TORONTO - Deluxe|Sound & Picture has purchase a dual-operator Harrison MPC4-D digital film console along with a Harrison SeriesTwelve. The MPC4-D is a large-format console featuring "wide view" TFT displays, Harrison's PreView display, the company's patented motorized joysticks, and its Digital Tools Card with film-specific plug-ins.
While many facilities are replacing older analog boards with newer digital consoles, Deluxe is already looking to the next generation of digital boards. The new Harrison consoles replace two digital Euphonix System 5 consoles, both of which will move into Todd-AO's Lantana facility.
Ed Ballard, technical manager for Deluxe, explains that his decision was based on Harrison's features, high-quality audio and proven reliability. "Adding Harrison's proven reliability to such exclusive features as wide view TFT displays, PreView waveform with a complete overview of all channel parameters, 40-bit Wide Pipe digital.engine, and the Digital Tools Card with film-specific plug-ins makes Harrison a great choice for a large format film console in today's world."
