Oxford, UK (August 29, 2006)–Solid State Logic has reported “overwhelming demand for the C100 Digital Broadcast Console.” In recent months, broadcasters throughout North America have taken delivery of C100 consoles, in some cases housing as many as four C Series consoles.
CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, recently purchased its fourth C Series console, for a new HD remote broadcast truck. The custom C148/64 is a duplicate of an earlier installation of a C148/64 in CBC’s inaugural HD remote broadcast truck named “HD Premier.” CBC also recently installed a C140 for national news and a C264 in their Toronto HD entertainment production studio.
In the U.S., CBS has made a similar commitment to SSL consoles. The Bold and the Beautiful, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Price is Right, Real Time with Bill Maher and other CBS programs rely on a trio of C Series consoles: a C232 in post-production suite APP1, a C140 in Studio 58, and a C156 with custom patchbay integration in Studio 33.
On the East Coast, ABC has installed C100 consoles for a variety of applications. At the network’s New York headquarters, TV3, site of the prestigious World News Tonight, features a C156, while TV24, home of The View, houses a C140. Another C140 is being installed at the network’s Washington DC News Bureau.
E. W. Scripps Howard Company recently installed a C132 in the new control room of ABC affiliate WEWS-TV in Cleveland, while another Scripps-owned station, WFTS in Tampa, features a C132. Food Network’s celebrated New York City studios, another Scripps-owned entity, feature a C132.
Recently, WTFX, owned and operated by FOX Television stations, installed two C140 consoles in their completely renovated Philadelphia-based facility.
