ABC Purchases C100 Console From SSL

(October 10, 2003) New York, NY-ABC has ordered a Solid State Logic C100 digital audio broadcast console for TV3. The C100 to be employed, which is a 56-fader/128-channel console with more than 400 inputs, will service the audio needs for various ABC on-air news shows. ABC currently uses one Aysis Air and two Aysis Air Plus consoles in three control rooms throughout its New York complex.

The C100 features SSL's new proprietary Centuri Processor, which contains all audio and control processing, I/O options, GPIO interfacing and fully redundant power supplies within a single 15U rack-mounted processor core, making the unit ideal for studio and mobile installations where space and weight are at a premium. The broadcast-focused design is targeted specifically for on-air studio applications, such as news, sports and live-to tape talk shows, where fast and efficient handling of sources and destinations are important aspects of the audio operator's role.
