Hollywood, CA (March 3, 2009)–Digital audio post production facility Sound Design Corporation has upgraded one of its five Fairlight-equipped studios with a Xynergi desktop Media Production Center.
Facility owner Paul Sandweiss says, “Sound quality and ease of file transfer were the main reasons why we decided to invest in Xynergi. There is a lot to learn with the new system, but the Fairlight team has been very helpful and have greatly assisted us in addressing some of our unique application issues. We believe that the new system will help us integrate easily into the coming work flow, where we will be doing less tape-based delivery, and more file-based delivery.”
From its inception in 1996, all five of the facility’s studios have been regularly upgraded to take into account the latest Fairlight technological advances. Sound Design is so impressed with its first Xynergi that it has now ordered two more Xynergi systems and plans to replace its remaining three QDC machines with Xynergi throughout the course of 2009.
“We have already used the new Xynergi system to record all the live music performances at the recent American Music Awards, which took place at the Nokia Theatre and was broadcast live on ABC in November last year,” Sandweiss says. “We have also used it for the live music performances at the Grammy Nomination Concert and to record BET’s annual celebration of gospel in December. The celebration of gospel was taped before a live audience but was mixed back here at Sound Design using the new Xynergi.”
Located on the historic 100-year-old Hollywood Center Studios lot, Sound Design specializes in all types of programming including variety and award shows, comedic series, documentaries, dramas, concert specials, animation shorts, commercials and DVD projects.
