Video and film post production facility, Safak Studios, in Turkey is the first in the country to invest in a Solid State Logic C200 digital production console. With the installation, the company, which currently undertakes post-production projects for a number of national television channels, hopes to attract more work from European countries.
“At Safak, we like to ensure that we always use the latest technology, which is why we have chosen an SSL C200 digital production console,” says Idris Ustun, chief executive officer, Safak. “SSL's reputation and expertise in the field of digital audio, combined with the C200's unique features and flexible platform, very much determined our console choice. The C200’s scalability and architecture will allow us to upgrade the console in the future to encompass technological changes and developments taking place within the industry.”
The C200 was installed in June and since then, staff members have undergone a period of training in readiness for the opening of the new studio, which should be up and running this month.
“The C200 is an advanced console that is capable of tackling complex post production projects with ease. Yet, despite its complexity, it remains very user friendly and has been easily accepted by our technical staff,” adds Ustun.
The installation is part of the company’s investment in a new audio post-production studio that will be up and running later this month. The facility will be equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound facilities. It will also support 35mm and HD (High Definition) film post production. Turkish consultant Duyal Karagozoglu designed the new studio, with the help of local systems integration specialists, Radikal Ltd.
