Exclusive: SSL strikes Benelux distribution deal with Face in bid to boost reach18 July 2017
A/V distributor Face has been appointed as distributor for SSL broadcast consoles throughout the Benelux region and SSL live consoles in Belgium and Luxembourg, reports Pro Sound News Europe’s Marc Maes.
“We’re convinced of the synergy between live and broadcast for live sound TV events like the Eurovision Song Contest or The Voice,” commented Glenn Willems, audio specialist at Face. “Shared resources and Dante networking is definitely a winning point. Both the live as well as the broadcast consoles fit in a network and stand-alone environment. The user interface is great for stressful situations, which occur on a regular basis in broadcast and live.”
On June 7-8, Face organised an SSL broadcast launch event, introducing the new System T console. In various time slots over the two days, Face welcomed 30 customers to discover the new System T broadcast audio production desk. During several private tech sessions, Caroline Tew, SSL product specialist, and SSL sales manager Tim Harrisson, took time to explain the functionalities of the advanced SSL technology and consoles.
SSL studio consoles continue to be distributed by Joystick Audio.
