Palo Alto, CA (August 15, 2008)–Euphonix reports a sales surge of System 5-MC Integrated DAW Controllers in Europe led by Studio Hamburg, which had installed a 48-fader system, the largest in Germany.
Owned by Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR), Studio Hamburg Post Production GmbH services all aspects of post production including, video and audio editing, format-conversion, audio mixing and layback. Hamburg Post Production produces virtually all the post production work for TV, film and other productions done by Studio Hamburg GmbH, including Tatort ( Crime Scene), one of the country’s longest running TV series.
Studio Hamburg mixer, Christoph Metke who once worked on a dozen separate systems, can now achieve the same result using the Euphonix System 5-MC and a single Nuendo workstation. The Euphonix console with EuCon protocol allows direct control over all parameters just like a traditional mixing console. The Nuendo DAW not only allows unlimited track count for the sound designer, but also includes film-style mix automation. Nuendo project files now include the mix as well as the reference video, so the entire completed project is located in one folder on the workstation.
“We finally have a standardized the platform for the exchange of files. More than anything, this reduces the preparation time to configure various systems and backup projects,” said Metke. “I am glad we were involved with this new technology from early on as I believe this workflow system will quickly make huge inroads into the industry.”
Over the course of the next year, the studio’s network will be expanded and all workstations throughout Studio Hamburg will be connected to improve the transfer of projects.
In addition to Studio Hamburg, Accent Studios in Moscow, Paul Davies in London, Fundamental Studios in Ireland, Frauhofer Institute in Germany, and VaVaVoom and Wave Studio in Netherlands have all purchased Euphonix System 5-MCs.
