New York (April 22, 2004)–CSTV: College Sports Television, is now using a Soundcraft Series FIVE as the main on-air audio production console at its new headquarters and broadcast center on Manhattan’s West Side.
The 32-channel Series FIVE, which was installed under the direction of A.F. Associates project manager David Linick, features a customized configuration of 24 mono and eight stereo inputs. Located in the broadcast center’s control room, the desk is being employed to mix audio for all of CSTV’s original programming, including the cable network’s live studio shows CSTV Primetime and CSTV Scoreboard.
Linick notes that the desk was chosen for its “sound quality, reliability, input capabilities and intuitive operation.” The Series FIVE’s compact footprint and cost-effectiveness were further cited as other key factors.
College Sports TV (CollegeSports.com), the first 24-hour college sports network, is available to more than 20 million homes nationally on cable and satellite. The network is available on Time Warner, Adelphia and Insight cable systems, among others, and is also available on DirecTV (channel 610).
