Leading German broadcaster Hessischer Rundfunk selects Avid solutions to accelerate content production and increase collaboration.

Avid announces that Hessischer Rundfunk, one of Germany’s leading public broadcasters, has selected 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.

“Hessischer Rundfunk’s investment demonstrates the growing momentum Avid is building in the European market,” says Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President Worldwide Field Operations at Avid. “By choosing Avid, Hessischer Rundfunk now has the innovative tools it needs to improve operational efficiency and quickly adapt to changes and demands in audience preferences, today and in the future.”

By implementing 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. The new System 5 Fusion expandable digital console now lets Hessischer Rundfunk’s engineers control content from up to five digital audio workstations using a single control surface, while delivering premium sound quality and performance.

“With S5 Fusion, Interplay, and Pro Tools 11, Avid has established a fully integrated file-based workflow for audio post production,” states Juergen Winkler, head of IT and project management at Hessischer Rundfunk.

“Our collaboration with Avid has been fantastic since the very beginning,” adds 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.”
