Burlington, Canada (July 19, 2012)-Canadian religious broadcaster CTS recently chose an SSL C100 HDS digital broadcast console to handle audio for its new Audio Control Room B.
The console integrates with SDI video infrastructure and utilizes an I/O system with stage boxes in multiple production spaces. The expansion into a new control room represents the beginning of a facility-wide upgrade for audio to increase production capacity and turnaround.
"We have been planning this expansion for several years and each time we took another look at consoles, the SSL C100 came out on top as the best suited to handle our range of productions," says David Storey, director of engineering for CTS, a terrestrial religious broadcaster serving Ottawa, Toronto, London, Calgary and Edmonton. "We go from talk shows to having full orchestras in our studios and we felt that the C100 would give us the most flexibility for our expansion into a second audio control room."
The C100 is used to produce 100 Huntley Street, an hour-long Christian values-based talk show with multiple segments that range from remote interviews to panel discussions. The production engineers use SSL's Dialogue Automix feature and the new C-Play spot and music playout system integrated into the console.
