Dogus Media Group, the broadcast division of Turkey’s media/service/construction giant the Dogus Group, recently installed two Solid State Logic (SSL) C10 HD compact broadcast consoles in its studio facility in Istanbul. The studios serve the news, sports, and entertainment programming needs of both NTV and CNBC-e. Because of this diversity of programming, the C10 was chosen to keep all aspects of audio production stable. Both consoles offer 32+8 faders with 96 DSP channels, each supported by four Alpha-Link Live and three Alpha-Link 8-RMP microphone input units. “For the past year, Dogus Media Group has been moving its production facilities, which serve seven TV channels and eight radio stations, into one location,” said Aysin Yilmaz, deputy technical manager for Dogus Media Group. “We wanted a console that would allow our engineers to really take charge and handle everything we threw at it. Having two identical consoles helps with our staffing schedule and the multi-level console lockout feature allows our chief engineer to set up programme parameters allowing a less skilled engineer to actually run a show, again giving us more engineering choices. The Dialogue Automix option really streamlines our panel-type productions, as the console maintains an even level for all microphones while maintaining constant ambient sound.” www.solidstatelogic.com
