New York, NY (March 4, 2014)—Trinity Church recently installed a Solid State Logic C10 HD compact broadcast console to drive the audio for its new production control room.
Historic Trinity Church, a landmark at the intersection of Broadway and Wall Street in New York City, produces about 450 live events in the course of a year, including its signature Handel’s Messiah, performed by the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra with Julian Wachner conducting.
“We produce seven services a week and between 35 to 45 concerts per year in addition to public live events, and we deliver both live broadcasts and material for DVD release, so we have an extremely busy production schedule,” says William Jarrett, director of media, production and operations for Trinity Church. “While we looked at all the digital broadcast consoles on the market, the SSL C10 HD completely fit all our varied production needs. The engineering staff is thrilled with the console.”
The console was specified with an SSL Morse Router and Morse Stageboxes for straightforward installation and ease-of-use. Because of the routing power and the console’s operational design, the engineering staff has been able to create a wide range of presets to instantly address different programming needs.
“The C10 is very flexible and you can easily configure it many different ways,” says Leonard Manchess, chief engineer for Trinity Church. “We are developing a library of console presets to handle setups for a service, a roundtable, a 50 piece orchestra—whatever we need…The audio system is over MADI fiber, which makes moving a lot of channels to the console happen quickly, and the installation was a breeze. The C10 is just a very flexible board and it suits our needs for all the different types of events we produce.”
Trinity Church also purchased several of SSL’s optional features including Dialogue Automix, C-Play, 5.1 Upmix and DAW Control with DAW I/O through the Delta-Link MADI HD to Pro Tools.
