Sierra Automated Systems will exhibit new developments for its Rubicon connected digital network including show control and shared automatic mix-minus features.
Show control saves and recalls console settings including source select for each module, bus assignments, pan/balance and send level.
The shared automatic mix-minus feature allows a pool of mix-minus devices such as ISDNs, codecs or four-way lines, to be shared by any console in the system. If a console is using a shared mix-minus device and another console accesses that device, it will get the message “ISDN 1 in use by Studio B”; it can access the incoming audio, but not create a mix-minus.
If a device is not in use and a console accesses that device, it automatically creates a mix-minus to the device, typically a mix-minus of Program 1 when the module is on, and a mix-minus of “off-line” when the module is off.
Additional added Rubicon features include remote source select, which allows a pushbutton panel located anywhere in the system to change the selected source on a console module.
Also on display: the ICM32 control center for intercom, monitoring, IFB and talkback.
