Istanbul, Turkey (February 2, 2012)—Dogus Media Group in Turkey recently installed two SSL C10 HD compact broadcast consoles in its newly consolidated studio facility in Istanbul.
Serving the 24/7 news, sport and entertainment programming needs for NTV, primarily a 24-hour news station, and CNBC-e, a financial news and popular programming station, Dogus Media Group—the broadcast division of Turkey’s media/service/construction giant the Dogus Group, a 124-company conglomerate—chose the C10 HD to help meet the broadcaster’s expanded media capabilities.
“For the past year, Dogus Media Group has been moving its production facilities which serve seven TV channels and eight radio stations, into one location,” says Ms. Aysin Yilmaz, deputy technical manager for Dogus Media Group. “The NTV News Cube and CNBC-e 360 studios were the final projects, and this is where the C10 consoles were installed. SSL has been my dream console since I began in this business and now I am very happy to have two.”
Because of the diversity of programming on NTV, an MSNBC affiliate, and CNBC-e, which is operated jointly by CNBC Europe and the NTV Group, Yilmaz chose the C10 to keep all aspects of audio production stable. Both consoles offer 32+8 faders with 96 DSP channels, each supported by four Alpha-Link Live and three Alpha-Link 8-RMP microphone input units.
Yilmaz notes, “Having two identical consoles helps with our staffing schedule and the multi-level console lockout feature allows our chief engineer to set up program parameters allowing a less skilled engineer to actually run a show, again giving us more engineering choices. The Dialogue Automix option really streamlines our panel-type productions, as the console maintains an even level for all microphones while maintaining constant ambient sound.”
