Begbroke, U.K. (July 21, 2004)–In the face of intense international competition, Solid State Logic has won two major contracts to supply ten C Series Digital Production Consoles to The Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR). Eight C200 and two C100 digital production consoles are destined for DR BYEN, a brand new, all-digital multimedia facility and concert hall currently under construction in Copenhagen.
Four of the C200 consoles will be installed in the Music Recording and Concert Hall building, while the remaining C200 consoles will be installed in three television studios and one news and current affairs studio. The C100 consoles will also be installed in news and current affairs studios. These facilities are all expected to be complete by the end of 2006.
The Danish Broadcasting Company (DR) began planning its new facility in 1999 after a decision was taken to relocate the 12 DR sites in Copenhagen to a new home–DR Byen in ÿrestad Nord. This new multimedia center is being built on a green field site at an estimated cost of DKK 3 billion (at 1999 prices). Construction activities are divided into four segments, which are being designed by four different architectural teams in order to obtain maximum variation within the General Plan. The segments will incorporate music recording studios, television studios, radio facilities and a large concert hall, which will be the flagship of the project.
DR’s ambition is to create a multimedia center that will be the envy of the world and will allow the broadcaster to provide audiences with better programs and more choice. The 3,000 staff that will be moving to the new center in 2006 will enjoy a flexible, open workplace and a lively setting for teamwork and creativity.
