SSL highlights continued Asia Pacific Region Successes@ IBC07

Solid

State Logic, a manufacturer
of analogue and digital audio consoles and provider of creative tools for music,
broadcast and post production professionals, announced at IBC 2007 the continued
growth in sales across
Asia of its console
range as customers recognize the power, flexibility and sheer quality of the
company’s products.

CCTV – China
Central Television, state broadcaster – has purchased two C100 consoles. The
C100 – which is relied upon on over 90 live-to-air/live-to-tape broadcast
facilities worldwide with nine sales globally this year – is a robust digital
broadcast console designed for ease-of-use and reliability. With support for up
to 128 input channels, the C100 provides simultaneous 5.1, stereo and mono
signal paths directly from source through to destination. The console features
80 mix busses for the numerous talent, communication and production area mixes
that have become a standard requirement in program creation.

SSL is
extremely proud to announce that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC)
has signed a significant delivery contract with Amber Technology (SSL’s
Australian distribution partner) for the supply of a combination of SSL Music
Production and Broadcast Consoles until July 31st, 2013. Following a
comprehensive tender evaluation process carried out for several months by the
ABC, the supply contract began on 1st August 2007.

In

Japan, Magnax
Production facility has purchased a C200, a classic “in-line” console that is
proving to be as much of a success for live entertainment broadcast as it is
for music production. The digital C200 provides the latest adaptation of SSL’s
popular in-line console heritage with a dedicated knob-per-function control
surface. The C200 is suitable for creative mixing applications, such as music
or entertainment, where hands-on access to a large number of controls is essential.

In-line
versatility and the provision of both Snapshot and Dynamic automation make the
console ideal for both live-to-air and post-production mixing applications. A
special ‘
Mobile’ configuration is also
available for compact studio or mobile installations.

2007 has
been the year that has seen sales of the digital production console C300 really
take off as the notoriously exacting and fastidious post-production industry
has embraced its capabilities. Two highly regarded facilities in

Japan – DiMagic
and P’Studio Post Production – have purchased consoles. Meanwhile in Korea MBC
– Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation – has acquired three C300s.

The C300
is a fully configurable, multi-operator digital console for the full spectrum
of production and post-production applications. The latest model from the
industry-proven C Series range, it provides the powerful features, intuitive
operation, focused design and sonic excellence for which SSL consoles are
renowned.

The C300
offers up to 512 mix inputs from a single core, and the unmatched flexibility
of its DSP allows reconfiguration without a reboot. Simultaneous multi-format
mixing is provided via 80 mix busses that may be grouped and formatted (up to
7.1 surround), with a 128 x 8 monitor matrix and a 32 x 16 re-record matrix.
SSL’s unique TimeFreeze™ automation system, recorder control and a 4-port
serial machine synchronizer are included as standard.

For projects where mixing within the audio editing package is acceptable, the
C300 also provides direct control of the workstations found throughout the
production process, with the vital high-end benefits of an ergonomic control
surface, full monitoring and machine control, which are often limited or
completely absent on those platforms.

The first
client to order Duality, the large format analogue console, with full Redundant
Power Supply is Korean Broadcast Service who expect to receive their 72 Channel
console with internal Patch Option at the end of Sept 2007. KBS is the Korean state
broadcaster and the console is to be installed into their newly refurbished
high end music mixing facility for television and radio in Seol. KBS have also
ordered their second C100 HD console for live to air Broadcast.
