New York, NY (July 28, 2006)–EUE Screen Gems Studios, the New York-based division of multimedia company EUE Screen Gems Ltd., has chosen an SSL C100 Digital Broadcast Console as part of a complete facility renovation project.
“In searching for an audio console,” said chief engineer Douglas Joseph, “we wanted something that would provide excellent quality in standard definition, but also 5.1 support for when we went to HD.
“We evaluated a number of consoles, and decided on the C100 because of the tremendous amount of flexibility in terms of metering, the graphical feedback in terms of EQ and compression, and the rugged and reliable configuration, which we need in an on-air environment. We also wanted a console that was easy to use and could be run by a staff engineer or a freelancer because audio mixers’ schedules can change.

“We wanted a console that had an analog look and feel but the quality of digital, and we found that in the C100,” Joseph added.
“Part of what Doug did in his design was future proofing,” added EUE Screen Gems Studios’ Mitchell Brill, corporate development. “For this first phase of the build-out, we’ve identified, purchased and installed equipment that is future proof. The SSL is an important piece of that plan.”
“We had to work within our budget,” said Joseph, “and this is a console that is the right size for the application, which is great for us. Also, we bought a console that is expandable: the control surface has room for more faders. In the future, if we need expanded capability, we can just plug it in.”
