Montclair, NJ (November 22, 2010)--The Dumont Television Center, College of the Arts at Montclair State University in New Jersey has installed an SSL C10 digital broadcast console.
The installation of the SSL C10 provides Audio Control Room A in the college's new all digital HD production complex with an audio console that fits in with Montclair's initiative to offer educational and commercial learning opportunities for its students.
"Montclair State University has a dynamic broadcasting program within the College of the Arts, and it has been my job to upgrade the facility into a high definition, first class, professional broadcast environment that fulfills our education mission," says Jeff Friedman, director, Dumont Television Center, College of the Arts, Montclair State University. "In the updated facility, I selected manufacturers and specific equipment that our students will come across as interns in New York City and other locations. To have our students learn on an audio console of the level of the C10 is vital, as SSL consoles are among those they will see throughout the industry."
To offer its students a comprehensive education, Montclair State University rents out its facilities to professional content creators and public sector partners, offering students the opportunity to assist in all aspects of production. This approach benefits students on two levels: experience with professional productions and making contacts in the professional community for possible future employment.
"We have always accommodated limited facility rentals by professional clients because it is an excellent learning experience for our students," states Friedman. "Our students are paid to work in important crew positions alongside professionals who might employ them in the future. Having an SSL console in Audio Control is clearly a positive for both students and clients."
