Solid State Logic’s new C200 digital production console continues to gain popularity in Japan by attracting sales from some of the country’s top broadcast and post-production facilities.
Akasaka Video Centre in Tokyo recently installed a 32-channel Solid State Logic C200 Digital Production Console (pictured). The console, which will be used in Akaska’s new studio to handle television magazine and documentary programs as well as HD projects, is the second C200 to be sold in Japan.
The most recent C200 installation took place in August at the Imagica Akasaka Video Centre in Tokyo. A 32-channel console offering 64 processing channels at 48 kHz was installed in a new studio dedicated to television magazine and documentary programs, and HD projects.
Imagica is the largest post-production company in Asia, with five facilities in Tokyo and a facility in Osaka. The company is internationally renowned for pre- and post-production work on both film and television projects, and also owns two satellite broadcasting channels. Alongside its facilities work, Imagica develops specialist equipment and computer graphics software for the film and video industries.
Imagica already has an established relationship with SSL and has a range of SSL consoles including an SL 4000 G Series, an Avant Plus and an MT Plus. This latest installation brings the total number of SSL desks installed by the company to 22.
The C200 was chosen for its stability and ease of operation. With a number of projects already booked into the new studio, Imagica also specified that the desk should be installed very quickly. SSL was able to meet this tight deadline and the console is now fully operational.
Since it launched the console at AES Europe earlier this year, SSL has sold C200 consoles to a number of facilities on both sides of the Pacific. These include Nippon TV (Office Terra) in Japan, Western Carolina University in the US and Underdog Entertainment and Bicoastal Music, also in the US.
