Boston NBC affiliate WHDH-TV has installed a Solid State Logic C100 digital broadcast console in its new control room. The installation completes the broadcaster’s move to a new control room and its transition to all-digital status.
For WHDH director of engineering Jim Shultis, the C100 was a perfect fit for the fast-paced facility, which broadcasts more than six hours of live news daily. “The selling points were the flexibility of the metering, the robustness and the operating system,” Shultis says. He noted that 5.1-channel audio will accompany the station’s conversion to high-definition video. “When we start doing some sources in 5.1, we can just hit switches on the module or software to make it 5.1 and see the 5.1 metering in the TFT display,” Shultis adds.
