Mitomo Upgrades To Fairlight’s Latest CC-1 Technology

Tokyo-based post production facility Mitomo VTC (Video Technical Centre) has upgraded its Fairlight equipment to encompass Fairlight’s latest Crystal Core (CC-1) technology.

The facility has been using Fairlight FAME technology for some years but has now installed two Constellation XCS consoles, powered by the company’s CC-1 engine. The new desks include a three-bay console, which has been installed in studio MA1, and a four-bay console that is the centerpiece of studio MA2.

Mitomo VTC is primarily involved in audio post production for television and its main client is Japanese broadcaster NHK. By investing in Fairlight’s latest technology, Mitomo VTC has not only chosen an easy upgrade path but has also increased compatibility with NHK, which has also installed Fairlight’s CC-1 engine.

Mr. Yasuhara, head of Mitomo VTC’s audio technical department, says: “We chose Fairlight Constellation consoles because it offers a fully integrated solution, with everything we need located within one unit. The ability to import and use a variety of file formats was also a consideration, as was the cost/performance ratio, which in the case of Constellation is very good.?

Mr. Yasuhara adds that with its previous FAME set-up, Mitomo VTC was restricted in terms of file outputs and delivery formats. With its new CC-1 technology, the facility can now quickly and easily deliver projects in any format that the client demands, including WAV, OMF and AES31.

“Both in terms of performance and functionality, our new Constellation XCS consoles have exceeded our expectations,? he says. “The control surface is refined and intuitive and above all very easy to use. Initially, when using the Xynergi centre section, I wasn’t entirely convinced but as soon as I began to customise colourful Macros and became used to the flexibility and versatility of the Controller, I realised just how splendid it was. Constellation XCS delivers a wonderful impression and has the ability to meet the desires of many different engineers.?

Kenji Fukuda, head of Fairlight Japan which was responsible for the sale, says: “It is great to see another longstanding customer adopt Fairlight’s CC-1 system, which delivers unmatched value in today’s difficult market. We are delighted that Mitomo VTC has recognised the workflow and productivity benefits that come from switching to this new technology.?
