Los Angeles, CA (September 3, 2004)–When Creative Studio Solutions, Inc., a Colorado-based studio design and engineering firm, was contracted to conduct the massive installation of Entravision’s 27 networked studios in Los Angeles, they immediately knew who they would use for connectors on this project–Neutrik USA. As installers of broadcast studios for some of the largest communications companies in the world, CSS turned to Neutrik USA several years ago for its connectivity needs and has been happy with their performance ever since.
“Because of the quantity of pre-wire and cables we do, we find that the installation time is cut down tremendously by using Neutrik connectors,” stated Andrew Rosenberg, CEO and Chief Engineer for CSS. “Their track record for providing quality products and service is tremendous.”
Located on Willshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, the Entravision installation included nine on-air studios, nine production studios and nine imaging studios, all interconnected at the request of Entravision’s owners and operators. Neutrik products were used throughout the entire studio/master control/routing system in order to provide the most reliable interconnectivity.
“This installation was a huge system designed specifically for Entravision,” Rosenberg continued. “It is a router-based system with audio in every studio going through the router instead of through the mixing board. Entravision wanted the ability to swap audio around everywhere–to bring audio up in any studio they wanted. Accessibility in all 27 studios was imperative and Neutrik connectors definitely helped facilitate matters.”
CSS pre-built all the wiring harnesses at its facility in Wheat Ridge, CO, utilizing over 2,500 pieces each of Neutrik’s IDC type XLR cable connectors, NC3FEZY-B and NC3MEZY-B, and over 100 each of the “P” series type XLR solder cup receptacles, NC3MP and NC3FP-1. Upon finishing the pre-built wire harnesses, CSS shipped them out to the Los Angeles studio for final installation, which was recently completed.
Since its inception, CSS has successfully built, installed and integrated studios for some of the nation’s largest broadcast radio corporations in the nation, such as Entravision Communications and Entercom Communications. In the last year, CSS has designed, built and installed over 40 On-Air, Production, News and Image Studios. By building strong relationships with clients and broadcast equipment manufacturers and technicians, CSS is able to deliver the highest-quality broadcast integration/design services available.
