OUR PART # MODEL-76DA/77-VERS-4
Surround monitoring system that includes two surround (5.1) and three stereo unbalanced digital inputs, two digital and one analog surround (5.1) monitor outputs, and two digital and one analog stereo monitor outputs. All inputs are AES3id compatible (unbalanced, 75 ohms); outputs are software-selectable for compatibility with AES3 (balanced, 110 ohms) or AES3id (unbalanced, 75 ohms). Highlights include configurable input-to-output delay for synchronizing audio with video displays. One Model 76DA Central Controller supports a combination of up to four Model 77 or Model 71 Control Consoles.
A new software release adds enhanced capabilities to the StudioComm 76D/77 and 76DA/77 systems. To support a broader range of loudspeaker systems an advanced set of bass management resources has been added. The bass management function redirects low-frequency energy from the main channels, combines it with the LFE content, then routes the sum to the subwoofer output. The downmix capability of the 76D/77 and 76DA/77 has also been enhanced with the addition of configurable level coefficients.
Sophisticated and sonically excellent bass management capability has been added to these two StudioComm systems. If warranted by an installation, bass management can be enabled for either or both the surround (5.1) and stereo monitor outputs. For flexibility, the slope of the low-pass and high-pass filters can be independently selected for either 12- or 24-dB-per-octave. The filters, implemented in the digital domain, were carefully designed to maintain the maximum possible audio quality. A new setting allows the level of the LFE input to be configured for 0 or 10 dB of gain. This ensures that the relative levels of the main and LFE channels will be correctly maintained.
New configuration parameters allow the downmix performance to be adjusted as desired. This enables compatibility with a range of broadcast applications, including those that follow the ARIB standards for downmix coefficients.
The new software will become standard on all new-production StudioComm 76D/77 and 76DA/77 systems. Units already in the field can be upgraded at the factory. Contact Studio Technologies' technical support for details.
The all-digital StudioComm 76DA/77 Surround Monitoring System with digital inputs and digital and analog outputs enables simple and effective monitoring of 5.1 surround and stereo audio material. Comprised of a Model 76DA Central Controller and a Model 77 Control Console, this system is ideal for recording, post production, and broadcasting applications with digital-input loudspeakers.
