IDEAS Upgrades Edit Systems, Increases Capacity

By John Lux

[fusion_dropcap class="fusion-content-tb-dropcap"]I[/fusion_dropcap]DEAS announced an upgrade to its post production studio with the installation of two new edit systems and media network at the downtown Orlando Studio. Two new MAC-based editing stations and an Avid ISIS 5000 media network have been added. Both new edit systems will feature Avid Media Composer hardware and software while one of the units will also feature Final Cut Pro X. Additionally, one of the systems will be enhanced with DaVinci Resolve color correction software. IDEAS currently also has an edit suite with Final Cut Pro 7.

“This is a monumental step forward for us when it comes to quality, efficiency, and client service. Previously we had two PC-based Avid systems and our current Final Cut Pro system,” John Lux, COO of IDEAS, remarked. “Upgrading the two Avids to MAC-based systems allows us to add Final Cut Pro X and the DaVinci color correction software to our workflow. This will give us the flexibility and efficiency that few facilities have. It will allow us to offer a superior product, faster, which makes for a better experience for our clients and allows us to exceed expectations. Whether it’s a television series, independent film, corporate communication piece, or government training video, anytime we can deliver a better product faster, our clients are happy.”

Avid Media Composer 6 is the most versatile tool for professional video editing with native 64-bit operation, increased performance, is able to manage and edit stereoscopic 3D projects, includes an easier and more efficient new user interface, and a more integrated ProRes workflow. The Avid ISIS 5000 sets the benchmark for real time, media-optimized shared storage with Avid’s high standards for real time editorial workflow support and stable operation. Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve is the world’s most advanced color grading system combining powerful features and real time performance. Finally, Final Cut Pro X features faster editing, enhanced media organization, and better file-based workflows with the ability to support image sizes from SD to 4K.
