‘TCA is a robust and highly scalable control solution for key broadcast audio applications’
The Netherlands - Solid State Logic is set to launch the Tempest Control App at IBC 2023 (stand 8.B81). Delivering full control of the System T production platform from a software application, Tempest Control App presents the next step in virtualised control solutions for live-to-air broadcast audio, says SSL.
Delivering full control of all mix, routing, monitoring, setup and automation functions, including the entire suite of next-gen immersive production tools, Solid State Logic’s new Tempest Control App (TCA) brings to the market ‘an unprecedented level of production flexibility and operational adaptability for broadcasters of all sizes’.
TCA is a robust and highly scalable control solution for key broadcast audio applications including remote production, newsroom production, backup scenarios or anywhere a physical control surface is not required. TCA utilises the same easy-to-use graphical user interface as found across the entire System T range, providing operators with a familiar experience no matter what System T control interface they are using.
TCA allows broadcasters to deploy ultra-lightweight, high power flypack systems, consisting of only a 1U TE1 Tempest DSP Engine, PC or laptop running the TCA software, and I/O, providing up to 256 paths of on-site low-latency audio processing.
If a remote workflow is required, a TCA system can be controlled remotely from a studio location via another control interface.
TCA seamlessly integrates with automated newsroom production platforms, including EVS, Grass Valley, Ross, Sony and Viz. Key features including channel and bus fader levels and PFL state can be controlled from the newsroom automation, with local control simultaneously available to an operator.
Solid state Logic, along with Audiotonix sister company, Calrec, have developed a cloud-based processing platform which over the past 12 months has been utilised on a number of successful proof of concept events with broadcast partners. TCA will provide a software-based control solution that can run ‘locally’ alongside the cloud-based audio processing.
