Cinedeck LLC has partnered with Aarmadillo Inc. to expand business development and technical consulting in the media and entertainment industry across North America for Cinedeck’s range of HD/2K/4K media record, ingest and transcode platforms.

Along with Aarmadillo, Cinedeck has also recruited Miles Thomas (pictured) to support business development among government agencies and houses of worship.
Run by Colin Ritchie, Aarmadillo is known for its hardware and software products across North America, produced from its Los Angeles base. The Aarmadillo line-up also includes Michael Demucci, formerly director of business development at The Camera House in Los Angeles, and Gary Thomson, who was most recently VP of engineering at EFILM Hollywood (a Deluxe company).
For over 10 years Aarmadillo has introduced private media networks, on-set recorders and dailies systems, 3D workstations, mobile video and rendering trucks, as well as DI colour correction suite design, to facilities across North America. The company has a wealth of knowledge in 2D/3D digital pipeline development, and provides innovative solutions that solve production challenges in HD/2K/4K production and post.
Also arriving at Cinedeck is Miles Thomas, who brings over 25 years of experience in broadcast sales to Cinedeck, having worked for major names in the business.
Mr Thomas began his broadcast career in the satellite distribution industry with IDB, now GlobeCast NA, before moving into equipment sales at Harris Corp, Evertz and, most recently, integration solutions company Advantage Video Systems. Thomas, who is based in Los Angeles, will work in tandem with Aarmadillo and Cinedeck’s Atlanta-based sales engineer Daine Pearson.
"Content creators across the media and entertainment industry wrestle daily with the issue of how best to transition assets from production into post, and need fast, keenly-priced reliable technology to assist them," said Charles D’Autremont, founder and CEO of Cinedeck. "With the addition of Aarmadillo and Miles Thomas, Cinedeck has a team that brings more in-depth technical knowledge to support each customer’s quest for greater efficiency and productivity with our systems."
"Cinedeck is a fabulous, forward-thinking addition to the Aarmadillo portfolio," said Colin Ritchie, CEO of Aarmadillo. "Traditionally, set-to-post solutions have proven either very expensive or cumbersome. Cinedeck’s one-box, no-fuss product approach represents a far more cost-effective offering than the current crop of solutions, and puts us in a great position to engage customers in serious conversations about the future of more efficient HD/2K/4K workflows."
Cinedeck products include the RX3G and MX recorders, supporting 4K, JPEG2000 workflows and the latest international broadcast delivery standards.
