SMC

Stereo and 5.1-Surround Monitor Controller

The SMC - Surround Monitor Controller is a one-point analog volume control and switching matrix for system-independent 5.1 surround and stereo monitoring for essentially any audio application:

  • Surround and stereo production
  • DVD-V, DVD-A, SACD and DTS authoring
  • Film and video postproduction
  • Video and game production
  • A/V and multimedia production
  • Audiophile home entertainment systems

The advantages of the SMC become especially apparent in combination with modern audio and video production tools such as ProTools™, Nuendo™, Cubase™, Logic™, Deck™ etc.

One of the SMC's biggest advantages is the possibility to manage several input sources, i. e. for comparing and monitoring SACD or DVD material.

Rob James, Resolution (GB):

"Anyone seriously contemplating working in surround with a workstation-based rig should be looking at this box. It is built like a tank and is suitable for monitoring surround mixes in 5.1 formats all the way up to DVD-A and SACD mastering."
