France Télévisions has chosen Fairlight’s EVO audio post-production system to upgrade 25 of its regional studios. Recent changes to France Télévisions’ production and distribution of regional news and programmes required a complete workflow solution that seamlessly integrated audio post into a news production environment. Following a detailed technical and operational evaluation process as part of a European Union tender, Fairlight EVO was chosen by a France Télévisions expert review panel. EVO’s tactile control surface, high speed processing power of its CC-1 media engine and the customisation opportunity of the new iCan technology coupled with management tools such as TTWASS (Total Tapeless Automation System Suite) and strong service support from French Fairlight distributor Broadcast Architech reinforced France Télévisions decision, according to the Australian systems manufacturer. Jean-Claude Kathriner, CEO of Fairlight commented: “We are delighted that France Télévisions is joining the increasing number of broadcasters around the world selecting Fairlight technology for their audio post production requirements. We are looking forward to working closely with France Télévisions and Broadcast Architech to ensure smooth implementation of the systems.” Installation of the first regional studios is scheduled for January 2013. www.broadcast-architech.comwww.fairlight.com.au
