Fairlight announces the new EVO system for integrated recording, editing, mixing and video (31/8/2010)

The new EVO system delivers high end console power with cutting-edge affordability. Prices starting at USD $68,000, it is without question today's big mixer at tomorrow's smart price.

“EVO is a major development for Fairlight, one that continues the path started by FAME, Prodigy and Constellation,” says Tino Fibaek, Fairlight’s General Manager. “Although these products already offer our customers an integrated audio and video solution, we wanted to refine and enhance the mixing part of that system so that we could improve usability. With EVO, we have achieved exactly that – a console that not only addresses the convergence of audio and video, but also delivers large format mixing functionality within the small surface footprint that is typical of post production consoles.”

EVO makes full use of recent innovations from Fairlight including Crystal Core Processing, the SX range of I/O options, and Xynergi self-labelling key technology. In terms of design, the emphasis is placed firmly on giving users fast access to mixing tools. This is achieved through the innovative use of rotary encoders and touch screens that combine to deliver in-line controls and detailed full-colour displays for every fader. The center section is designed around Fairlight's revolutionary Xynergi keys, for full tactile control of recording, editing and mixing.

“EVO's built-in professional monitoring section makes simple sense out of complex surround mixing, and is capable of simultaneous fully automated mixes in multiple formats,” Fibaek adds. “Apart from excellent audio, which has always been the hallmark of Fairlight products, our aim was to deliver massive channel capacity and fast intuitive operation. With 36-bit floating point audio throughout the signal path, users have the headroom and precision for the most demanding applications.”

Aimed at film, video and music production and post production facilities, EVO is the ideal platform for integrated recording, editing, mixing and video. As an integral part of the Fairlight family it is file compatible and operationally similar to existing Fairlight products and provides seamless workflows for virtually all SD and HD file formats. EVO panels can also be fitted into existing Constellation frames, providing existing customers with an easy and convenient upgrade path.

Key Features:

• Integrated Xynergi centre section with self labelling key switches.
• New In-Line Panel (ILP) delivering efficient knob-per-function access to channel parameters
• New Touch screen ‘bridge’ delivering rich graphics and channel feedback
• New fader panels featuring organic, full colour LEDs that deliver enhanced automation feedback and improve the mixing process
• The option of 2,3,4 or 5 bay configuration
• Customised surface panel layout to suit individual requirements – and without a price premium
