Hessischer Rundfunk selects Avid

Hessischer Rundfunk, one of Germany’s leading public broadcasters, has chosen Avid solutions to power its post-production workflow. The upgrade empowers Hessischer Rundfunk to benefit from the Avid MediaCentral Platform through enhanced collaboration, accelerated production, and producing and distributing higher-quality content to millions of German citizens via four radio stations and one television channel.

By implementing open and tightly integrated workflows, including two System 5 Fusion digital audio mixing consoles and a Pro Tools|HDX system with Interplay integration, Hessischer Rundfunk has streamlined its production and distribution processes, greatly increasing efficiency.

“Our collaboration with Avid has been fantastic since the very beginning,” stated project manager Joachim Jacob. “Pro Tools 11 gives us the ability to import many types of video material without conversion, allowing us to work more quickly and efficiently. Plus, we are looking forward to using EUCON 3 with our S5 Fusion for complete hardware and software integration.”
