DigiTurk uses Marquis’ X2Pro for audio finishing10 June 2013
Turkish broadcaster DigiTurk has invested in X2Pro Audio Convert licenses, it has been announced. The Istanbul based facility will now use five copies of Marquis’ X2Pro for audio finishing as part of its post production workflow for all its in-house channels.
X2Pro uses Marquis’ Media Highway, the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products to integrate Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, delivering integration between the applications. Previously, DigiTurk used Final Cut Pro 7, however, following an upgrade to Final Cut Pro X, the company needed to export and send audio to Pro Tools for audio finishing. Marquis’ X2Pro was selected, and will now be used for work on TV programmes, movies and series channels.
“X2Pro’s functionality allows users to utilise the full advantages of Final Cut Pro X and Avid Pro Tools,” explained Tom Hassall, marketing manager, Marquis Broadcast. “The product saves time and improves the efficiency of audio finishing and now many leading organisations across the globe are enjoying the benefits that X2Pro brings to post production workflows.”
The software works by converting the exported Final Cut Pro X XML into an AAF file, which Avid Pro Tools can open as a session. Using the enhanced metadata in XML 1.2 from Final Cut Pro X, X2Pro provides a high fidelity conversion to a Pro Tools session, with planned support for audio gain and key frames. X2Pro allows detail control over the conversion of audio roles in Final Cut Pro X to Pro Tools tracks, allowing sound designers and mixers to start working immediately.
