E Q U I P M E N T

Our Avid Media Composer system is constantly upgraded to the latest version and runs on a super worksation with Terrabytes of external Sata and Firewire800 drives playing out to a full HD JVC monitor with Matrox Digital IO giving HDSDI and HDMI input and output. Currently running the latest v6 software with full HD and 3D capabilities.
Whether you need online or offline editing, you can mix and match media of different formats, codecs, resolutions, and frame rates, and enjoy real-time HD broadcast-quality playback. We also keep a wide range of effects from Boris and Magic Bullet handy.

 

T H E M O B I L E O P T I O N:

Our Media Composer 6 software on a Macbook Pro has been taken to Paris, Dubai and Rome. Designed mainly for offline work. The interface is identical to the MediaComposer and projects can be seemlessly moved from one system to another for on-lining. The entire system fits in a backpack and follows me around wherever I go!

H I S T O R Y:

Nick trained on 3 machine Hi-Band U-matic edit suites moving on quickly to the "new" Beta SP format. He began using the Ampex ACE25 edit controller and quickly mastered the Sony 910 and 2000 controllers. He was among the first to explore the possibilities of pre-read editing on early D2 machines, creating complex graphic sequences on a fairly basic system at a time when Harry was all the rage (and very expensive!)

The move to non-linear editing came when Nick bought his own D-Vision non-linear editor. A simple, but effective off-line system based on an ordinary PC and many times cheaper than the then emerging Avid machines. The D-Vision was very well suited to long-form documentaries and was still doing stirling service until a few years ago.

In the meantime as a freelance editor Nick got to know both Avid Media-Composer and Media100 as well as Sony DigiBeta linear suites.

His work now consists mostly of doing both off-line and on-line on Avid and Media100 with graphics, special effects and Title sequences completed on Boris FX and AfterFX
