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. “Our main reason for choosing SSL technology was the strength of the company’s reputation in the broadcast console market,” says Alexis El-Henoud, chief audio operator at LBC. El-Henoud says he opted for a C100 because many of the projects LBC handles at Adma are live music orientated. “SSL’s technical staff advised me to choose the C100 because it was better suited to our requirements. 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 fibre optic cable. This provides us with much more flexibility and improves the overall quality of the audio.” LBC is about to start work on the second series of Star Academy, the Arabic version of the Academy that aims to uncover and promote new music talent. The console will play a pivotal role in the second series, much of which will be broadcast live to both LBCI and LBC satellite audiences.
