ROOT6 Technology announced that London based post-production and new media company DGP has installed ContentAgent-XR at the heart of DGP Expresso, a new fast-turnaround facility for encoding and distributing video deliverables at its Greek Street, Soho premises.
?Our business is split pretty evenly beween conventional post-production and mainstream DVD creation, explains DGP co-founder Julian Day. ?The idea behind DGP Expresso is that it will serve both parts of our established business and help to attract new clients.
A lot of the activity at DGP Expresso will involve video file encoding and transcoding to a variety of formats and delivering these via email, ftp or DVD, a task for which ROOT6 Technologys ContentAgent is purpose designed.
?Weve a longstanding relationship with root6, said Day, ?and considerable respect for its knowledge and expertise. For us, ContentAgent is a fantastic solution. We can easily set up workflows so it takes material directly from our Avids and takes care of all the coding and delivery.
?Clearly the HD capabilities are also exciting for us as well be creating HD DVD material for the next generation of disc formats.
With its existing DVD production credits ranging from Lord of The Rings:The Return of The King, to hit TV series such as The Sopranos and Hustle, it is certain that DGP will continue to be at the forefront as new formats evolve.
?When Mark Gardner and I formed DGP ten years ago we were convinced then that diversity was the key to success, concludes Day. ?That approach has been fully justified and DGP Expresso will complement our existing activities perfectly.
