News Image
Avid has announced that its solutions will be used to power the post-production of this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Avid Elite partner VIDELIO – Cap'Ciné is once again providing post-production facilities for "Le Grand Journal de Canal +", Orange Cinema Series, TV Festival and L'Oreal, which will produce festival coverage airing on France's Orange TV, YouTube, Dailymotion, Canal Plus and L'Oreal Website.

Broadcast worldwide, viewers will have a front row seat to live interviews with talent and behind-the-scenes crew, red carpet footage, press conferences and film reviews.

The on-location editing teams will employ the Avid MediaCentral platform to provide a seamless workflow for efficient running of the production. Four centralized ISIS® storage systems will be installed to provide power, reliability and storage capacity to sustain real-time workflows in the demanding environment. Two Avid AirSpeed 5000 acquisition servers are also being utilised for their ingest and playout capability, slow motion playback and support for third party editing systems. All 26 editing stations will be equipped with Avid Media Composer software. Designed to handle high volumes of disparate file based media, the software complements the nature of the event, which calls for quick turn-arounds and fast delivery times.

Tom Cordiner, vice president of International Sales, Avid, comments: "The Cannes Festival is the most prestigious film event in the world and we are delighted that its key content supplier has chosen the industry's leading solutions to support them. Avid products enable our customers to perform at the highest level and we are honored to be participating in this major event."
