Solid State Logic Wins 2004 TEC Award For C200 ConsoleC200 wins Outstanding Technical Achievement award (November 08, 2004)
The 117th AES Convention brought with it a much-coveted Mix Magazine TEC Award for Solid State Logic’s C200 Digital Production Console. The console won the award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in Large Format Console Technology, acknowledging what many in the studio industry already believe – the C200 is a milestone in high-end digital technology. Sales of the C200 have been strong with over 60 sold worldwide over the last 18 months.
“We are very pleased and honored to have received this prestigious award for the C200, says Rick Plushner, president of SSL North America. “The C200 is a powerful and highly refined digital production console that is in use at a variety of world-class facilities. Its superb sound quality and innovative features appeal to a wide variety of clientele. The brisk pace of sales for this console and the TEC Award is testament to our engineering vision.”
The C200 represents the latest adaptation of SSL’s popular in-line console heritage with a dedicated ‘knob per function’ control surface incorporating analog emulation of proven SSL equalizer and dynamics sections. Based on entirely new Centuri processing technology, the C200 operates at 48kHz, or 96kHz for exceptional audio quality while retaining all of its extensive bussing capabilities at both sample frequencies. For demanding mix sessions, the C200 incorporates all the automation benefits of the popular MT series console, with new capabilities such as integrated DAW control, scalable DSP and complete layer and signal path metering, while offering the power of 128 available channels for large projects. Fully integrated surround mixing with automatic stereo and mono fold-down make the C200 the console of choice for studios desiring the very best.
