NAB 2013: Fairlight preps post showcase
“As a result of Fairlight’s investments and commitment to launching new products and technologies with tangible benefits for media content creators, visitors will witness the widest and most versatile range of Fairlight post production solutions ever on display,” says Jean-Claude Kathriner, CEO of Fairlight.
Individual product demonstrations will showcase production system options ranging from mouse based (SOLO), tactile desktop (XSTREAM, XYNERGI) to fully featured and modular consoles (QUANTUM, EVO).
Highlights at Fairlight’s NAB booth will include:
New DREAM software version featuring ASIO bridge: Fairlight’s latest release of software includes additional features, is easy to operate for new users, improves workflow, and delivers faster output. New features include mouse based editing, single screen interface with new mix panel choices, and as an option multi client ASIO bridge to host third party audio products (eg. Pro Tools, Nuendo).
iCAN (Integrated Control Across Network) is a customisation tool for all common DAWs or video production tools. Fairlight’s Layout Editor empowers the operator to simply drag-and-drop functions from a menu onto the Fairlight controller buttons, and determines when they will appear. iCan is designed as an open platform and can connect a Fairlight controller to third party content creation applications such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix or Media Composer and Edius. User-defined key layouts of the Fairlight controller display the operators’ ideal set up for third party applications.
SOLO is a professional mouse-based DAW with integrated video, offering a high quality yet cost effective solution for demanding media productions. SOLO provides editing, video guide, mixing, plug-ins, file transfer and recording – in one tool. The processing power of Fairlight’s FPGA based Crystal Core processor is said to guarantee highest performance, lowest latency and purest audio quality.
XSTREAM is a powerful and compact desktop controller for intuitive, fast tactile operation. Smaller than a 17” laptop footprint, XSTREAM’s picture keys on the control surface self-label instantly for easy navigation with fewer keystrokes, providing maximum efficiency. To enhance the mixing capabilities, XSTREAM can be specified with up to 24 touch sensitive motorised faders.
QUANTUM is a mid-size 12- or 24-fader media production console offering a very fast, mixing environment for most demanding audio/video productions using HD picture with up to 192 audio tracks.
PYXIS 4K is a standalone or rack-mountable, turn-key video recorder delivering a cost effective and future-proof UHD Video recording and playback, with extensive audio capabilities and workflow compatibility. PYXIS 4K records compressed or uncompressed video formats from SD up to 4K, and delivers transparent playback in up to 4K or dual-channel 2K resolution. For demanding multi-screen video wall presentations, multiple systems can be synchronised for playback in up to 8K resolution.
