PostWorks, New York Picks Pro-Bel For Increased Throughput
PostWorks, New York has enlisted Pro-Bel to help it cope with its expanding business requirements. The post house, which also owns technology and services rental business Orbit Digital, is a long-term Pro-Bel customer and is upgrading the heart of its Melville, N.Y. facility.

PostWorks recently completed work on projects including Michael Moore’s “Sicko,” Jon Sayles’ “Honeydripper” and Jonathan Demme’s “Man from Plains”.

The company has purchased two Sirius Gold routers—one equipped 320 x 320 HD/SD and the other 320 x 320 AES/64 x 64 analog audio. It has also purchased two analog video Freeways, one 128 x 128 and the second 48 x 128. It has also significantly upgraded the capabilities of its Aurora router control system to provide new facility-wide flexibility.

“Over the last three/four years our business has really grown. Alongside this is the demand for greater system capacity due to new technology that we are experiencing,” said Corey Stewart, PostWorks director of Systems Engineering. “New HDCAM SR VTRs have more i/o, 12 channels of audio, 4:4:4 RGB dual link i/o as well as format conversion outputs. Our episodic TV clients are using SR for the audio channels and our feature film clients are utilizing SR’s 4:4:4 RGB interface for digital intermediate work. This all adds up to the need for greater routing capacity.”
