New York, NY (March 5, 2010)--Manhattan Center Studios (MCS) in New York has purchased a 24-channel Solid State Logic C10 HD digital broadcast console as part of an HD upgrade in Studio 1.
MCS is an event and performance space that is available for entertainment, corporate and special occasions, including recent productions with MTV, YES Networks and BET. The C10 HD will help facilitate the station's transition into a full HD broadcasting studio.
In addition to the Hammerstein and Grand Ballrooms, which were transformed to suit the requirements of concerts, television shows and theatrical productions, MCS also provides both television production facilities and audio recording studio spaces. Studio 1 is in the process of being rebuilt to a full HD control room and required a digital audio board to handle talk shows, live broadcasts, music shows and other similar projects. In response to this need, MCS purchased the C10 HD, which will provide 5.1 audio capabilities.
The C10 HD for MCS also includes the Dialog Automix option, a feature which automatically balances the overall volume and ambient noise of a multi-mic "talking heads" discussion. Additionally, MCS will have connectivity to the large Hammerstein Ballroom with an SSL Alpha-Link Live I/O panel. This will allow Studio 1 to be the control room for shows and events produced in the Hammerstein Ballroom.
