Chicago, IL (September 2, 2011)–WLS-TV in Chicago has installed a Solid State Logic C100 HDS digital broadcast console.
The console was installed as an upgrade for the TV1 production control room and put into service for the station’s new program, “Windy City Live,” a Chicago-oriented talk show airing weekdays.
The console was specified to include the Dialogue Automix option to streamline the production of panel-type presentations and the 5.1 Upmix option to create 5.1 versions of stereo content segments for the live-to-air program.
“We upgraded our TV1 HD control room with new equipment and needed an audio console that would work for live production,” says Kal Hassan, vice president and director of engineering for WLS-TV. “The C100 HDS offered the specific features we needed at the right price/performance ratio for this particular installation.”
