HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today announced new Studer by HARMAN Micro Series V2.0 software at the 2018 IBC Show.
The Studer Micro Series is a compact and flexible broadcast solution that is ideal for a variety of applications, including radio and TV broadcasts, production studios and ENG/DSNG. HARMAN Micro Series V2.0 software delivers powerful new features that improve the mixing workflow and user experience, including ducking, user access privileges, assignable FX, and 19 major improvements and bug fixes including the previously announced VoiceMix (auto mixing) functionality. In addition, with the 2.0 update Studer Micro has frequency compliance for the Japanese market.
“New Studer Micro Series V2.0 software adds essential new features and improvements to deliver even more powerful functionality for the Micro Series production system,” said Mark Hosking, Director, Sales Broadcast, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “Studer Micro Series V2.0 software streamlines and improves mixing workflows and provides the versatile capabilities that broadcast facilities need for dynamic live-to-air and off-air production environments.”
Comprised of the core unit, graphical user interface and optional fader control surface, the Studer Micro Series combines renowned Studer quality with intuitive features, such as AoIP, Lexicon effects processing and now ducking and proprietary VoiceMix automatic mixing for unprecedented value and versatility. Every function of the core unit can be controlled via the intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).
