Gefen switchers integrate with Euphonix System

Sound supervisor, sound editor and dubbing mixer John Ross, whose most recent project is "Take the Lead" starring Antonio Bandaras, has created a unique, modern method of mixing that incorporates every system component into the central Euphonix System 5-MC control surface to create a total free flowing environment.

To do that, Ross made the decision to stay in the digital realm, using the Euphonix dual-operator System 5-MC integrated DAW controller as the command center, linked to four Pro Tools running on Mac G5s, three Nuendos on AMD quad PCs and V-Cube for high-resolution projection on the Barco DP 70 projector.

A matrix of Gefen's 4x2 DVI switchers played a vital role in the system's workflow by enabling each of the operators to switch control and screens between the seven main workstations and four Apple Cinema Displays running 1920x1200 resolution. The Gefen DVI switchers interface directly to the Euphonix System 5-MC via GPI switch contacts driven from the console for seamless workflow switching.
