In an introduction that is poised to dramatically open up the equipment choices available to today’s media creators, Fairlight today launched the new XYNERGI Media Production Centre.
Xynergi organizes and delivers a suite of all the media processing tools needed for high end audio for video production in all widely used surround formats. Xynergi is based around a completely new concept in tactile control which harnesses the awesome ‘green’ processing power of Fairlight’s CC-1 digital media engine.
The Xynergi controller features a unique implementation of self labeling key switches which are able to display full colour images, icons or text to provide intelligent control
over the entire recording, editing and mixing process. In addition the controller can support any type of language or icon driven menu structure with an ‘on-demand’ QWERTY keyboard for routine naming tasks and immediate access to MS OfficeTM tools such as email, WordTM and ExcelTM. The controller also features eight touch sensitive rotary controllers and multiple soft keys arranged around a color control zone known as the “pad”. These can be used to support Xynergi’s sophisticated mix automation system as well as precise control over extensive signal processing facilities which include multiband EQs, three stage dynamics, multi dimensional panning and auxiliary sends.
The real essence of the controller lies in its ability to intelligently know what mode the
operator is in, presenting ONLY the functions relevant to the desired mode whilst hiding those that aren’t. The result is less keystrokes, more control and greater productivity all of which contribute to an enhanced creative operational experience. “The Xynergi Media Production Centre brings together the most powerful, versatile and scalable media production system in the world today” announced John Lancken, Chief Executive Officer, Fairlight. “This revolutionary new control interface literally puts multidimensional tactile control at the fingertips of the creative community. When combined with the CC-1 engine, Xynergi dramatically increases the creative firepower that engineers, artists and producers have to work with.”
The Xynergi Media Production Centre will be debuting at this year’s IBC Exhibition in
Amsterdam from September 7th to 11th with prices starting from under €20,000.
