NBC Sports Upgrades Post Production Studio with SSL C300 HD Digital Console

Console Used for Production, Post Production and Sound Design

NBC Sports installed a 48-channel, 128-input Solid State Logic C300 HD digital console in its audio post production studio 9E to fulfill the needs of HD, SD and multi-lingual distribution in both 5.1 surround and full stereo. The C300 HD allows for the handling of these different mixes, while maintaining a simultaneous discrete stem approach, thus streamlining the work flow.

NBC Studio 9E is used for the pre-tape and post production mixing and sound design for “Football Night in America,” the studio show preceding NBC’s broadcasts of “NBC Sunday Night Football.” In addition, these same tasks are performed for “Notre Dame Football on NBC” and, as Hockey season rolls around, “The NHL on NBC.” Such long form tape shows as “NBC World of Adventure Sports,” “The World of Adventure Sports for Universal HD,” and “The ADT Golf Skills Challenge” are also mixed here. Music elements for “The DEW Action Sports Tour” are mixed and edited here as well. Elements for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the up-coming 2012 London Olympics, round out the work schedule.

The C300 HD provides monitoring of any of the bus outputs (5.1, stereo and discrete) or any of the tape returns of these sources through a comprehensive touch-screen monitor selector. A HUI interface allows for on-console control of Pro Tools internal mixer and editor.
