Dubai Media has installed two Solid State Logic C100 HDS consoles in two new OB vans.

The installation will support the station’s live coverage of horse racing at Meydan and its broader push into live sports.

“The [OB] trucks were outfitted with the latest generation, high end HD equipment, so we needed consoles to match that quality,” said John Fee, outside broadcast manager for Dubai Media, Inc.

“The C100 HDS consoles were the right size, offering us great system flexibility and an easy learning curve.”

The station chose the consoles after a positive experience using a C100 HD in its main studio.

“We expect the SSL C100 HDS consoles to run audio for the over 1,400 programming days planned for this year covering all types of sporting events,” Fee continued.

“The sound quality the C100 HDS delivers is, in a word, perfect, which helps us capture the excitement for live broadcast. As we have Dolby encoding in both vans, the SSL consoles are surround ready when we move into full surround broadcasting of the sporting events. ”
