Fairlightus and comprehensive technical group to host Crystal Core showcase and training in Atlanta 09/03/07
FairlightUS, the exclusive distributor of Fairlight digital audio and video technologies in the United States, will host a special showcase and training seminar on the groundbreaking Crystal Core (CC-1) digital media engine at Comprehensive Technical Group (CTG) in Atlanta on March 14th. The demonstrations will cover all areas of recording, editing, ADR, sound design, sound for picture tips and techniques and the business of professional audio.
The event will be preceded by a sneak preview and cocktail reception at R!OT Atlanta on March 13th at 6:00PM. Both events are open to audio professionals working in the post production, broadcast and music recording markets and will be held in close cooperation with CTG, FairlightUSâ€™s distribution and support partner in the southeastern United States.
Steve Rance, President of FairlightUS, told us, â€œWe welcome audio professionals from all fields, whether they are Fairlight users or not. The CC-1 engine represents a quantum leap forward in media processing, versatility and scalability and it will certainly be worth a look for those who have not already witnessed it at AES! In addition, as FairlightUS is newly formed last month, I am looking forward to meeting our customers and other members of the audio community to learn from them what we need to do to serve them better!â€�
FairlightUS was founded last month, having acquired MediaGear, the previous Fairlight distributor in North America. The FairlightUS team includes Steve Rance, President; Philippe Guichard, National Sales Manager; Michael Haprov, National Technical Support Manager and Michael Mueller, East Coast Sales Manager. Rance and Mueller are based in the New York Metro Area and Guichard and Haprov will head the West Coast operation from company headquarters in Pasadena, California. The company also shares strong ties with CTG in Atlanta, headed up by Steve McCormick, Vice President.
â€œFairlightâ€™s CC-1 Engine provides audio pros with more power than ever before imaginable,â€� McCormick explained. â€œWe believe the capabilities it enables end users will provide members of the dynamic and creative Atlanta audio community with even greater capability to advance their craft!â€�
Fairlightâ€™s new patent-pending CC-1 audio production engine, based on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) silicon technology, comprehensively obsoletes DSP/Time Slice Bus architectures and delivers quantum performance gains by shrinking hardware into a single purpose-built media processing chip. Crystal Core technology delivers improved quality, unparalleled flexibility, scalability, enlarged system scope, and previously unattainable price performance gains. Pricing and Availability:
