WPTV Installs Solid State Logic HD Console

Solid State Logic has installed a C100 HD console at NBC affiliate WPTV in West Palm Beach, Fla. The station, part of the Scripps-Howard network of stations, provides live local and national news coverage and weather reporting.

The 32-fader, 64-channel C100 HD console supports the audio throughput of on-air news personalities and server-based content, while streamlining the production flow of the station and delivering the digital pathway necessary for the all-digital broadcast mandate in 2009.

“The C100 is driving our news broadcasts and everything else we do out of our main control room,” said Paul Smircich, senior audio engineer for WPTV. “This involves five hours of live news programming per day. The engineers at Scripps-Howard have a well established relationship with SSL through C100 installations in other stations they own, so this was a natural choice for us.”

WPTV is the sixth Scripps-Howard C100 installation, joining WEWS-TV in Cleveland, WFTS-TV in Tampa, Fla., WMAR-TV in Baltimore, the Food Network in New York City, and the Great American Country facility in Nashville, Tenn., serving the Country Music Cable Network.
