Solid State Logic (SSL) has announced that ITN has become the first UK media organization to order a C100 digital production console. The desk is scheduled for installation at the end of April into Sound Control One, ITN’s main audio facility at its Gray’s Inn Road headquarters in London.
ITN made its selection based on hands-on testing. Station operators went through a typical news program on various consoles to test their capabilities under typical operational demands involving multiple live feeds. The ITN News studio handles the daily national news and current affairs programs produced for ITV1 by ITN, plus the London Tonight regional program on weekdays. It also handles special coverage of elections and royal family events. The set makes extensive use of virtual reality, so it was essential that any console chosen for the studio would be able to cope with complex audio delays.
Solid State Logic’s C100 is a robust, compact console, primarily designed for on-air and live-to-tape production applications. It supports up to 128 input channels and provides simultaneous 5.1, stereo and mono signal paths directly from source through to destination. The console features 80 mix busses for the multiple talent, communication and production area mixes that have become a standard requirement in today’s production environment.
