SSL UPGRADES C300 CONSOLE
AMSTERDAM – The UK’s Solid State Logic (www.solid-state-logic.com)
is here at the IBC show with an upgraded C300 HD Master Studio system, which is
aimed at pros working in the nonlinear world of film and television post
production. The C300 is a compact, assignable, scalable console designed for
fast and efficient sweetening and mix creation.
Upgrades include tri-level sync support; serial control of
HD VTRs; an enhanced 96kHz feature set with provision for up to 16 discrete
audio channel; a Pec/direct switch option; three or four-channel side/rear
surround panning; extended DAW control with SoftKey keyboard commands; an improved
Center Section GUI with larger timecode display; 32 full resolution meters; and
extended Mix Pass List display with 10 levels of undo.
Borrowing techniques created for its AWS 900+ analog
workstation, SSL’s C300 HD integrates DAW control, allowing close interaction
between console and DAW. Automation developed for the C200 digital production
console provides complete realtime and non-realtime control over the console’s
signal processing. This allows operators to slow down fast moves to a more
manageable pace, or set up whole scenes using a locate key.
The C300 HD completes a family of digital production
consoles with its sister C100 HD and HD-S and C200 models.
