SAS said it will display three Rubicon broadcast console control surfaces to meet a range of applications.
They are the Rubicon, for major-market and intensive applications; Rubicon-SL, for less demanding on-air or production studios; and the new Rubi-T Mini Broadcast Console.
The Rubi-T is 6 inches high and can accommodate any number of input modules, monitor modules and talkback modules. It’s intended for news booths, edit booths, voice booths, voice tracking and as a mini secondary effects mixer in on-air studios. Features include 100mm P&G fader, channel ON/OFF, and four programmable buttons that can be source select, bus assignment, cue or talkback.
Rubicon models interface directly to the SAS 32KD Digital Router/Mixer, which is expandable up to thousands of channels, or to the new RIOGrande stand-alone 32×32 Router/Mixer.
The new RIOGrande is described as a full-featured 32×32 router/mixer with both analog and digital I/O. The user can connect a Rubicon, Rubicon-SL or Rubi-T Console Control Surface for a complete studio system. “Add a second RIOGrande to expand to a 64×64 system that can accommodate multiple consoles,” the company stated. “Then, when you’re ready to expand to a full 32KD-based installation, the RIOGrande converts to the RIOLink Remote I/O Interface to concentrate all studio I/O into a single CAT-5 cable interconnect to TOC.”
SAS will also show its range of studio turret modules and intercom stations.
