System 5-B, Euphonix's flagship broadcast digital mixing system, has been upgraded with a new generation mixer software package and hardware updates to the control surface. The 2004 model, which debuts at this year's NAB Convention, supports up to 96 channels using a single DSP mixer core and includes 24 mix buses, 24 group/clean feeds, and 16 IFB/aux sends. The new System 5-B also includes a dedicated mix-minus bus with single button press N-1 mix-minus outputs and talkback from each channel.

A second model, named the System 5-BP, supports up to 310 channels and includes mix automation for those broadcasters and live venues that require both on-air and audio-post capabilities in one system.

Both System 5 models include the same redundancy features.

In other Euphonix news, the Max Air Broadcast Tour vehicle makes a stop at the Euphonix booth at the NAB convention in Las Vegas, following visits to various west coast TV stations.

This specially commissioned truck is outfitted with a 96-channel Max Air digital audio mixing system and is set-up to simulate a local TV station digital audio control room. During the show, attendees will be able to get a hands-on demonstration of Max Air and take a look at the vehicle and other digital audio and video equipment integrated with Max Air and presented by the tour’s sponsors.

Post-NAB, the Max Air Broadcast Tour heads East, reaching Chicago in mid June and New York at the end of July.
