Mountain View, CA (November 6, 2009)–French media group CMC-Digimage has installed four Euphonix System 5 consoles in a newly opened TV/film post production facility located in the south of Paris.
A division of CMC-Digimage, Digimage-Cinema will offer high-end HD as well as the biggest color grading room in Europe. The new facility consists of two large stages each equipped with 56-fader Euphonix System 5 Hybrids dedicated to feature film mixing and two smaller stages each equipped with 32-fader Euphonix System 5 Hybrids to be used to for TV projects or to start film projects.
Serge Arthus, director of this project for Digimage designed the facility’s specifications, while systems integrator, 44.1, delivered a complete turnkey installation. Identical A/V equipment and cabling as well as a network of workstations including Pro Tools, Pyramix, and VCube and the four Hybrid consoles allow projects to be easy moved between rooms. The System 5 hybrid option features EuCon, a high-speed Ethernet control protocol designed by Euphonix to allow control of any software application.
The Euphonix System 5 has become the industry standard for the French feature film mixing community. “The majority of French film mixers enjoy working on the System 5 finding the control surface and automation extremely intuitive and easy-to-use so it just made sense to equip the new facility with four Euphonix System 5s,” explained Arthus. “And from a business point of view, I find the reliability of the system and the level of customer support unrivaled.”
As an all-in-one packaged audio mixing system, the System 5 is designed to meet the needs and budgets of modern mixing facilities that require a professional mixing console that can handle a large number of tracks with the quality and reliability of DSP channels, professional monitoring, plus the ability to control DAW tracks directly from the console surface.
The System 5 also features a new expandable DSP SuperCore, which provides DSP channels, each with EQ and dynamics processing, delay and surround panning to multi-format mix, group and aux buses.
