Philadelphia-based Comcast SportsNet, the 24-hour regional sports television network for the Philadelphia and Baltimore/Washington television markets, has selected an AMS Neve Libra Live Series II broadcast audio console to produce 5.1 surround mixes in its new high-definition truck, scheduled to debut in early 2003. The truck will be on hand to cover the Philadelphia 76ers, Philadelphia Flyers, Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals and Baltimore Orioles.

Steve Weber, director of engineering at Comcast SportsNet, said, "We like the feel of the Libra Live Series II. The intuitive way it is laid out and its overall flexibility spoke to our needs. You can quickly configure the console for a variety of shows with ease. We needed a console with many outputs, but one that could also be easily reconfigured for mono, stereo or 5.1, which will be offered on our high-definition telecasts.”

Weber said that he particularly appreciates the board's ergonomics: “Unlike the SSL and some other boards, where you have to touch the fader with your skin, the Series II faders can be pushed with a pencil, eraser, piece of paper, anything. The board’s design and ease of use is very important to us.”
