France Télévisions studios upgraded with Fairlight systems

European broadcast giant France Télévisions has installed Fairlight EVO post production systems in 25 of its regional studios.

Recent changes to the broadcaster’s production and distribution processes for its regional news services and other programmes required a complete workflow solution that could seamlessly integrate audio post in 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. The EVO’s tactile control surface, the processing power of its CC-1 Media Engine and the customisation options offered by the new iCan technology were the main reasons why France Télévisions picked the system.

Its ability to handle complex workflows through management tools such as TTWASS (Total Tapeless Automation System Suite), together with service support from Broadcast Architech – Fairlight’s distribution partner in France – also helped the company decide to partner with Fairlight.

Jean-Claude Kathriner, CEO of Fairlight, said: “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.”
