Digital audio technologies suppliers Fairlight have announced France Télévisions has choice of their Audio Post Production system EVO to upgrade 25 regional studios.
Recent changes to France Télévisions production and distribution of regional news and programs required a complete workflow solution seamlessly integrating audio post in a news production environment. Following a detailed technical and operational evaluation process as part of a European Union tender, Fairlight EVO was chosen by a France Télévisions expert review panel out of many international suppliers as the preferred audio post solution. Fairlight EVO’s superior tactile control surface, the high speed processing power of its CC-1 Media Engine and the customisation opportunity of the new iCan technology was recognised by France Télévisions to deliver faster and higher throughput. The expertise to handle complex workflows through innovative management tools such as TTWASS (Total Tapeless Automation System Suite) together with strong service support from Broadcast Architech, Fairlight’s distribution partner in France, supported the decision to partner with Fairlight. Jean-Claude Kathriner, CEO of Fairlight says: "We are delighted that France Télévisions is joining the increasing number of broadcasters around the world selecting Fairlight technology for their audio post production requirements. We are looking forward to working closely with France Télévisions and Broadcast Architech to ensure smooth implementation of the systems." Installation of the first regional studios is scheduled for January 2013." www.fairlight.com.au (IT)
