Atlanta, GA (October 9, 2012)-The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Communications Services (DCS) recently added a second SSL C100 console in a new production complex.
Joining an existing C100 in the facility’s Control Room A, the Solid State Logic C100 HDS digital broadcast console is the audio centerpiece for the new Control Room B, delivering operational consistency. The completed DCS facilities allow the CDC to react to any health crisis by providing programming and interviews disseminated through news and talk shows. Additionally, DCS uses the studios to produce a continuing series of in-depth educational programs on health related topics of interest to the medical community.
“The primary use for the C100 HDS will be for everything from talking-head type productions to panel discussions using call-in capabilities to producing programming and other news outlet related events,” says Russell Chamblee, facilities manager for Division of Communications Services (DCS). “We have experienced excellent results with our existing studio equipment in Control Room A and wanted to have Control Room B mirror those capabilities. This setup gives us a great deal of flexibility for scheduling regular programs and producing content for health emergencies. The addition of the second C100 allows our engineering staff to operate between Control Room A and B without missing a step.”
Due to budget constraints, the Studio B complex was not built until the workload demanded greater access to production facilities to meet the needs of the CDC mission. The DCS facility produces programming at 720p HD for everything from training videos for health care workers to live satellite broadcasts to all the health care workers in the United States.
