MORSE

Modular Resource Sharing Engine

Specifically designed for use with SSL's C100 Digital Broadcast Console, MORSE provides an extremely reliable, cost-effective, and scalable system for the sharing of audio I/O and managing related control data in multi-studio broadcast facilities.

Designed for critical on-air environments, it benefits from hardware redundancy and fault-tolerant proprietary software.

Consisting of modular I/O in stageboxes and a central router chassis with modular I/O, the result is a resource sharing capability that offers fast switchover of any control room between multiple studio floors, and parallel usage of the same resources – with full ownership arbitration to avoid conflict.

Control of MORSE I/O parameters and crosspoint routing is fully integrated into the C100's user interfaces, resulting in a seamless operational experience.
