SSL to show C200 HD console
Solid State Logic (SSL) will showcase its new C200 HD digital production console with an enhanced feature set at NAB2008 in booth N4031. Of particular interest to broadcasters are the remote I/O capabilities that are ideal for live production applications.
The expanded C200 HD feature set now includes routing system expansion to more than 5600 inputs and outputs to yield flexible management of huge audio I/O resources. Coupled with the SSL Stagebox system expansion with modular, hot-swappable I/O, the routing capabilities yield a cost-effective system with a wealth of broadcast-related configuration options for mic, line, AES and SDI I/O.
The C200 HD now offers full support for tri-level sync with solid internal clocking for the highest audio stability and performance to picture. This is an important capability because the broadcast world is moving to an all-HD production model that relies on tri-level sync to link various HD components such as cameras and audio recorders. The C200 HD also supports HD playback machine control and dynamic automation at both SD and HD frame rates.
SSL’s proprietary Centuri core contains all audio and control processing, I/O options and GPI interfacing within a single, robust chassis. Up to 512 inputs and outputs may be handled directly from the Centuri core. Card options include analog, AES/EBU digital and MADI, all operating at 24-bits with sample rate conversion for digital I/O standard. A 60-channel GPI card may be fitted to provide programmable machine starts, cue lights, etc.
