XFORD, UK — Solid State Logic ( is showing V.4 software for its C10 HD compact broadcast console at the 2013 NAB Show, which introduces a range of features and options that expands the capability of the C10. The console offers the power and features of a larger console but for less cost and in a smaller footprint. Highlights of the V.4 upgrade include Function Key Macros, a feature that reduces the number of physical actions required to achieve specific tasks. The C10's routing allows operators to use a versatile source and destination group-based approach with operation from the control surface, rather than a separate computer. HyperRoute introduces an additional destination-based routing structure, which has the benefit of displaying destination source assignments without having to renavigate through paths. A new Control Surface Screen Saver extends the operational life of the control surface by switching off all of the OLED displays and screens when not in use. The maximum channel count available for C10 has been increased to 160 channels. The V.4 upgrade also introduces optional new Wide Range 2 Band Filters, which add high and low pass filters to the channel signal path.
