CCTV ORDER THREE SSL DIGITAL CONSOLES

SOLID State Logic (SSL) have announced that China Central Television (CCTV) have ordered a further three SSL digital consoles.
The first digital installation was completed in 1999, when a 48-fader, 96-channel Aysis Air was ordered for a new 9000 square foot studio at CCTV's main broadcasting centre in Beijing.
The initial console was joined by a second, a 32-fader, 64-channel Aysis Air, located in a 5,400 square foot studio in the same building.
The investment is further complemented by new orders for a further three digital consoles, including a 48-fader, 96-channel MT for music recording and mixing. The MT digital multitrack console will be installed in a new room at the broadcaster's TV Production Centre in Beijing.
In addition, CCTV have ordered two Aysis Air consoles for two new Outside Broadcast vehicles, currently under construction in France by the main contractor, Thomson. Scheduled for delivery later in the year, one mobile will house a 64-channel console, the other a 48-channel version.
CCTV, the national TV network of the People's Republic of China, have been broadcasting for over 40 years. The main Beijing centre now occupies an area of 11 hectares and has a staff of over 4,000. CCTV currently has eight channels, broadcasting 138 hours of programmes daily.
The coverage of CCTV-1 now reaches over 84 per cent of the total population of China, represented by the ownership of more than 280 million TV receivers. (CD)
