Washington, DC (November 15, 2006)–Production company Mason Media Group, LLC has chosen a Solid State Logic C100 Digital Broadcast Console as part of a facility-wide upgrade to high definition for the DC Office of Cable Television and Telecommunications.
Mason Media Group’s (MMG) private/public collaboration with the District of Columbia Office of Cable Television and Telecommunications (OCTT) includes upgrading and expanding OCTT’s all digital broadcast center. MMG will market this new HD broadcast center to commercial clients around the country. Its transition to high-definition–the audio centerpiece of which is the new C132–represents a milestone in government and commercial production.
“We considered a lot of things in selecting the manufacturers we were going to partner with to meet the needs of OCTT and MMG,” says MMG president and CEO Todd Mason. “Obviously, the functionality of the C100–how it will help us in facilitating the goals and objectives we had with the facility–was important. Also important was the manufacturer and what it is like to work with, not only in the initial process of acquiring and installing the equipment and getting people trained, but also its policies and track record. SSL was a very clear choice.”
MMG’s productions span a broad range of programming, from complex productions requiring multiple remote feeds to teleconferences and satellite media tours, all of which must be handled seamlessly. With the C100, Mason says, “We have all our settings stored for a daily show, plus we can store and quickly recall settings for occasional shows just as they were the last time the client was there. We’ve addressed that in every aspect of designing this facility: It has to serve the needs of MMG’s high-end broadcast and corporate clients as well as the very diverse governmental client base that the Office of Cable Television and Telecommunications serves and we support through our partnership.”
