Japan leads the way with Solid State Logic’s first C200 order

Audio postproduction specialist Office Terra has become the first facility in the world to place an order for Solid State Logic’s new C200 Digital Production console.
The facility, which is affiliated to key Japanese broadcaster NTV (Nippon Television Network Corporation), handles video sound sweetening for a range of television programmes including news and documentaries. At present, Office Terra engineers work on a Solid State Logic SL4000 G Series console but have decided to upgrade to the new digital desk because it offers greater flexibility and versatility.
Office Terra’s engineers say they chose the C200 because it is ergonomically very similar to the SL4000G they were used to, and therefore immediately felt familiar to them. Once installed, it will be used in conjunction with hard disk audio systems and digital VTRs.
The C200 provides the latest adaptation of SSL’s popular in-line console heritage with a dedicated ‘knob per function’ control surface. It is particularly well suited to creative mixing applications, such as Music or Entertainment, where ‘hands on’ access to a large numbers of controls is essential. In-line versatility and the provision of both Snapshot and Dynamic automation make the console ideal for both live-to-air and post production mixing applications. A special ‘Mobile’ configuration is also available for compact studio or mobile installations.
Office Terra’s C200 was ordered soon after its world-wide launch at the NAB Convention in Las Vegas. It will be installed in September in the facility’s central Tokyo premises.
Niall Feldman, SSL’s marketing director, said: “It’s very rewarding to have a prestigious Japanese studio as the world’s first customer for the C200 console. For a traditionally conservative market, it says a great deal about the quality of the C200 and SSL’s reputation for great products and support that our first sale is in Japan.”
