ProjectBuilders, the design and systems integration division of Belgium-based broadcast facility management company Videohouse, has installed two Solid State Logic C100 HDS digital broadcast consoles into two DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) OB Trucks. The SSL desks represent a technological extension of DR’s recently completed four building, 133,000sqm complex for television, radio and live events, which features eight C200 and three C100 consoles. “When you put together a project where each piece of gear must work together in the same environment, it is very useful to collaborate with a company that knows how to do this and is ready, willing and able to jump in to help. SSL is that type of company,” said Eddy Brants, senior sound engineer/designer for Videohouse. Videohouse’s chief sound engineer, Koen Bredael, added: “This is my first direct experience outfitting an OB truck with an SSL console, and the experience has been very good. As we are part of the Euro Media Group, our company had the opportunity to work with an SSL console that was installed in a Euro Media France OB truck, which provided excellent results. SSL produces consoles that offer complete redundancy, and that is a very necessary factor for the DR trucks. To handle every deployment situation, we installed two mobile 56-channel SSL Stage Boxes in each truck. The Stage Boxes feed an SSL MORSE Router in each truck, and this system works quite well.” www.solidstatelogic.com
