and other points of user access, which the company claims will help create multimedia radio experiences to grow and interact with audiences. These can be accessed on TV, via internet streaming, on RadioVIS, using DAB streams, on-demand and as slideshows.

Among the tools on display is

Pluxbox Radio manager which enables programme makers and presenters to create visual slideshows for digital radio through DAB+ and RadioVIS. Controllable at the push of a button, these are effectively apps for weather, amber alerts, traffic information and so on made with HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. With the ability to contain dynamic data and be automatically generated in real time, Pluxbox said they allow the presenter to develop a rich interactive relationship with the listeners.

Prism Sound’s Multichannel audio interfaces Titan and Atlas, produced are making


their European debut at IBC. Via a USB interface Titan and Atlas offer analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows at sample rates up to 192kHz. In addition, both units feature the new MDIO interface expansion slot, which can be used to expand its connectivity, for example by adding a direct connection to Pro Tools HDX systems.

Titan has four microphone inputs, while Atlas has eight and is aimed at multitrack recording applications. Each offers eight analogue output channels, up to 10 digital output channels and stereo headphone outputs, to play 20 different channels.

When? 11–16 September

For low-latency fold back or monitoring to headphones or main outputs, each output pair can optionally be driven from the built-in DSP mixer with an individual local mix of any selection of inputs through the supplied controller applet. Both Atlas and Titan are designed with Prism Sound’s latest CleverClox clocking technology, designed to remove jitter from any reference sync source before it is used as a conversion timebase. Prism Sound shall showcase the latest upgrade to the SADiE 6 audio recorder and editor software.

The new version of SADiE 6 now caters for engineers who want to work with Broadcast WAV (BWF) files, which incorporate ISRC data. An ISRC in BWF feature is included in SADiE’s WAV Master option and is in the SADIE version 6.1 update as part of the Mastering Suite and Sound Suite packs.

SADiE also features enhanced video support for BlackMagic Design Decklink cards, as well as timecode support on SADiE native systems, where the ASIO audio hardware used supports timecode functionality. RTW’s standard-format DAW plug-in is the first in a new monitoring product line, initially in VST 2.4 format for Windows and RTAS for Mac OS. Full VST, RTAS and native AAX64 support on both platforms will follow.

Each RTW Loudness Tools Masterclass PlugIn visually depicts audio with all relevant level and loudness values as specified by international standards. It conforms to the EBU R128 loudness standard, as well as SPL, ITU-R BS.1770- 3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, ARIB, and custom (to set OP-59, AGCOM). The company said it provides essential loudness metering without strangling the normal audio processing capability of the workstation. The instruments provide graphical/numerical, as well as bargraph views, and can be freely rearranged and scaled. Various function parameters, such as integration time, operational range and tolerance, along with a number of viewing options for metering data and

scales, offer extra flexibility. RTW said the plug-in was also a handy tool for quality control, offering the precision and ease of use required to ensure compliance with custom specifications. Operation of the plug-in is highly intuitive, claimed the company, stating that even users without a great deal of experience in monitoring loudness can use it effectively. New features for MADI- Bridge, the MADI to Dante IP audio network interface, have been released. They include bidirectional 44.1kHAz/48kHz/ 88.2kHz/96kHz sample rate conversion and a new split mode.

Part of SSL’s new Network I/O Range, MADI-Bridge is the industry’s first fully broadcast- ready interface between MADI and Dante, according to the company.

With 64 channels per Bridge at 48kHz, or 32 channels at 96kHz, as well as redundant MADI, IP network ports and PSU, SSL said the Bridge is built for uninterrupted, fully- redundant operation. In addition to the built-in clock redundancy in Dante controller, the MADI-Bridge includes a pair of sync inputs for use as a self-redundant Dante Grand Master clock. The unit can synchronise to video sync, tri-level or black and burst, word clock, MADI or PTP Network sync.

MADI-Bridge also features a front panel headphone socket with rotary level control, as well as built-in headphone monitor routing. The company said the bridge could replace traditional patch bay routing and fault-finding functionality with equivalents in the IP audio domain. GPIO connections allow for transfer of tally info and switching functions across the network with the audio. New PLUS versions of the SSL C100 and C10 broadcast consoles are being showcased for the European market, accompanied by a bundle of Production Assistant software. The new C100 HD PLUS large-format console is designed to offer a complete production solution for news and sports in a single, standard, high-power configuration.
