Versus Upgrades to Hi-Def with SSL’s C100 HD Console

Versus, the national cable television home of the National Hockey League and the Stanley Cup Playoffs, has acquired a Solid State Logic C100 HD digital broadcast console for its new, 18,000 square-foot facility.

The C100 HD will be used in live sports programming at the new facility in Stamford, Conn., adjacent to its previous location. A primary reason behind the decision to install a C100 HD, said Versus Director of Engineering Paul Koopmann, was a unanimous verdict by the C100 user base.

“The feedback on the console was tremendous,” says Koopmann. “It seemed that every operator we spoke with—Golf Channel and SportsNet in Philadelphia, along with many other installations that we met with in New York—were absolutely head over heels about the C100 HD’s power and capabilities.”

Koopmann also said the power of the C100 HD, its flexibility, ease of use and ability to expand and add features are important to the company’s growth.

Versus is a wholly owned company of Comcast Corp.
