Comcast SportsNet scores with Solid State Logic's digital console
Comcast SportsNet has installed a Solid State Logic C100 digital broadcast console to handle the 5.1 surround mixes for all major sports events.
The channel owns the cable rights and is the production entity for all of the local telecasts for the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA), Philadelphia Flyers (NHL) and Philadelphia Phillies (Major League Baseball).
The C100 is the audio hub for the two stadium locations, The Wachovia Center basketball/hockey arena and Citizens Bank Park, the new major league baseball stadium. The console generates Dolby E surround, stereo and mono mixes for production and distribution.
The audio installation's set-up employs a fiber optic cable run of 6000 feet connecting SSL’s remote stagebox technology in the Citizens Bank Park, and the C100 which resides within the Wachovia Center.
