The system is controlled by a Master Processor which accesses the Channel Faders and the Switchpoint Matrix. The Attenuators are realized by logarithmic D/A converters and grant a step size of 0.375 dB over the fading range between 0 and -88.5 dB. Fading, routing, and mixing (internal processes) are bound to SMPTE frames, using the device-internal SMPTE-Generator. In addition, external processes (triggering of events, dynamic access to- and redefinition of remote equipment can be synchronized via a range of communication links. All internal and external processes can be stored to and recalled fro the device internal removable Mass Storage (high capacity RAM cards). In addition to the principal hardware realization, the paper will cover some aspects of process synchronization.
