Toronto, Canada/Nashville (March 9, 2005)–Deluxe | Sound & Picture of Toronto, a leading provider of post-production services and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rank Group, has purchased a dual-operator Harrison MPC4-D Digital Film Console and a Harrison SeriesTwelve. The MPC4-D is a large-format console featuring “wide view” TFT displays with Harrison’s PreView display (patent pending), Harrison’s patented motorized joysticks, and the company’s exclusive DTC (Digital Tools Card) with film-specific plug-ins.
Gary Thielman, Harrison’s advanced products manager, remarks on Deluxe’s decision: “It’s commonplace in today’s industry to replace an analog film console with a digital film console. The next progressive step is the replacement of early technology digital film consoles with newer, more technologically advanced digital consoles. Deluxe is the first to take this major step by ordering a Harrison MPC4-D.”
When an opportunity arose to place the two System 5 film consoles currently at Deluxe into Todd-AO’s Lantana facility, everything fell into place. Todd-AO was able to maintain consistency in its rooms at a great price and Deluxe was able to secure its future in the post production market with a dual operator MPC4-D.
Ed Ballard, technical manager for Deluxe, explained that his decision was based on Harrison’s features, high-quality audio and proven reliability. Ballard goes on to comment, “Adding Harrison’s proven reliability to such exclusive features as ‘wide view’ TFT displays, PreView waveform with a complete overview of all channel parameters, 40-bit Wide Pipe digital.engine, and Harrison’s exclusive Digital Tools Card with film-specific plug-ins makes Harrison a great choice for a large-format film console in today’s world.”
