Solid State Logic’s MTP Digital Production Console hit the road this spring in National Mobile Television’s (NMT) newly built HD4 mobile production unit. The new truck, which is NMT’s fourth high-definition unit and its first true multiformat HD facility, has already been booked as part of a multi-year contract extension between NMT and ABC Sports.
To deliver the audio portion of these high-profile broadcasts, NMT selected a 96-channel SSL MTP console with dual fader paths, 120 digital inputs, 104 analog inputs and 60 microphones. The console, which features an ergonomically efficient, "analog-style" dedicated control surface, provides fully digital signal processing and integrated routing, and is capable of multichannel operation including simultaneous 5.1 and stereo outputs. Each of the console’s 96 channels includes 4-band EQ, filters and full dynamics, as well as traditional small and large fader paths.
"When we decided to make this unprecedented investment into HDTV technology, nothing could be left to chance," said Jerry Gepner, president of NMT. "We’re glad to have an SSL console aboard the new flagship of NMT’s growing HD fleet."
