New Fairlight HDMI Monitor Interface

Blackmagic Design now lets customers use any HDMI or SDI television or computer monitor with the large Fairlight Studio Consoles.

The Fairlight HDMI Monitor Interface lets customers use their own HDMI monitor with Fairlight 2, 3, 4, or 5 bay studio consoles for direct visual feedback. It works by converting the console’s ethernet data into HDMI and SDI, making it compatible with virtually any computer display or broadcast monitor. Just like the Fairlight Console LCD Monitor, users will be able to see channel strip information, levels, equalization, dynamics processing, plug-in interfaces and more.

Customers can also display the video program output from the timeline. The interface input can be switched to SDI so customers can see the talent up close for checking lip sync while mixing. The compact design is small enough to fit behind desks or monitors tucked away out of sight.

Blackmagic says Fairlight’s modular components can be dropped into a desk, making it easy to upgrade existing suites and furniture with Fairlight hardware. Each component comes with a mechanical drawing and cut out pattern that can be used as a guide, making it easy to modify their furniture to accommodate Fairlight hardware. Brackets and frames are also available for securely mounting the modules in place, ensuring a perfect, professional fit. The optional Fairlight HDMI Monitor Interface lets customers connect their own display, providing similar functionality as the Fairlight Console LCD Monitor.
