New Zealand’s Digipost acquires second Grass Valley Spirit 2K DataCine
Digipost has purchased a Grass Valley Spirit 2K DataCine system from Thomson for its new $6.5 million post-production facility in Auckland, New Zealand, to offer clients more film scanning and digital intermediate (DI) services.
The 17-year-old company has a growing client list that includes almost all of the major TV production companies, advertising agencies and feature film producers working in the region. Digipost will use the new Spirit to transfer 35mm film dailies to SD and HD video for commercials and motion picture projects. It will also perform final grading and 2K scanning for feature film DI work, as well as other projects that require multiresolution outputs.
The new system will work in tandem with a classic Spirit system already in use.
