OXFORD, ENGLAND – At ProLight+Sound 2017 (Hall 3.1 Stand F11) Solid State Logic is extremely proud to announce new products and developments that clearly demonstrate a market leading fully networked console strategy for live and broadcast applications.

SSL’s Network I/O range offers high specification interfaces that use Dante technology and AES67 transport to connect to AoIP network systems. The range includes mic/line, MADI, AES, and SDI interfaces. The addition of the new Network I/O SB 32.24 Stagebox brings a high capacity on-stage I/O unit to the range. New software releases for SSL live and broadcast consoles introduce shared control over all SSL Network I/O Stageboxes with full gain compensation to facilitate elegant integration of broadcast and live console technology within a single installation. At PL+S 2017 SSL is also announcing the BLII-Dante HC Bridge, a 1U unit that provides a bi-directional bridge between SSL’s proprietary ‘Blacklight II’ high bandwidth optical format and a single Dante HC connection, delivering 256 channels of ultra-low latency 96kHz (512 channels @ 48kHz) audio in and out of a Dante network for SSL Live consoles. SSL’s System T broadcast consoles already offer up to 3072 input and output connections to a Dante network via up to six Dante HC cards per Tempest engine delivering 512 channels of I/O per card at 48kHz.

SSL Network I/O Stageboxes offer SSL’s renowned SuperAnalogueTM preamp design with its superior audio performance available for a wide range of Dante network applications. The Network I/O SB 32.24 is a 5U fully ruggedised enclosure featuring dual redundant power supplies, 32 mic/line inputs, 16 analogue line outputs and 8 digital inputs and outputs on 4 AES3 input/output pairs. It has a pair of redundant RJ45 Dante network connections in addition to a user configurable SFP port that can be fitted with RJ45 or optical connectors. The SB 32.24 has on-board gain-compensated Dante “split” capability. All network connections can be used for network extension or for connection to a second independent Dante network. It has individual signal present, clip and phantom power LED’s as well as global indication of PSU, Network A and B and Hardware status. SB32.24 can operate at 96kHz or 48kHz sample rates.

The Network I/O SB 32.24 will be available from May 2017.
The Network I/O BL II-Dante Bridge will be available from Q4 2017.
