Harrison Confirms Commitment To France At SATIS(October 02, 2001)
The distribution for Harrison consoles in France is now the collaborative effort between Studio Equipment of Switzerland (for sales and marketing) and Le Team, Paris, for installation and technical support. Both companies have considerable experience in the broadcast, studio and installation markets.
Unveiled at the NAB Show in April of 2001, TVD is Harrison¹s latest contribution to digital broadcast technology. The TVD features an extremely compact, ergonomically-designed main control surface which can be controlled from up to three additional locations using Harrison¹s Satellite Touchscreen technology. This advanced feature gives master control operators and video directors control of the entire audio platform when usual operators are not available.
Standard systems are supplied with 24 Mic/Line Input Channels, 18 Stereo Line Input Channels, 12 Mix/Minus feeds (24 capable), 16 Auxiliary Sends, 5.1 Input Channels, four Stereo Groups, and four Stereo & 5.1 Program busses. All signal processing is full 40-bit internal architecture with 24-bit A-D/D-A conversion (96kHz capable) provided by the proven technology of its digital.engine.
The result of extensive market research, the TVD is designed as a "task specific" on-air broadcast console. It owes its simplistic operation, in part, to the removal of confusing timecode automation controls that clutter other designs. For additional ease-of-use, system operators can enable/disable the console¹s processing elements - like EQ, dynamics and filters. Motorized, touch-sensitive faders and snap-shot recall of every console parameter also simplify daily, routine operations as well as the most demanding special events.
The standard control surface is 183 cm (72 inches) wide. A narrow fader pitch version will be available for OB van and space restricted environments.
A high-resolution LCD touchscreen accompanies the control surface. Besides displaying graphical data on EQ, dynamics and panning, the touchscreen is the principal GUI interface to the console¹s integrated system router (2240 x 2240 capable) and also provides redundant control of every surface function.
Other standard TVD console features include: 24 remotely-controlled microphone preamplifiers (each with 3 microphone inputs); continuous input metering and 8-character alphanumeric displays on all channels; 16 Auxiliary sends from each channel; 24 assignable high-resolution digital bargraph meters (each with 4-character alphanumeric display); a panel-mounted AFL/PFL speaker; 4-band parametric EQ; full dynamics; hi-pass/low-pass filters on each input channel and output buss; full stereo 5.1 panning; a GPIO interface, and 8 remote group faders. Optional equipment for the TVD includes redundant power supplies and satellite system touchscreens.
SATIS is the major audiovisual and multimedia exhibition for French-speaking Europe though visitors are to be found from many different parts of the continent.
Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Harrison designs, manufactures and supports professional audio mixing consoles for the film and video post-production as well as broadcast, live sound and music recording industries and continues to expand the capabilities of contemporary console architecture and design. Owner of primary patents for audio console technology, Harrison is committed to engineering innovation and excellence.
