The Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBCI and LBC SAT) has become the first broadcaster in the Middle East to invest in a Solid State Logic C Series Digital Production Console.

LBC has installed a C100 digital broadcast console with two GSB stage boxes in its main studios in Adma, a facility that has recently undergone an extensive upgrade.

Alexis El-Henoud, chief audio operator at LBC, notes that initially LBC looked at the C200 digital production console, but after visiting SSL at the company’s headquarters in Oxfordshire, UK, he opted for a C100 because many of the projects LBC handles at Adma are live music orientated.

“We discussed LBC’s needs and [SSL] advised me to choose the C100 because it was better suited to our requirements,” says El-Henoud. “It is ideal for live broadcast applications and has a control surface that is very easy and intuitive to use. The GSB stage boxes, which have been installed in two separate recording areas that share the same control room, allow us to connect our microphones to the console via remote units and fiber optic cable. This provides us with much more flexibility and improves the overall quality of the audio.”

The C100 supports up to 128 input channels and provides simultaneous 5.1, stereo and mono signal paths directly from source through to destination. The console features 80 mix busses for numerous talent, communication and production area mixes.
