Introduction
System Overview
The Mike user surface consists of a central unit with an optional fader
extension.
A separate software module running on an external PC configures
the system.
The configuration of hardware and software includes all settings
related to the installation and shall not be accessed by the operator.
The user can alter the behaviour of the system by selecting different
user selections and options. These are stored in user setups which
are accessed by the operators. In this way several different user
profiles are handled by the system.
2.
2.1
System Philosophy
Basic concepts
2.1.1 Console philosophy
The console block diagram is stored in the audio rack. The block
diagram describes in detail how the audio rack will respond to any
message from the user surface. The user surface receives the
required information from the audio rack when the system is started
and upon request. This information is combined with the user
configurable parameters from the user setup to form the rules for the
user surface behaviour.
2.1.2 Block diagram
The block diagram is created with the configuration program. When
the audio rack is a NTP router the configuration interacts with the
general router configuration.
2.2
Assign concept
All fader strips have one assign button. Only one fader strip have the
assign button illuminated. The control panel is displaying the settings
for the assigned fader strip.
The assign switch have no effect on any audio.

The source display indicates the name of the selected source.
The ready indicator is on whenever the selected source is in a ready
state. The ready state is detected by an audio rack GPI defined for
the source.
The peak indicator indicates an audio level above a configurable
trigger level. The level is detected by the audio rack.
The OnAir indicator is on whenever the fader is open and one or both
routing switches are on.

The routing switches connect the channel to one or both main sums.

Whenever the fader is in the extreme down position the fader switch
is off.

The cue switch serves several functions.

•
Short push toggles PFL mode on and off.
•
Long push gives momentary action.

•
When the source is of category machine the monitoring
changes to channel audition mode where start and rewind
messages are sent.
•
When the source is of category person, talkback is activated.

PFL cut on open fader. This option disables the PFL whenever
the channel is on air.
•
PFL interlock. This option gives only one active PFL channel at
any time. Any other channel with active PFL will be released.

Control panel
3.3.1 General
CONTROL
Secondary functions are accessed through the control panel.
The control panel displays the basic settings for one strip in the
system. Activating the assign function on any fader strip displays the
settings for that specific strip. The monitor, talkback and storage
panel displays separate lists.
The settings can now be adjusted, and are stored when the control
panel is attached to another strip.
3.3.2 Controls
The monitor screen displays the parameters as boxes with labels.
Each parameter box represents one adjustable parameter.
The selected parameter is indicated with a highlighted box.
The lower part of the monitor screen displays the parameter value in
detail.
The dual level dialling wheel adjusts the setting of a parameter.
PUSH TO CHANGE
FUNCTION
When the wheel is rotated it adjusts the selected
parameter.
When the wheel is pushed it steps to the next parameter.
If the wheel is rotated while it is pushed it scrolls through
the parameters.
When the scrolling reaches the last or first parameter it jumps to the
other end and continues.
3.3.3 Monitor screen for sources
The parameter list contains all channel functions for the channel.
The upper part of the monitor displays a stopwatch for the source.
The stopwatch starts from 0:00 and counts seconds upwards when
the channel is on air. When the channel goes off air the stopwatch
displays the last value until next on air.

The CUE indicator is on whenever one or more PFL switces are
active. CUE status overrides the monitor selector, and connects the
PFL audio to the monitor output.
The buttons labeled A and B are fixed monitor selectors which
override the source in the display. The switches are interlocking, and
a second push releases the selection.
The real time clock display shows the current time.
The peak meter displays the audio level for the monitor source that is
selected.
When Cue/PFL is active, the meter shows the PFL value.
In the configuration system it is possible to select different meter
scales.
The level control is the main level control for the monitor outputs.
