Palo Alto, CA (March 20, 2007)–Euphonix announced that RH Factor has added the new FOX comedy The Wedding Bells to two other shows, ABC’s Boston Legal and NBC’s My Name Is Earl, mixed on its dual-operator Euphonix System 5-MC digital audio workstation (DAW) controller.
RH Factor, one of Hollywood’s leading independent audio post houses, has already completed post production on several episodes of David E. Kelly’s new comedy series, which airs Fridays at 9:00 p.m. ET.
The dual-operator System 5-MC includes 24 faders and an MC controller for each side, and serves as RH Factor’s primary interface for all editorial prepared for the three hit primetime shows. EuCon, the high-speed Ethernet protocol from Euphonix, enables the hardware surface to directly control both Pro Tools and Nuendo workstations. Though EuCon was designed specifically for audio and video software, it works with any Mac or PC application and can manage multiple workstations and applications simultaneously.
For the staff at RH Factor, the greatest benefit of the system is its versatility for utilizing the strengths of each workstation. “Pro Tools is the backbone of our editorial environment from dialogue to sound effects, ADR and Foley,” Craig Hunter, co-owner of RH Factor, said. “By incorporating Nuendo into our mixing environment, we can import clips from Pro Tools and use Nuendo for processing, editing and mixing dialog. Alternately, we can simply use Pro Tools as a source machine and bring in the units with the Euphonix router and format converter, thereby facilitating the broadest versatility possible.”
“Minimizing the file management time is important,” Hunter said, “which, as anyone in the digital environment knows, can be considerable at times. Our design goal was to augment the use of Pro Tools by incorporating Nuendo as a workstation recorder–thereby having the best of both worlds.”
