File Management

eMix 
eMix is the management software program for S5 Fusion and runs on a screen that sits next to the console. The program comprises the following modules:

  • Directory
  • PatchNet
  • System Diagnostics and Mixer Models
  • Mix and Group Bus Setup
  • Monitor Fold Down Setup
  • External Inputs Setup
  • Conform (see page 23)

Directory 
S5 Fusion has the following file hierarchy: Drives – Projects – Titles – Mixes.

A project is a folder which contains Titles. A project is like a folder and can be used to house all an operator’s Titles or all Titles in a Show. The Titles are where all the important data relating to a session is stored.

The directory includes all the features you would expect from a file management system such as copy, paste, rename, open and close. The eMix computer includes a large hard disk, recordable CD-RW drive and floppy drive. The CD-RW can be used to store and remove Project/Title information. Loading a Title brings back all the stored information about that title including Last Setup, Layouts, Meter Presets, SnapShots and, most importantly, the PatchNet digital patchbay.

PatchNet 
See previous page.

System Mixer Models
eMix allows the combination of channels, buses and externals to be changed very simply so that the system can be tailored to each application and installation.

Mix, Group, Fold-Down, External Setup 
Sections of eMix allow the mix and group bus formats, external formats and monitor fold down to be defined. Up to 24 external devices are available and can be set to be any format and can also be named such as 5.1 format DVD player or stereo CD player.
