Mobile TelevisionLas Vegas, NV (April 20, 2009)--Two new HD remote broadcast trucks featuring SSL equipment will be on hand at NAB. The Mansion Mobile Television truck, with a C100 HD-S Digital Broadcast Console, will be at the Calutech Mobile Solutions Booth #OE434. The other truck, from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) and showcasing a C200 HD Digital Production Console, will be at the Gerling & Associates Booth #OE100.
The Mansion Mobile Television truck is a 53-foot Expando HD truck with a 64-fader Solid State Logic C100 HD-S digital broadcast console. The truck employs 128 mic preamps, an SSL MORSE routing system and delivers audio for Pro Tools capture through two SSL Delta Link MADI HD modules for direct DAW connectivity. Mansion Mobile Television will use the truck for major sporting events including productions for Major League Baseball, the National Football League, Big-12 college football, Major League Soccer and the National Basketball Association.
Built on a conservative 42-foot frame with a 5-foot expanding side, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints dedicated 25 percent of the total space of the new production trailer for an audio suite. The centerpiece is a 96-input SSL C200 HD digital production console with 32 dual-fader channel strips. Supporting hundreds of input channels, the system includes two Delta Link MADI HD interface modules driving the resident Pro Tools system. Additional capture is through a Tascam X-48 Hard Disk Workstation and Sony HDCAM-SR studio recorders. A 48-channel SSL stage box utilizes fiber connections from the concert hall stage to the production trailer.
"We are excited that the visitors to this year's NAB convention will have the opportunity to walk through these two advanced technology HD remote trucks," says Phil Wagner, president of SSL, Inc. "Each vehicle represents audio capability that spans every situation from live sporting event broadcasts to high level concert sound capture. These consoles deliver the highest quality audio while providing an engineer-friendly interface, making the C100 and C200 extremely valuable tools for any broadcaster."
