Solid State Logic launches System T Cloud virtualized mixing solution for broadcast audio

Solid State Logic has announced the launch of System T Cloud. It’s a new virtualized audio mixing solution for live-to-air broadcasts.

Comprehensive broadcast audio solution

Solid State Logic is renowned for its hardware-based System T dedicated broadcast audio production systems. The company says that System T Cloud will deliver the same premium audio quality, feature set and interface that System T hardware users are used to. However, as it is cloud-based, System T Cloud offers unprecedented flexibility and scalability. You can also seamlessly manage live productions from multiple venues remotely via the cloud.

Virtualized processing

Solid State Logic says that cloud-based, or ‘virtualized’ audio processing, is the next significant step forward in production technology. It can also deliver substantial benefits to broadcasters and service providers. As the audio processing is done in the cloud, you don’t need as much physical hardware on-site. In addition, you can manage multiple live events across different geographical locations from a single control room. This reduces travel costs and lowers the carbon footprint of production operations which is an important consideration.

Cloud production for large-scale broadcast

According to Solid State Logic, the System T Cloud offers truly flexible capabilities with virtualized processing, control and audio routing. It also provides up to 256 processing paths, supporting stereo, 5.1 and immersive formats. All of these can be controlled via hardware or software interfaces remotely from any location. In addition, the Virtual Tempest Engine offers 256×256 inputs and outputs, with a fully integrated Dante Connect implementation. Dante is a network platform focusing on AV connectivity that’s easy to use.

What we think

Solid State Logic’s System T hardware is used by broadcasters around the world, as well as organizations such as NASA. However, the move to a virtualized system will streamline the broadcast production process as well as reduce costs. Solid State Logic says it has been working with broadcasters for the past two years to develop the System T Cloud. The company has also run a series of proof-of-concept events, including live-to-air productions as part of the development process. As such it seems that System T Cloud is ready to roll out and could revolutionize the broadcast audio market.


Solid State Logic will be debuting System T Cloud at NAB 2024.
