From independent facilities to major film sound stages, Solid State Logic’s C300 HD Master Studio System delivers an unbeatable combination of enhanced productivity, secure performance and operator-friendly design.
The perfect mix of power and control
The C300 HD is the perfect nerve center for commercial dubbing and post facilities. It combines the unrivalled audio fidelity & processing of an SSL digital audio console, comprehensive multi format monitoring, multi system machine control and a highly evolved hardware surface that seamlessly integrates hands-on control of the consoles internal audio path and multiple Digital Audio Workstations.
With unrivalled DSP flexibility, C300 HD offers over 500 mix inputs, 80 mix busses and true multi-operator capability from a single processing core. C300 HD is a truly integrated control and processing solution that will make your facility more efficient.
HD Post Production
The commercial success of HDTV and Home Theatre Surround systems, together with the availability of high quality broadcast HD programming and HD DVD content, mandates a radical new approach to Audio Post Production. The universal consumer adoption of 7.1 playback systems with independently addressable side and rear speaker pairs, means that HD sound will eventually need to be mixed natively for this format and that current methodology of utilizing an analogue matrix to synthesize a mono rear signal from the existing 5.1 stereo surround information will not remain acceptable in the long term. C300 HD provides the tools required to support these latest developments and more.
The C300 HD delivers significant time savings in the critical mixing stage of a project, offering increased workflow and true cost efficiency, particularly when compared to the compromised quality and throughput imposed by semi-pro audio editing equipment, which cannot provide the nonlinear multi-input automation, superior sonics, and integration advantages of a professional solution.
Affordably priced, the C300 HD provides the features vital to commercial film and post production, while allowing tailored scaling of all parts in order to meet operational and budgetary demands. Future accommodation is through a clear upgrade path, ensuring a long and productive working life.
The 15U x 19” Centuri core houses easy access power supplies, audio and control processing with Telecom quality secured connection to the back panel and I/O options within the single, robust chassis.
The Centuri core supplies four serial machine control ports, one DCTM parallel port and LTC/MTC time code outputs for external machine control. A compact flash drive in included for project data archive and an optional Super MO drive for project is available. A panel fitted with 16 MIDI connectors provides connection for up to 4 DAW HUI advance control.
All I/Os are able to run at 96 kHz operation. It is possible to mix any incoming signal at any provided format with any other signal, running a different format, word length or sample rate. To maintain sufficient airflow, the Centuri core is equipped with fans. Suitable acoustic isolation between the machine room and the control room is therefore required.
