OXFORD, UK — Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of analogue and digital audio consoles and provider of creative tools for music, broadcast and post production professionals, is pleased to announce a continuing strong demand for its highly popular C Series digital consoles. Both the C100 and C200 are enjoying attention from a wide variety of installations throughout North America, with many companies adding new consoles to existing C Series facilities.

“It is testament to the skilled engineering behind C Series Digital Consoles that sales continue to climb in the U.S.,” says Steve Zaretsky, vice president of broadcast, SSL, Inc. “With our exceptional product range and unparalleled service and support, we remain committed to exceeding broadcasters’ demands.”

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) has ordered two additional C Series consoles for 2008. A C232 Digital Production Console will be delivered in March for installation in a production truck based in Halifax. The console will be used to process and route audio for live broadcasts. A C140 will be delivered to the Toronto facility in May for use in their HD news broadcasts. This marks the fifth and sixth SSL C-Series console sold to the CBC. The new consoles join their four siblings that perform multiple tasks: two C100 consoles in remote trucks and a C100 and C200 located in CBC’s Toronto facility used for live news broadcasts.

CBS has ordered the largest C200 console SSL has ever built for The Late Show with David Letterman. The C296 Digital Console will handle all of the music production requirements for The Late Show. The installation is scheduled for this summer in the legendary Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City.

KPIX-TV, a CBS owned and operated station located in San Francisco, has installed a C132 console used for live on air news broadcasts. The C132 streamlines KPIX’s audio capabilities, while providing HD-quality audio in line with new network broadcast mandates for San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose.

WMAR-TV, Channel 2 is the ABC affiliate in Baltimore, MD owned by the broadcast division of the E.W. Scripps Company. The station purchased a C132/24 for live news broadcasts and will be on air this summer. This C100 joins C100 installations in other Scripps properties at ABC affiliates, WEWS in Cleveland and WFTS in Tampa, FL, and two in Scripps network facilities: Food Network in New York and Great American County (GAC), a Nashville-based country music television network.

LiveWire Remote Recorders, LTD of Canada recently installed a C232 in a remote truck based out of Toronto. The installation includes two SSL Stage Boxes for remote mic pre-amps. The C232 will be used for live broadcast music production. The truck is slated to work on the Juno Awards program (Canada’s Grammy Awards) broadcast on April 6, 2008 on CTV and will proceed to the NAB show in Las Vegas on April 14 through 17, 2008.

Iowa Public Television (IPTV) has purchased a third C100 console, a C124 to be installed in a new remote truck that is under construction. Currently, the other two C100s are being installed in their TV facility and include SSL’s MORSE (Modular Resource Sharing Engine) system, allowing the console to access remote mic inputs via fiber from either of Iowa’s two studios.

Madison Square Garden just completed the installation of a C140/32 console to handle live productions for MSG Network based inside of Madison Square Garden, the New York metropolitan area’s top sports broadcaster.
