Midnight Transfer Selects CLIPSTER, DVS-SAN for 2K Dailies Workflow

3/24/2005 - Midnight Transfer chooses CLIPSTER and DVS-SAN for 2K dailies workflow DVS' supplies central real-time storage, near-line storage and CLIPSTER systems to the Soho based dailies specialist. London: the Soho based company, Midnight Transfer has purchased 2 CLIPSTER systems and a DVS-SAN real-time DI storage from DVS' reseller Root6. The system at Midnight Transfer is being used for scanning and preparing 2K rushes to tight deadlines, before versioning 2K color graded images in HD to tape.

The process of scanning in 2K, audio-syncing, editing and grading the incoming rushes happens first thing in the morning with the resulting HD tape being available to the film team for lunchtime screenings. The CLIPSTER systems are used for editing, distributing, audio-syncing and versioning the footage. The large real-time DVS-SAN supported by near-line storage forms the heart of the DI dailies workflow at Midnight.

Neil Harris, MD of Midnight Transfer: "After extensive market research we found that the combination of Clipster with the high-bandwidth central DI storage of the DVS-SAN, fitted our requirements exactly. Central storage and I/O are 'mission critical' components; we're in very good hands with DVS' solid, proven technology."

Hans-Ulrich Weidenbruch, MD of DVS: "We're delighted that Midnight Transfer chose the combination of Clipster and DVS-SAN for their dailies workflow. We're extremely happy to be partnering such a forward-thinking company."

Midnight Transfer was formed in 1991 to provide a dailies service to film makers. With its latest investments, the company not only has not only brought the latest DI technology in house but is ideally positioned to provide a complete dailies and DI deliverables service to its customers.
