Harrison Consoles: MPC5 Film Console

MPC5 Film Console

Every facet of the MPC series has been refined and incorporated into the newest, most feature-complete film console available, the MPC5. 10 touch-sensitive knobs per channel strip, rich displays, long-life switches, premium faders, and lavish center-section facilities make the MPC5 stand head and shoulders above the competition. The MPC5 uses a new extruded aluminum frame with TFT waveform displays over every channel. The surface is highly configurable, with an unlimited frame width to accommodate an unlimited number of faders. The massive DSP power available on the MPC5 is provided via Harrison's revolutionary Xrange DSP system. Many hundreds of channels are available along with Harrison's industry standard Film Monitoring system and multi-operator IKIS Automation platform. The total MPC5 package provides limitless mixing potential for demanding users.

Some of the facilities using an MPC include: Sony Pictures (Hollywood), Universal Studios (Hollywood), ARRI (Germany), MMZ (Germany), CinePostproduction Bavaria (Germany), MosFilm (Russia), Creative Sound (France), Deluxe Sound|Picture (Canada), Ardmore Film Studios (Ireland), Ramoji Film City (India), Shree Balaji (India) and China Film Group. MPCs are installed at film schools worldwide including Full Sail (USA), HFF (Germany), and dffb (Germany). Working on an MPC5 puts you in this elite group.
