New York, NY (December 3, 2010)--MSG Media is installing a new 32-fader SSL C100 HDS digital broadcast console, joining two others at its new studio complex.
This latest C100 HDS is currently being installed along with two Alpha-Link Live I/O units and a MORSE Router system with Stage Boxes. MSG Media encompasses three HD channels: the MSG channel, MSG Plus and Fuse, the music/entertainment channel. The new C100 HDS console joins two C100 HD consoles already in use for live broadcast and support programming for the network.
"Our new studios feature two original C100 HD consoles and we have just installed a new C100 HDS," says Michael Mitchell, chief engineer for MSG Media. "We have an extremely demanding production and post production schedule, and the SSL consoles afford us very worthwhile efficiencies for our different programming missions. They also consistently deliver great sound."
The C100 HDS is located in the "multi-purpose" room and will be used primarily for live audio mix, voice over and SAP. For example, when Fuse puts on a live show from within the studio complex, the C100 HDS will be used as a sub mix feed into either of the main control rooms so the main program audio mixer can concentrate on the entire show. All three audio control rooms are tied together through a MORSE Routing and Audio Asset Sharing system to present unified resources for any application.
"We have tied our audio assets together to all of the production aspects of Fuse, MSG Network and MSG Plus, in such a way that from any room, anybody can do whatever they need to do," explains Mitchell. "This allows us to streamline our studio scheduling. We've gone to great lengths to make sure the consoles offer the same configurations and resources so the engineering staff can move between studios efficiently."
