NBC Sports Adds SSL C300 Console to Audio Postproduction Studio
NBC Sports installed a 48-channel, 128-input Solid State Logic C300 HD digital console in its audio postproduction studio 9E to fulfill the needs of HD, SD, and multi-lingual distribution in both 5.1 surround and full stereo. The C300 HD allows for the handling of these different mixes, while maintaining a simultaneous discrete stem approach.
NBC Studio 9E is used for the pre-tape and postproduction mixing and sound design for “Football Night in America,” the studio show preceding NBC’s broadcasts of “NBC Sunday Night Football.” In addition, these same tasks are performed for “Notre Dame Football on NBC” and, as Hockey season rolls around, “The NHL on NBC.” Such long-form tape shows as “NBC World of Adventure Sports,” “The World of Adventure Sports for Universal HD,” and “The ADT Golf Skills Challenge” are also mixed here. Music elements for “The DEW Action Sports Tour” are mixed and edited here as well. Elements for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, round out the work schedule.
The C300 HD provides monitoring of any of the bus outputs (5.1, stereo and discrete) or any of the tape returns of these sources through a comprehensive touch-screen monitor selector. A HUI interface allows for on-console control of Pro Tools internal mixer and editor.
