TIGERTIGER POST, Malaysia, Installs BrightDrive Media Recording Infrastructure for New Data-Centric Commercials Workflow(November 24, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-11-24--Bright Systems, Inc., developer of disk recording and data infrastructure technology, has announced that TIGERTIGER POST, Malaysias newest upcoming DI postproduction facilities, has purchased a BrightDrive media recording system for a new commercials workflow. The system will provide a powerful digital media sharing infrastructure for TIGERTIGER POSTs extensive range of digital intermediate applications, enabling them to work in a streamlined and highly effective, collaborative environment.
BrightDrive will have 30 TB of storage and will be connected to a Lasergraphics Director film scanner, a da Vinci Resolve R250 color corrector, an Autodesk Flame 2009, and Final Cut Pro editing systems.
TIGERTIGER POST is a new company set up in October 2008 by Sunita Petrus and Al Isaac, owners of Malaysias leading post house, Superwonderful Films. Having already worked with high-profile agency projects and established a strong company image, Sunita and Al wanted to offer a different approach to the SD-only telecine chains and tape-based processes traditionally used for commercials post in Malaysia. They launched TIGERTIGER POST inspired by what they saw at some of the leading post houses in Singapore and The Philippines that use data-centric workflows based on BrightDrive media recording systems. The objective was to benefit from the many cost and time efficiencies that can be achieved through data-centric processes, and also to profit from new formats such as HD, RED and P2. The company has already completed five commercials projects and is now scanning and color grading for several local feature films.
"Using BrightDrive media recording as the heart of our data-centric workflow will give greater creative freedom, with instant access to scanned or imported material from all the creative workstations," said Sunita Petrus, owner, TIGERTIGER. "BrightDrive is easy to use, reliable and will enable our operators to work together in a very flexible environment."
BrightDrive enables digital media to be shared across all postproduction and DI workflows including ingest, conform, editing, effects, 2D and 3D animation, color grading and compositing, irrespective of the mix of operating systems in use. Ethernet, Fibre Channel and video networks can be used, delivering media at speeds greater than real-time and in any resolution.
BrightDrive was supplied by The Media Village, Singapore, Bright Systems business partner for SE Asia. The Media Village will also provide first-line support and after-sales services.
