Todd-AO Installs multiple SSL XLogic Delta-Link Systems
State Logic is pleased to
announce the installation of 19 XLogic Delta-Link systems in multiple Todd-AO facilities.
The Delta-Link systems, purchased from West LA Music, provide a reliable and
easy to install platform for the transfer of digital audio information via MADI
between any MADI enabled devices and Pro Tools HD systems.
“We purchased the Delta Link because it allows us to
directly interface Pro Tools HD systems into our large-scale digital consoles
that we use for post production dubbing in TV and feature film,” says Bill
Johnston, Senior VP of Engineering, Todd-AO, which is part of Ascent Media’s
Creative Sound Services group. “Purchasing an SSL MADI interface alleviates us
from having to purchase an AES I/O for both the console and the Pro Tools
system and that saves us on both installation and overall costs.”
Several feature film hits including “The Bourne Ultimatum,”
“Sweeney Todd,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “American Gangster,” “SuperBad,” “The
Bucket List” and “P.S. I Love You” have benefited from the Delta-Link
installation. TV shows utilizing the Delta-Link include “Cold Case,” “Prison
Break” and “The Bionic Woman.”
“The Delta-Link is simplicity itself as there is only a
single rack space unit that directly interfaces with my console router,”
“All I need is two Madi BNC cables and word clock and I’m done. We are
installing the units in installations that only require fixed sample rates.
Basically, we have been using them for over four months now and we haven’t encountered
any problems. The Delta-Link is the perfect system for our needs.”
