WDR Taps Fairlight Xynergi Systems

German broadcaster Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR) recently installed three more Fairlight Xynergi desktop media creation systems at its facilities in Cologne, for a total of five.

The station installed two Xynergi MPC96 systems with SX-48 MADI interfaces at the end of 2007. Three more systems were added in May, along with a 12 fader Sidecar and two CC-1 upgrades for the DREAM1 Station and Constellation systems. No stranger to Fairlight, WDR has been using the company's MFX3+ disc recorders for several years.

"All of the systems will be connected to Fairlight's SFX Library Server AudioBase 3, which will allow the broadcaster to speed up workflow and share audio files between studios," said Mario Schmitz, Fairlight's head of European Operations.
