PostWorks, New York delivers ‘Ironman’ championship HD editorial services

PostWorks, New York provided HD editorial and finishing services as well as location audio recording for this year’s “Ford Ironman World Championship” for NBC producers.

Shot each October on location in Kailua-Kona, HI, this year’s Ironman championship was the first to air in HD. PostWorks, with Panasonic Varicam cameras, shot, edited and mastered the show, said Ironman executive producer Peter Henning.

Throughout the past several years, Henning has worked with PostWorks’ senior audio mixer and sound designer Billy Gardner on the event. As part of the location production team during last year's championship in Hawaii, Gardner recorded hours of sound from the event.

For NBC, Dick Ebersol was the executive producer, and Billy Matthews was the producer of the broadcast. For Ironman, Phil Parrish served as the project's lead editor, working on two Avid Adrenaline systems for offline editorial and mastering the show via Avid's Adrenaline HD.

Additional post credits include senior associate producers Eric Begley, Russ McCarroll and Summer Zemel. For PostWorks, credits include general manager Bill Ivie, senior technical advisor Chris Cameron and senior account manager Stephen Ostrow.
