Pioneer Post-Pro Invests In Surround Console
Pioneer Corp. has invested in a Euphonix System 5 digital console for Q-tec, a Pioneer-owned post-production facility that handles vido production, on-line editorial, film-to-tape transfer and DVD authoring.
According to Q-tec, it will use the console for mixing audio material for digital broadcast, including high-definition transmissions. Q-tec expects to install the console in early-October.
“The console is intuitive in operation,” says Mr. Morimoto, president of Q-tec, “but offers the most advanced digital features and processing power built into the console’s foundation.”
The facility also owns a Euphonix CS-2000 Digitally Controlled Analog Console, housed in its second studio. A total of 35 System 5’s have been ordered, says the console maker.
