San Diego, CA (May 19, 2009)–Turning Point recently completed a new 45-foot remote truck that offers full HD production capabilities and features an SSL C200 console, Delta Link MADI HD units and stage boxes.
“When we first looked at the options available for a console, we really liked the ergonomic layout of the C200,” says Ric Seaberg, chief audio engineer and producer for Turning Point, the radio and television division of the ministry of Dr. David Jeremiah and the Shadow Mountain Community Church. “The C200 allows the engineers to stay in the sweet spot of the mix and still have control of level, EQ and dynamics because we can pull up any bank of eight strips and assign them to the center bank section. We regularly record a 30- to 40-piece orchestra supporting a 125- to 175-voice choir and we needed a console that would let us record live audio to video with automation. The C200 console easily accomplishes this and sounds simply great.”
The audio mission was accomplished through a 128-input, 32-fader SSL C200 HD digital production console with two SSL Delta Link MADI HD units providing the pathway to the resident Digidesign Pro Tools HD system and three 48-input SSL C-SB stage boxes for remote microphone control.
Turning Point produces programs that run nationally and worldwide, with radio programs routinely running over 2,000 times a day. TV productions are carried to every country in the world via five different satellite networks. Several programs have won Emmy Awards.
“We needed to upgrade to HD and the only sensible way to do this was with a truck,” Seaberg explains. “Turning Point has its own facility in Lakeside, CA, so the truck runs between the production facility and the Shadow Mountain Community Church 10 miles away to capture Saturday and Sunday services. The truck, which was integrated by Diversified Systems, is the HD part of our facility, so during the week we connect it up to our network and use it as our HD suite.”
