Acquisition is important and at GMi we have seen some fantastic new toys in our camera department over the last 4 years. However, shots are only half the picture, editing is the rest of the story – your story. And if you ask our Post team – it is the most important part of the story!
To enable us to keep bringing you the best in Post means we are constantly evaluating when to upgrade and 2014 is it for Post, with the building and commissioning of our new Avid workstation.
By combining workstation grade components, the new Thunderbolt 2 RAID interface, dedicated on-board RAID and the latest from nVidia Quadro video cards we are able to install the latest editor from Avid – Media Composer 8.1, cutting edge compositing with Boris RED 5.5 as well as the more well known Adobe tool box of post applications.
With data access speeds capable of multiple tracks of simultaneous 4K playback and blistering render times, we see this platform as the basis of Post at GMi for the next 3 years.
We are excited – come in and see us for a coffee and chat about your next production using one of the few Avid Edit Stations outside the metro area, and find out why 99% of all motion picture production is done on an Avid!
