Sydney, Australia (April 1, 2013)-Fairlight will present new production systems powered by the latest DREAM software as part of its product offering at NAB 2013.
“As a result of Fairlight’s investments and commitment to launching new products and technologies with tangible benefits for media content creators, visitors will witness the widest and most versatile range of Fairlight post production solutions ever on display,” commented Jean-Claude Kathriner, CEO of Fairlight.
Fairlight will showcase production system options ranging from mouse-based (SOLO), tactile desktop (XSTREAM, XYNERGI) to fully featured and modular consoles (QUANTUM, EVO), powered by Fairlight’s award-winning, hardware-accelerated Crystal Core processing engine with new DREAM software.
According to the company, Fairlight’s latest release of its DREAM software includes a wide range of additional features, is easy to operate for new users, improves workflow and delivers faster output. New features include mouse-based editing, single screen interface with new mix panel choices and, optionally, a multi-client ASIO bridge to host third party audio products such as Pro Tools and Nuendo.
Released late 2012, the XSTREAM desktop controller is smaller than a 17-inch laptop. Picture keys on XSTREAM’s control surface self-label instantly for easy navigation with fewer keystrokes, providing maximum efficiency. XSTREAM can be specified with up to 24 touch sensitive motorized faders.
Launched at the 2012 AES Convention, QUANTUM is a mid-size 12- or 24-fader media production console offering a “very fast mixing environment for most demanding AV productions” using HD picture with up to 192 audio tracks. QUANTUM may be either fitted into a freestanding Fairlight-designed chassis or mounted into a high quality table from US manufacturer TBC or the client’s own table design (QUANTUM.tm).
iCAN (Integrated Control Across Network) is a customization tool designed as an open platform and can connect a Fairlight controller to third party content creation applications such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix or Media Composer and Edius. User-defined key layouts of the Fairlight controller display the operator’s selected set up for third party applications.
