Videotime installs third SSL C100 digital production console

Italian TV broadcast production and post production specialist Videotime has confirmed an order for the facility's third Solid State Logic C100 Digital Production Console.
The desk has now been installed and is being used for a variety of programming, all of which is broadcast in either stereo or 5.1 surround.
Videotime, which belongs to the Mediaset group of companies, has three main production centres located in Milan and Rome, from which it provides a range of broadcast services and technical equipment to Mediaset's three broadcast channels, Canale 5. Italia 1 and Rete 4. The various facilities employ over 200 people and incorporate 10 studios, two OB vans, six graphics studios and 24 editing rooms. The new console has been installed at the company's facility in Milan, which already houses two C100s.
Videotime is currently undergoing a transition from analogue to digital production and sees the C100 console as instrumental to this change.
Alfredo Trusiani, Videotime's technical manager, said: "Our decision to buy C100 consoles was based on a number of factors, not least the good experiences we have had with SSL products in the past. We conducted extensive research and demoed a number of different manufacturers‚ products.
"The C100 came out ahead because it was the only product that had a very similar operational approach to our existing SSL consoles. This meant that the transition from one desk to another was relatively straightforward for our operators."
