Paris, France (January 20, 2006)–Fairlight announced that AUVITEC Post Production selected the DREAM Constellation XT as the foundation for its growing HD and 5.1 business.
“As we enter the era of High Definition in France, the 5.1 mixing process is key to providing the awe-inspiring audio that complements the brilliant visuals,” said Bruno Gaullier, director of AUVITEC Post Production. “We selected the Fairlight Constellation XT platform because it gave us the most powerful, efficient and logical path to HD migration. The Constellation XT combined with the Fairlight AV Transfer and Pyxis has enabled us to seamlessly work with other platforms in our facilities, increasing our production speed. We look forward to furthering our HD capabilities with Fairlight throughout our facilities.”
Founded in 1972, AUVITEC has fostered a reputation as one of France’s leading post-production facilities for over three decades. Dedicated to providing a comfortable yet technically stunning environment for its clients, AUVITEC operates multiple mid-size facilities that offer an intimate working surroundings. AUVITEC has six facilities throughout Paris, each a full-service post-production house. The DREAM Constellation XT will reside at the main facility, 14 rue des Acacias, where all HD projects are currently produced.
“In France, audiovisual post-production is not an industry but more a ‘family’ business,” said Gaullier. “Directors are anxious about their productions and most comfortable when they can be ‘cocooned’ in a productive environment with cutting edge technology. In our mid-sized facilities, the Fairlight platform gives us the tools to meet our clients’ needs flawlessly and efficiently in a comfortable setting.”
