A SOLID State Logic (SSL) Avant digital film and post-production console has been installed in Dubbing 1 at Pebble Mill in Birmingham for BBC Resources, part of the largest television facilities company in Europe.
The 24-fader Avant, with 96 inputs, is operational in a completely refurbished studio equipped for Dolby 5.1 mixing. The console is currently employed on a variety of high-end television drama projects, the first of which was the latest series of 'Dalziel & Pascoe', a BBC Birmingham production for BBC1.
With its new system Dubbing 1 will also extend surround-sound mixing and remixing capability for DVD and other applications. The room has already been used to create the Dolby 5.1 remix for ‘Doctor Who: Five Doctors’, a DVD for the BBC that features extended scenes and untransmitted sequences from the original production broadcast in 1983.
Dubbing Mixer David Mason said: "Our Avant has revolutionised the way in which we produce drama. Increasingly, sound mixing for high quality television productions is resembling the feature film process with ever more tracks to mix. Consequently, the ability to perform virtual pre-mixes and change setups quickly in front of our clients without the time-consuming constraints of committing to tape - is a great benefit."
SSL have also published the latest version of ‘The Directory’, the international reference for SSL-equipped music recording studios, broadcast operations, film scoring rooms, dubbing theatres and post-production facilities.
Designed as a valuable guide for artists, producers, engineers and other uses of creative services, the current publication contains entries on over 1000 individual facilities, many of which are multiple-SSL installations.
In addition to the printed directory, a constantly updated version is available online at (CD)
