Digital Workflow (DIT) & Media Management

With the bulk of modern cameras shooting to solid state media or hard drive rather than tape, on-set media management is absolutely crucial. Our Digital Imaging Technicians (DITs) are trained to double backup all recorded media on separate secure RAID hard drives as soon as they receive content from the camera & audio departments.

Once your content is backed up in two discreet locations, the process of logging and (if necessary) transcoding to the preferred editing format begins. You can rest assured that your footage will be safe, secure and meticulously organized so that by the time we get to post-production, we’re ready to hit the ground running.
