German public broadcaster Hessischer Rundfunk has selected Avid solutions to power its post production workflow, with the aim of accelerating content production, increasing collaboration, and distributing higher-quality content via radio and TV.
The broadcaster has implemented two System 5 Fusion digital audio mixing consoles from Avid, as well as a Pro Tools HDX system with Interplay integration. The new System 5 Fusion expandable digital console allows engineers to control content from up to five digital audio workstations using a single control surface.
“Hessischer Rundfunk’s investment demonstrates the growing momentum Avid is building in the European market,” said Jeff Rosica, senior vice president, worldwide field operations at Avid. “By choosing Avid, Hessischer Rundfunk now has the innovative tools it needs to improve operational efficiency and quickly adapt to changes and demands in audience preferences, today and in the future.”
“Our collaboration with Avid has been fantastic since the very beginning,” added project manager Joachim Jacob. “Pro Tools 11 gives us the ability to import many types of video material without conversion, allowing us to work more quickly and efficiently. Plus, we are looking forward to using EUCON 3 with our S5 Fusion for complete hardware and software integration.”
