European debut for Fairlight EVO.Live desk
EVO.Live, Fairlight’s new generation digital audio mixing system, will make its European debut at IBC 2014 on Booth 7.H17. Designed for the most demanding on-air and live productions, EVO.Live won a Best of Show Award when it was launched at NAB 2014 and broadcasters around the world have been quick to spot its potential.
Based on Fairlight’s audio processing and control surface technologies,EVO.Live is a powerful console that offers integrated HD video and multitrack audio recording. However, what makes EVO.Live unusual is its ability to switch between live and post production modes at the touch of a button so that staff engineers can use the desk for audio sweetening when it isn’t needed for on-air applications.
EVO.Live incorporates Fairlight’s integrated control surface technology featuring unique Picture Keys that self-label instantly for each task performed. These display the right commands and functions at the right time, ensuring a much faster workflow and giving users much better control of their events.
It also features Fairlight’s FPGA-based Crystal Core engine that delivers high channel and bus counts, low latency and exceptional audio quality. The console additionally provides advanced surround sound mixing capabilities, off-line preparation via laptop, a built-in sound effects cart machine and control extensions to lighting systems, third-party DAWs and sound library databases.
EVO.Live is available in different stand-alone chassis sizes, as well as surface-mounted and table-top configurations, from 12 to 60 faders. The ergonomic integrated control surface design with touch screen TFT monitors offers immediate access to all critical live functions with excellent visualisation. An optional second hot-swappable FPGA based engine with dual-input power supplies gives redundancy and further enhanced system reliability.
