Studio Hamburg adds Euphonix System 5-MC with integrated DAW
Studio Hamburg, one of Germany’s most prominent production and service centers for film and television, has installed a Euphonix System 5-MC integrated DAW controller in its main Nuendo mixing and editing room.
Owned by Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR), Studio Hamburg Post Production services all aspects of post production including, video and audio editing, format conversion, audio mixing, and layback.Hamburg Post Production produces virtually all the post-production work for television, film and other productions done by Studio Hamburg, including “Tator”(“Site of Crime”), one of the country’s longest-running TV series.
The Euphonix console with EuCon protocol allows direct control over all parameters like a traditional mixing console. The Nuendo DAW not only allows unlimited track count for the sound designer, but also includes sophisticated film-style mix automation. Nuendo project files now include the mix as well as the reference video, so the entire completed project is located in one folder on the workstation.
This installation of the Euphonix System 5- MC with 48 faders is one of the largest in Germany. During the next year, the studio’s network will be expanded and all workstations throughout Studio Hamburg will be connected to improve project transfer.
The System 5-MC tightly integrates with DAWs, such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Logic Pro, Digital Performer and Pyramix, using the high-speed EuCon control protocol over Ethernet. Euphonix’ EuCon Ethernet protocol offers simultaneous control of multiple applications and workstations.
