Fairlight QUANTUM media production console
At NAB 2013, from April 8 to April 11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth SU9507 (Upper Level of the South Hall), Fairlight will present 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, Fairlight systems deliver benchmark performance and workflow integration into existing facilities.
QUANTUM is a mid-sized 12- or 24-fader media production console offering a responsive mixing environment for demanding Audio/Video productions using HD picture with up to 192 audio tracks. QUANTUM can fitted into a freestanding Fairlight designed chassis or mounted into a high-quality table from U.S. manufacturer TBC or the client’s own table design (QUANTUM.tm).
Fairlight DREAM software
Fairlight’s latest release of its DREAM software promises easier operation for new users, improved workflow, and faster output. New features include mouse based editing, a single-screen interface with new mix panel choices, and an optional multi-client ASIO bridge for hosting third-party audio products such as Pro Tools and Nuendo.
iCAN (Integrated Control Across Network) is a customization tool for all common DAWs or video production tools. Fairlight’s Layout Editor lets users simply drag-and-drop functions from a menu onto the Fairlight controller buttons, and determine when they will appear. iCan is 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 on the Fairlight controller display the operator’s ideal set up for third-party applications.
Fairlight SOLO DAW
SOLO is a mouse-based DAW with integrated video that provides editing, a video guide, mixing, plug-ins, file transfer and recording in one package. It includes the processing power of Fairlight’s FPGA based Crystal Core processor for high performance, low latency and pure audio quality.
Fairlight now also offers native, non-hardware-accelerated software versions for preparation and evaluation purposes or for students and teachers to record, mix or edit. Interested parties can inquire at the Fairlight booth regarding eligibility to receive a free software version.
The XSTREAM ultra compact desktop controller offers a smaller footprint than a 17-inch laptop. XSTREAM’s picture keys on the control surface self-label instantly for easy navigation with fewer keystrokes. The control surface “reinvents” itself for each task, presenting the commands at the right time. To enhance the mixing capabilities, XSTREAM can be specified with up to 24 touch-sensitive motorized faders.
