Da Vinci Systems has created the da Vinci Professional Services division to support the increased demand for system interoperation, storage optimization and remote operations at post-production facilities worldwide, the company said.
The company plans to tap its expertise in digital formats, near-set and mobile color grading and digital intermediate workflows in executing this new level of service. Jim Mackrell, da Vinci's service marketing manager, will lead the new division. Rohit Gupta, who has more than a decade of software development and project management experience with da Vinci and other companies, will work with customers in Europe and Asia. He will be based in Singapore.
Da Vinci Professional Services are being offered as part of or as extensions to existing customer support agreements. The new service offering coincides with a workforce realignment in Singapore in which da Vinci engineering operations have been consolidated with similar operations in the region. Engineering development will continue in both the United States and Singapore.
