Fairlight CC-1 hits U.S. post market
Reinforcing its leadership in providing post-production facilities with both reliable and cutting edge technologies for all post-production needs, Fairlight announced that TreeFall Productions in Charlotte, NC, has selected a new, two bay Constellation-XT as the primary engine for its 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. Ouzts particularly notes the CC-1’s timesaving ability to tweak 5.1 surround mixes to stereo with a single button.
TreeFall’s Constellation-XT will be the first U.S. Fairlight system powered by the new Crystal Core (CC-1) technology engine, launched at the recent AES show in San Francisco. 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.
