"Console Audio Mixers Review"
TV Technology May 24, 2004 Console & Audio Mixers Review May 24, 2004 – Harrison introduced the new MPC4-D film mix console that features TFT screens above all the faders displaying a waveform-envelope display. As audio is passed through the channel from source machines, the IKIS computer system generates a waveform for each input and stores it in synchronized memory. Harrison developed a number of new features for its Generation-3 TVDSL on-air broadcast console. Assigning talent or other sources to their respective mix minus feeds also assigns them to the Producer’s Bus. Talent faders, when down, feed this special mono bus that could then feed a listen key on the producer’s intercom or a separate loudspeaker. Level Dependent EQ allows two different curves to be applied separately to a problem sound source. The two EQ settings switch when a predetermined level threshold is reached. Super Looper provides 20 seconds of 40-bit digital audio recording to capture the sound from a person speaking into a microphone that can then be used to optimize the input channel. Finally, the Generation-3 TVDSL console features a satellite management system, called Party Line for setup of complex communications requirements during multiple satellite feeds.
