Ravensbourne Chooses Solid State Logic C10 HD for New Production Complex

LONDON Ravensbourne 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-honored 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.

We really appreciate the level of access feature offered with the C10, explains Davidson. Our administrator level allows professional staff to set the console to accomplish a particular production mission. From there, depending on the skill level of the student, we can set the access level to console functions to insure everyone enjoys a panic-free educational experience. We have also created different levels of default, so if a setup gets unraveled, we can instantly get back to the beginning of the lesson.

Another consideration in favor of the C10 was green sustainability. The Ravensbourne facility is nearly self-sufficient through the use of heat exchange systems. The C10 is completely self-contained, has a small footprint and is convection cooled, eliminating the need for extra HVAC load capacity for a dedicated machine room. It also has impressively low power consumption and, like all SSL products, adheres to and exceeds all manufacturing legislation regarding waste and emissions. 

Everyone is looking at green issues now, especially with new construction, and the C10 fit in with this philosophy, Davidson states. We had the luxury of designing green from the ground up, so this building has exceptional cost savings on heating and cooling. The C10 fit our space and power requirements, while still delivering the high end power and flexibility we needed for our educational mission.

According to Davidson, corporate clients have already used the facility, with broadcast clients coming in the near future. It benefits the students to have a professional production company use our facilities. Our students get to work with professionals to gain valuable experience and, at the same time, network for possible job opportunities upon graduation. We needed an audio console that would attract commercial clients and the C10 fits the bill perfectly.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
