Xynergi Media Production CentreSydney, Australia, (September 7, 2007)–Fairlight has introduced the Xynergi Media Production Centre, a desktop interface centralizing tactile control of Fairlight’s CC-1 technology platform and Windows applications. The Xynergi Media Production Centre debuts at the IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam, September 7 to 11.
According to the manufacturer, “Xynergi organizes and delivers a suite of all the media processing tools needed for high-end audio for video production in all widely used surround formats.” Xynergi, Fairlight states, is based around a new concept in tactile control which harnesses the “green” processing power of Fairlight’s CC-1 digital media engine.
The Xynergi controller features self-labeling key switches that are able to display full-color images, icons or text to provide intelligent control over the recording, editing and mixing process. In addition, the controller can support any type of language or icon-driven menu structure with an “on-demand” QWERTY keyboard for routine naming tasks and immediate access to MS Office tools such as e-mail, Word and Excel. The controller also features eight touch-sensitive rotary controllers and multiple soft keys arranged around a color control zone known as the “pad.” These can be used to support Xynergi’s mix automation system as well as precise control over signal processing facilities, including multi-band EQs, three stage dynamics, multi-dimensional panning and auxiliary sends.
Key to the controlle is its ability to know what mode the operator is in, presenting only the functions relevant to the desired mode while hiding those that aren’t.
“The Xynergi Media Production Centre brings together the most powerful, versatile and scalable media production system in the world today,” announced John Lancken, Chief Executive Officer, Fairlight. “This revolutionary new control interface literally puts multidimensional tactile control at the fingertips of the creative community. When combined with the CC-1 engine, Xynergi dramatically increases the creative firepower that engineers, artists and producers have to work with.”
