Ravensbourne chooses SSL C10 HD for new production complex R avensbourne college recently opened its new, visually stunning HD television production complex in Londons Greenwich peninsula. The school chose a Solid State Logic C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console to handle audio for this technically advanced facility, providing the straightforward ease of use needed for students and the power and flexibility to handle both advanced degree and commercial applications. The C10 had to fill many missions for this installation and it has performed flawlessly, says Michael Davidson, subject leader, Foundation Degree, Broadcast Operations for Ravensbourne. We wanted a dedicated digital broadcast console that was easy to use for both beginner and advanced students, was cost- effective to purchase and operate, and would satisfy the needs of our commercial clients. The C10 was the best choice for this mission. Following the time-honoured design of BBC studios, the Ravensbourne installation has the production studio on the ground floor with the video and audio control rooms on a different floor. The entire building was wired at multiple key points for audio and video through the central operations room, including external linkage to an OB truck. Through its flexible I/O options, the C10 is ideally suited to service the audio needs of a wide variety of possible production locations and show types. The console also allows four levels of access to console functions to accommodate any operator skill level. www.solidstatelogic.com.
