Solid State Logic is pleased to announce the installation of 19 XLogic Delta-Link systems in multiple Todd-AO facilities. The Delta-Link systems, purchased from West LA Music, provide a reliable and easy to install platform for the transfer of digital audio information via MADI between any MADI enabled devices and Pro Tools™ HD systems.
“We purchased the Delta Link because it allows us to directly interface Pro Tools HD systems into our large-scale digital consoles that we use for post production dubbing in TV and feature film,” says Bill Johnston, Senior VP of Engineering, Todd-AO, which is part of Ascent Media‘s Creative Sound Services group. “Purchasing an SSL MADI interface alleviates us from having to purchase an AES I/O for both the console and the Pro Tools system and that saves us on both installation and overall costs.”
Several feature film hits including “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Charlie Wilson‘s War,” “American Gangster,” “SuperBad,” “The Bucket List” and “P.S. I Love You” have benefited from the Delta-Link installation. TV shows utilizing the Delta-Link include “Cold Case,” “Prison Break” and “The Bionic Woman.”
“The Delta-Link is simplicity itself as there is only a single rack space unit that directly interfaces with my console router,” explains Johnston. “All I need is two Madi BNC cables and word clock and I‘m done. We are installing the units in installations that only require fixed sample rates. Basically, we have been using them for over four months now and we haven‘t encountered any problems. The Delta-Link is the perfect system for our needs.”
Further installations of the Delta-Link systems have taken place at Sound One in New York City and in POP Sound, all part of the Ascent Media Creative Sound Services family of companies.
