First, data is ingested. Next, we gather the media rushes, copy them and back them up. In preparation for post production, we take the time to review the footage to verify the integrity and quality of your data. We analyze whether there are timecode errors and we can easily warn the crew to pay attention and ensure optimal synchronization between sound and camera. We then produce log sheets, checksums and LUT’s in order to prepare the dailies and we export the low-resolution files (With LUT’s applied) into Avid to synchronize the sound. Finally, we export the dailies and transfer them to the post production team.
Once the backups have been tested, we format the cards and send them back to the camera crew. The backups are also saved to LTO, as we all know, that Hard Disks aren’t insurable…. And we enjoy being fully ensured. You will, too.
