Hessischer Rundfunk streamlines its workflow with Avid systems
Hessischer Rundfunk has selected Avid solutions to power its post production workflow. The upgrade enables Hessischer Rundfunk to benefit from the Avid MediaCentral Platform through enhanced collaboration, accelerated production, and producing and distributing higher-quality content to millions of German citizens via four radio stations and one television channel.
Hessischer Rundfunk has installed two System 5 Fusion digital audio mixing consoles and a ProTools HDX system with Interplay integration. Before the upgrade, the main production facility was equipped with an aging Studer mixing console. Due to the lack of integration with Hessischer Rundfunk’s audio/visual workstations, flexibility and control were limited. The new System 5 Fusion expandable digital console now lets engineers control content from up to five digital audio workstations using a single control surface, while delivering premium sound quality and performance.
“With S5 Fusion, Interplay, and Pro Tools 11, Avid has established a fully integrated file-based workflow for audio post production,” stated Juergen Winkler, head of IT and project management at Hessischer Rundfunk.
“Our collaboration with Avid has been fantastic since the very beginning,” added project manager Joachim Jacob. “Pro Tools 11 gives us the ability to import many types of video material without conversion, allowing us to work more quickly and efficiently. Plus, we are looking forward to using EUCON 3 with our S5 Fusion for complete hardware and software integration.”
