NDR Installs Fairlight Xynergi Systems

German public broadcaster NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk) has ordered five Fairlight Xynergi systems, which it is installing in its television production facilities in Hamburg.

The installation is part of a major upgrade to switch all of the broadcaster’s sound editing facilities to 5.1 surround sound, thus making them HD compatible. All of the Xynergi systems are being supplied by Media Logic, Fairlight’s German distributor. They will be installed by Hamburg Pro Audio and will be connected to the existing Omneon Mediagrid production server to ensure an integrated, networked MXF-workflow for TV formats in SD and HD. more

CR Sound Installs a Fairlight Constellation XCS Console

Although originally founded as an audio post production facility for advertising and corporate clients, Kansas City-based CR Sound now has an enviable reputation as a film post facility having mixed seven feature films in the last decade.

Located in the beautiful Country Club Plaza, CR Sound is headed by Craig Rettmer, formerly manager of Soundtrek Plaza which he bought from his partners five years ago. Alongside CR Sound’s audio room, the building also houses a video editing facility, a film production group and a PR firm.

In recent months Rettmer and his team have upgraded the equipment in the main studio to incorporate a new Fairlight Constellation XCS console featuring a Xynergi centre panel and running on Fairlight’s latest Crystal Core (CC-1) engine. This replaces the Fairlight MFX3 Plus that Rettmer inherited with the business.

“We have been using Fairlight equipment since 2000 and I’ve always been more

RAS Audio Services uses SADiE on CBBC’s ‘Prank Patrol’

Manchester-based RAS Audio Services has highlighted the power and flexibility of the SADiE PCM8 for television audio production by using it on the forthcoming third series of CBBC’s extremely successful ‘Prank Patrol’.

Produced by Bakermedia in Manchester and scheduled to air from January on BBC2 on Saturday mornings, the 10×30 ‘Prank Patrol’ follows the team of Barney and the Ninjas as they play elaborate pranks on viewers’ unsuspecting friends and family. Mummies come to life, aliens land, robots bust through walls…all of which is a far cry from RAS Audio Services’ core business of recording brass bands, choirs and chamber music.

“I used to work for Bakermedia’s MD a few years ago at another facility house, now defunct, and having re-established contact I was asked if I’d like to do the audio post for the forthcoming third series,? explains RAS’s Richard Scott.

The combination of Richard’s experience more

Remote Recording uses Fairlight’s New Xynergi to Record and Edit the 2009 Latin Grammys

Karen Brinton, President of Remote Recording, and her audio recording team chose Fairlight’s Xynergi to record the 2009 Latin Grammys, which took place in Las Vegas in November at Mandalay Bay.

Peter Gary, Engineer in Charge, became interested in the Xynergi after he was introduced to the system by New York-based Dale Pro Audio, which is Fairight’s exclusive dealer for northeast USA.

Gary explains: “The flexibility of the Xynergi system is really incredible. We were able to record 128 channels along with HD/SDI video for hours on end with absolutely no issues. While in record, the system was also able to backup the previous sound check (all 128 tracks plus video) onto an external hard drive. This negates any transfer time after the show, saving the clients money and having the media ready to post on any DAW system immediately.?
