The Danish Broadcasting Corporation will install two Solid State Logic 24 frame C100 Digital Broadcast Consoles in its Studios 11 and 12, replacing the existing analog consoles.

The facility produces radio and television programming, including news, documentaries and light entertainment. The console upgrades are scheduled to take place throughout 2003, with Studio 11’s console due for installation in July and Studio 12’s in December. Both studios handle audio production for television.

Peter Riis-Vestergaard, Danish Broadcasting’s project manager for Studio 11, recently visited SSL’s Oxfordshire premises to run acceptance tests on his C100 and meet the company’s engineering team. “The C100 is a fantastic console and we are delighted with our choice,” he said. “It will give us much more flexibility than we could ever hope to achieve with analog and will also enable us to work more effectively with the digital material we receive from our servers. One of the biggest advantages we have identified is the console’s ability to allow staff to work offline: They will be able to complete large parts of any given project on their own computers before downloading the material to the C100 for final production. This will save everyone an enormous amount of time.

“The desk’s configuration is very different to that of an analog console, so it is important that our staff have time to get used to it," Riis-Vestergaard added. "With digital, there are no audio patch panels as everything is configured within the desk’s computer. The staff will have to get used to using touch screens and menus, as well as knobs and buttons. Because the C100 is really very simple to operate, we believe they will soon find it much faster and more versatile.”

The facility is currently building a brand-new, all-digital broadcasting facility, DR Byen, near Copenhagen, which is scheduled for completion in 2006.
