TSL Demo New Features For Soundfield DSF Digital Broadcast At IBC2014

News Image
TSL Products is to showcase new models in the Soundfield DSF Digital Broadcast surround sound microphone range, incorporating new features including self-testing, alarming and correction capabilities, at IBC2014, Stand 10.B41.

A new function of the DSF-2 MKII digital surround and stereo microphone is a range of integrated system self-tests with alarming and correction. They include the monitoring of all supplies (including those for the microphone) and monitoring of microphone cable health, showing detected errors on the front panel display and the SoundField Remote App, while at the same time auto-correcting errors as necessary to allow the event or recording to continue.
The DSF-3 MKII digital surround processor now supports a new range of Object Based Audio formats, in addition to Stereo and 5.1. These new formats include height information – 5.1 + 2, 5.1 + 4 and 7.1 + 2. The new front panel design is based around two LCD displays, with a lock-out function to avoid accidental changes.
The DSF-B MKII system – encompassing the DSF-2 MKII microphone and DSF-3 MKII processor – performs B-Format reversal detection and auto-correction when connected. When a reversal between the two AES links is detected, this will be displayed and auto-corrected.
Both the DSF-2 MKII digital surround and stereo microphone system and the DSF-3 MKII digital surround processor are now fully integrated into the SoundField Remote App, providing a single piece of software for control and firmware updates and access to all the control units functionality such as mic-pre gain, Limiter On/Off, HPF, Stereo Polar and Stereo Width.
The new models offer both Ethernet and USB connectivity to interface with the SoundField Remote App as well as a new front panel design based around an LCD display. The DSF-2 MKII features new low noise mic-pre design with 1dB gain steps and new low-jitter clock circuitry for improved audio performance, as well as auto-ranging power supplies which reduce power consumption.
Pieter Schillebeeckx, Product Manager, SoundField, said: "Whether recording in an intimate concert venue or a stadium, sound engineers need to know that the audio quality is the best it can be. The ability to self test for anomalies or issues and correct them instantaneously is an important new feature for the Soundfield range."
TSL Products are also launching the DSF-1 MKII which is aimed at music recording. The DSF-1/2/3 MKII will be available for demonstration on Stand 10.B41 at IBC 2014.
