Fox Television has purchased six 32-fader, 96 in-line channel Solid State Logic C200 digital production consoles to serve their on-air promotion and sports departments.
The first four consoles, scheduled for installation by year’s end, will be used for on-air promotion replacing the SSL Scenaria digital post-production mixing systems in use since 1992. The remaining two C200 consoles will arrive in early 2004 and be used for Fox Sports projects.
The Fox On-Air Promotion Group’s C200s will be used in conjunction with the Fairlight editing system with SSL customizing the console and rolling script tray to accommodate the Fairlight controller. The two C200 consoles slated for Fox Sports will be used in conjunction with Digidesign’s Pro Tools editing system.
The C200 represents the latest adaptation of SSL’s dedicated ‘knob per function’ control surface with analog emulation of equalizer and dynamics sections. Based on entirely new Centuri processing technology, the C200 operates at 48kHz or 96kHz while retaining all of its bussing capabilities at both sample frequencies.
For demanding mix sessions, the C200 incorporates all the automation benefits of the SSL MT Plus series console, with new capabilities such as integrated DAW control, scalable DSP and complete layer and signal path metering.
