SSL’s C100 digital production console makes Swedish debut

Solid State Logic has announced the sale of a C100 digital production console to the Malmo Opera and Music Theatre, the first time the desk has been chosen for a theatre application.
Over recent months the management of the Malmo Opera and Music Theatre have been upgrading the sound system and FOH facilities to incorporate digital live sound. As part of this refurbishment, the theatre decided to replace its 10-year-old analogue console with an SSL C100 digital production console as it needed a desk with more inputs and instant recall and reset capabilities.
Bengt Frienholt, technical manager of the sound department at the Opera and Music Theatre, said: “We chose the C100 because it provides facilities for a large number of inputs, which is important when we are staging musicals where we often use up to 46 radio microphones in a single production. Also, as we deal with live sound, it was important that any console we installed came from a manufacturer that could provide great service. SSL has a very good reputation for after-sales support and that inspired our trust in its products.”
Ronny Sjostrand, technical manager of SSL’s Swedish distributor Arva Trading AB, was given the task of project managing the installation. He explained: “When Bengt Frienholt contacted us to enquire about a new console we suggested that he looked at the C100, which at that stage had just been introduced. We recognised that, although this was primarily a broadcast desk, it also offered a number of features that made it ideal for theatre use. These include an ability to handle a large number of inputs and outputs, the opportunity to interface easily with other equipment and its snapshot facilities, which are ideal for live productions where it isn’t possible to use timecode. The console also offers facilities for surround sound, which was important for the Opera and Music Theatre has a 5.1 speaker system.”
The desk has now been installed and has already been used on a number of opera projects.
