Paris, France (December 5, 2005)–Leading post-production company Creative Sound has become the first facility in Europe to order Solid State Logic’s new C300 digital production console, which was launched in September at IBC Amsterdam.
Since its formation five years ago, Creative Sound has been providing post-production services to a range of television and DVD clients from its studio complex in the 15th Arrondissement. For the last three years, the facility has been using SSL’s Avant Plus technology in its main Dolby and DTS approved Theatre A.
Facility owner Cristinel Sirli said the decision to order a new C300 console was taken in response to the competitive and challenging nature of the French post-production industry. “Creative Sound is a young company that has built a strong reputation among prestigious television customers, particularly those involved in documentaries, dramas and DVD mixing. This reputation is based on the fact that we always pay attention to innovation and because we believe in providing customers with solutions that have technical and artistic merit. We see equipment as a tool for our creativity and a means of satisfying our customers, both in terms of controlling workflow and completing projects in the fastest possible time.”
The C300, destined for Creative Sound’s Studio C, has 152 inputs and outputs and is equipped with SSL’s revolutionary new Timefreeze automation, along with a powerful 128×8 monitoring matrix. It will be installed in January 2006.
“The new SSL C300 complements our existing Avant Plus and will allow us to offer a level of effectiveness that is way beyond that of a simple remote control system, or indeed other consoles on the market,” Sirli said. “It is the first console to offer perfect integration of a DAW, along with an incredible set of features such as automation, monitoring and the ability to handle numerous tracks.”
