Fairlight Releases Dream 2 Version 1.5


Fairlight have announced the release of Dream 2 Software Version 1.5. Stuart DeMarias Fairlight’s Sales and Marketing Director, told us, “Fairlight’s Dream 2 platform delivers an integrated suite of production tools not found in any other product to date. For years now many companies have talked about the convergence of audio and video but none have even come close to delivering on their promise of a truly open tape less workflow. No other system takes away the worry and headache of plugging lots of multi vendor boxes together to create a true audio for video post production system. Why go thru the pain and expense and why would anyone settle for anything less? The DREAM II delivers lower cost of ownership across the whole range of Fairlight systems and sets a new benchmark for HD compliant media creation systems.�
Here’s what Fairlight have to say in their press release…
Packed with over 50 new features, the new software delivers a convergence of audio and video never seen before in any audio production platform.
