Harrison has introduced the ST2 post production mixing console at AES, which it says marks beginning of a new generation of Harrison consoles employing the latest in digital sound processing technology.

The ST2 digital film/post-production console is designed for feature film and other post production applications requiring a large scale digital console solution. Its wide variety of control surface options featuring PCI based IKIS Automation, touch sensitive control knobs, efficient two-toned color scheme, multi-operator platform options, input/output format options, and digital signal processing capacity, allows the user to customize the system for any specific application.

The feature set on this Harrison console includes innovations for audio mixing professionals, such as:

    Console "Profiles" can be set up in addition to the static layer controls

    functions according to need; future plug-ins include De-esser, Camera
    Noise Cleaner & Buss Limiter
