Digital Workflow (DIT)

Without a doubt, we are in the golden age of digital here in the world of video production. Long gone are the days of fiddling with film or tape. Digital reigns now, and for good reason: it’s relatively easy to use and there are no restrictions with physical media. But keeping digital data and footage safe means that solid media management practices and qualified DIT’s, or digital imaging technicians, are as important as ever.

With the advent of digital technology, there’s also been a surge in the amount of workflows available to capture content. That’s why we pride ourselves on staying on top of the latest camera data technologies here at ECG. Whether you’re a seasoned pro when it comes to codecs, bit rate and color space or you’re not sure what those even mean, you can trust our in-house crew of self proclaimed camera nerds to bring our comprehensive digital video workflow to all our sets. That ensures not only maximum quality for our clients, but also secure backups of all recorded content, every step of the way.

Digital Workflows & Media Formats Supported:

  • RED One/Epic/Scarlet (8K, 4K, 2K & HD)
  • Arri Alexa (Raw, ProRes & 10-bit uncompressed)
  • Blackmagic URSA (BRAW & Prores) 
  • AVC-Intra/AVCHD
  • P2
  • DSLR (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and Blackmagic models supported)
  • DigiBeta/BetaSP
  • HDV

After the footage is double backed up onto separate hard drives on set, we upload all the footage to our in-house SAN network where all the data safely lives for the duration of the project. From there, our superstar post team either dives right on into the edit, or starts transcoding the footage to a preferred editing format. Either way, with well managed data, our editors are ready to hit the ground running every time.

Digital workflow is one of the most important aspects of video production. Done right, it saves you and our production team from some incredible headaches down the road. Only trust your digital footage to professionals. Contact us today!
