Belgium (August 3, 2009)–Brussels, Belgium-based audio post production facility No Noiz has upgraded its equipment to incorporate Fairlight’s latest Crystal Core (CC-1) technology.
The Brussels-based facility already has a 24-fader Fairlight Dream Constellation console running on the CC-1 engine in its main studio one, but in recent months it has added a second Constellation console–this time a two-bay XCS, which now has pride of place in its smaller studio two. Both consoles were supplied and installed by Fairlight’s French business partner EuroMedia Technologies.
As part of a larger AV-facility group, No Noiz shares its premises with partner companies video post facility EXIT339 and computer graphics and Vfx specialist Pix It. Its main activity is focused on audio post production work for the videos and motion graphics created in the group’s Vfx suites, but it also handles external TV and radio commercials as well as sound optimization projects for the Flemish public broadcaster VRT.
No Noiz chief sound engineer Philip Van Bogaert says, “We have used Fairlight technology since the late 1990s and have always been very happy with the results we’ve achieved. This made the decision to upgrade to the new CC-1 technology very easy for us because we already had faith in the system quality, speed and ease of use.
“CC-1’s ability to handle virtually any audio and video format makes it ideal for us because we can now easily accommodate both internal and external projects, regardless of the format they are presented in. We were also impressed with its multichannel monitoring capabilities, including the fact that sources can be directly monitored in their ‘lower formats,’ for example 5.1 to LCRS, stereo and mono.”
