Omnibus Japan Chooses SSL’s C200 Digital Production ConsoleConsole to be used for its new surround suite (August 20, 2004)
Post-production specialist, Omnibus Japan, has installed a Solid State Logic C200 Digital Production Console at the Shin Akasaka Video Center, the company’s new headquarters, which opened in May 2004.
Established in 1987, Omnibus Japan has become one of the country’s largest post-production companies with five facilities in Tokyo including four post-production and one computer graphics facility. In post-production alone, Omnibus Japan operates 37 video editing rooms and 13 audio suites, and it also has the accolade of being the first post-production company in Japan to install digital video editing systems.
The company’s new headquarters includes several post-production rooms, one of which, MA-B, now has a 32-channel SSL C200 console as its centerpiece. This will be used for surround productions, which is an area of expansion for Omnibus.
Mr. Tsuneo Marui and Mr. Koichi Mori, chief engineers at the company, stated, “We were looking for a digital console that could handle surround productions, as this is an area we hope to develop by spreading the surround message to our customers. The desk is housed in MA-B, which is also THX approved.
“The C200 gives us good audio quality, especially with regard to the dynamics and EQ sections,” Mr. Marui and Mr. Mori continued. “It also gives us a sound that is very much like analogue, and it’s easy to operate with a nice, straightforward automation system. We especially like the fact that we can mix 5.1 and stereo simultaneously.”
Omnibus Japan handles a large number of television projects destined for transmission through the Terrestrial Digital Broadcasting network, which recently came on line in Japan. The new console will be used for HD and six-channel audio projects, as well as digital cinema productions, surround productions for TV commercials and domestic digital products such as DVDs.
