London, UK (November 30, 2011)—Ravensbourne College in London recently installed an SSL C10 HD compact broadcast console in its new HD television production complex in Greenwich.
"The C10 had to fill many missions for this installation and it has performed flawlessly," says Michael Davidson, subject leader, Foundation Degree, broadcast operations for Ravensbourne. Following the time-honored design of BBC studios, the Ravensbourne installation has the production studio on the ground floor with the video and audio control rooms on a different floor. The entire building was wired at multiple key points for audio and video through the central operations room, including external linkage to an OB truck. Through its I/O options, the C10 can service the audio needs of various possible production locations and show types. The console also allows four levels of access to console functions to accommodate any operator skill level.
"We really appreciate the level of access feature offered with the C10," explains Davidson. "Our administrator level allows professional staff to set the console to accomplish a particular production mission. From there, depending on the skill level of the student, we can set the access level to console functions to ensure everyone enjoys a panic-free educational experience. We have also created different levels of default, so if a setup gets unraveled, we can instantly get back to the beginning of the lesson."
