Fairlight Launches XCS Panel for Constellation Console

Fairlight has responded to overwhelming calls to bring its Xynergi based SLICK (self labeling illuminated computer key switches) technology to its popular Constellation large format mixing consoles. The XCS panel, which stands for Xynergi Centre Section, is now an available option across the complete range of its Constellation console series.

The Xynergi controller technology was first launched to the world in the form of the desktop Xynergi Media Production Centre and, according to Fairlight’s Sales & Marketing Director, Stuart DeMarais, “it quickly became clear that with the Xynergi technology, we had invented a controller that re-defined how users interface with their creative environment. Once they’d experienced Xynergi any other interface experience became a compromise. It was only a matter of time before we had a crescendo of voices asking for us to incorporate the Xynergi interface into our large format consoles and now we have pleasure in delivering this to the market?. more

DK-Technologies Sells First Multi-Channel Waveform Monitors

Visions, the largest independent Outside Broadcast facilities company in the UK, has taken delivery of the first batch of award-winning PT0760M Multi-channel Video Waveform Monitors to roll off the DK-Technologies production line in Denmark.

Although not officially due to ship until August, six of the units – literally serial numbered one to six – were rushed through the production process ahead of schedule so that Visions could use them for its coverage of Wimbledon 2008. Within hours of Rafael Nadal’s epic victory over Roger Federer, the units were being packed up for an epic of their own – the journey to Beijing, where they played a vital role in capturing the Olympics for US broadcaster NBC.

Visions Technical Director Rob Newton, who spent two weeks in China overseeing the broadcasts, says: “The DK units proved to be incredibly reliable and we had absolutely no problems with them, which is always a good sign for the future of such a new piece of technology. Our engineers really liked them and although we were only using a fraction of their functionality, they turned out to be really useful additions to our equipment list.? more
