-defined project periods, such as large one-off sporting or entertainment events.
System T includes the automatic discovery of Dante devices and AES67/ST 2110 streams via SAP, audio patching is presented via a GUI, with full mono routing capabilities. V3.1 includes improvements for managing AoIP networks, and additional access control entries for enhanced security of IO and console features. It also provides control for Focusrite’s Dante-enabled RedNet MP8R Mic I/O directly from System T consoles with parameters stored and recalled with scenes and showfiles. Additional features include the new ‘Send Stems’ mode, allowing standard subgroup (on/off) type stems to be switched to a bus with a send level, useful for efficient effect return signals or discrete feeds to outputs that require an independent mix. The ‘Path Recall Safe’ feature is also extended to include individual path processing blocks, providing a quick and simple way from within the ‘Channel View’ to recall safe a particular path section when firing scenes.
