Burlington, MA (June 11, 2014)—Hessischer Rundfunk, one of Germany’s public broadcasters, has selected Avid solutions to power its post-production workflow. Hessischer Rundfunk will use the Avid MediaCentral Platform for producing and distributing 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 Pro Tools|HDX system with Interplay integration. 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.
“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.”
