Paris, France (June 14, 2004)–Radio France, the French national radio station network, has ordered an Solid State Logic (SSL) C100 Digital Broadcast Console. Radio France has chosen to install the 56-fader C100 desk with 64 mic amps during July in the broadcaster’s prestigious Studio 106, where the bulk of its music programs are recorded. The desk will be used to handle live music shows and demanding broadcast programs.
Radio France says the console was chosen for a variety of reasons, not least its sound quality, which is of high importance to a broadcaster renowned for the care it takes with its audio output. Radio France also has two SSL MT PLUS consoles in other studios and an Aysis Air console in a mobile. Its good on-going relationship with the manufacturer was reportedly instrumental in the decision to buy a C100.
Introduced at NAB 2003, the C100 Digital Broadcast Console has had unprecedented broadcast sales success around the world since its release. Designed to meet the needs of today’s broadcasters as the industry pushes to all-digital, the C100 now incorporates a number of recently added features including a redundancy option for the DSP cards in the CPU core and a redundancy option for the surface of the console as well. Both features give the broadcaster failsafe operation capabilities, which is particularly critical for live applications.
