Sydney, Australia (November 7, 2006)–Fairlight announced that TreeFall Productions in Charlotte, NC selected a new, two bay Constellation-XT as the primary engine for its thriving long form post-production needs.
TreeFall Productions specializes in Foley, sound design and mix for long form video and film, especially animation, network programs and corporate projects. According to TreeFall owner Jason Ouzts, the facility had been looking for a platform that would deliver productivity and reliability and the Constellation-XT delivered on both counts.
“I had been a Fairlight operator before and always felt I could depend on Fairlight,” said Ouzts. “With the introduction of the CC-1 technology for the Constellation-XT and the ability to have that Fairlight speed and dependability, I knew I had to make the move.”
“Also, with the Constellation-XT,” said Ouzts. “I quickly learned how easily I can prepare a 5.1 surround mix and then just hit a button to tweak the stereo mix. It’s such a big time saver which is critical for us.” This unique Fairlight bus reduction feature is indispensable for post-production shops that work under very tight deadlines.
TreeFall’s Constellation-XT will be the first Fairlight system operating in the U.S. powered by the new Crystal Core (CC-1) technology engine. Based on the latest Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) silicon technology, Crystal Core delivers quantum performance gains by shrinking hardware into a single purpose-built media processing chip. Crystal Core technology delivers improved quality, unparalleled flexibility, scalability, enlarged system scope, and previously unattainable price performance gains.
