EFILM Equips Facility With SGI Visualization Systems
Hollywood-based digital film laboratory EFILM upgraded its facilities with the purchase of three SGI Onyx 3400 visualization systems, 30 TB of SGI Total Performance 9400 storage and the high-speed connectivity to link its three color-timing suites with three simultaneous streams. EFILM's recent projects include the digital mastering of films such as "Spy Kids 2," "XXX" and "Blue Crush."

EFILM is using the SGI equipment to create digital intermediates, which include high-resolution scanning, color correction, laser film recording and video mastering. Using proprietary software developed on the SGI IRIX operating system, EFILM can create one high-resolution digital distribution master that can be used for film output, digital cinema releases and home video, all meeting national and international theatrical and video delivery requirements.

EFILM cited the SGI visualization technology's reliable data speed, flexibility and the open-system benefits that the SGI IRIX operating environment provides for EFILM's research and development cycle as factors in the purchase.
