The network will use two Avid System 5 Fusion digital audio mixing consoles and a Pro Tools|HDX system with Interplay integration. As a result, Avid said the network has streamlined its production and distribution processes, increasing efficiency.
Before the upgrade, the main production facility was equipped with an aging Studer mixing console. Due to the lack of integration with Hessischer Rundfunk’s audio/visual workstations, flexibility and control were limited.
The new System 5 Fusion expandable digital console now lets engineers control content from up to five digital audio workstations using a single control surface, while delivering premium sound quality and performance to audiences.
“Pro Tools 11 gives us the ability to import many types of video material without conversion, allowing us to work more quickly and efficiently, said Joachim Jacob, project manager at the network.
