Nashville, TN (November 16, 2007)–Nashville-based country music television network Great American Country (GAC) has acquired an SSL C100 HD Digital Broadcast Console. The C132 will be housed in the network’s new production studio–due for completion Q4 2007–on Nashville’s Music Row.
A critical factor in selecting the C132 was GAC’s future direction, notes vice president of production operations, Kevin Kritch. “We anticipate more performance-based production in the facility, so it was important for us to have a good quality sound board that provides a lot of flexibility, as well as having multi-tracking capabilities,” he says. “Our quality and production demands are as strenuous as any network’s. Premiere programs require exceptional production and Solid State Logic’s C100 HD ensures that we will provide viewers at home with the cleanest and sharpest audio quality possible.”
The new console will be used to produce entertainment shows such as GAC Top 20 Country Countdown, GAC Nights and On the Streets. In addition to country music videos, GAC features original programming, special musical performances and live concerts, and is the exclusive television home of the Grand Ole Opry. GAC is available in approximately 50 million households.
“We looked at other consoles, but SSL has a proven track record among numerous Scripps owned properties, including Food Network and broadcast stations, that are extremely pleased with the results,” Kritch confides. “After reviewing the alternatives, it was an easy choice.”
