ATC 5.1 surround system installed in Studio One BBC Television Centre
A 5.1 surround system comprised of ATC (Acoustic Transducer Company, West Gloucestershire, England) SCM Series Professional Monitor Loudspeakers has been installed in Studio One at BBC Television Centre in west London.
Studio One combines space of over 10,000 square feet and audience seating for 384 people with technical capability for fast turnaround productions and live programs such as coverage of national elections, awards ceremonies and charity telethons.
The new multi-channel monitoring system uses a mix of large and small active three-way monitors from the SCM Series, a combination made possible by the dispersion and phase characteristics of ATC. Left and right speakers are SCM 150ASL Pro monitors, using 15-inch super-linear bass drivers to give extended bass, headroom and dynamic range. The center channel is an ATC SCM100ASL with soft dome mid-range driver and 12-inch bass driver. ATC SCM50s are used for the rear channel speakers.
