Avid DS Nitris chosen for high-profile HD postproduction

Avid Technology have announced that editorial teams for some of the summer’s most high-profile studio and independent films – including ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’, ‘Collateral’, ‘Riding Giants’, and ‘Alexander’ – have chosen to use the Avid DS Nitris system for HD postproduction.
These teams are using Avid’s most powerful real-time, 10-bit HD finishing system for work that ranges from creating HD versions of the films for director and test-audience preview screenings to outputting HD masters that are used to generate final film prints.
“Avid DS Nitris is having a major impact on the feature film industry, as editors for a growing number of films – from indie hits to Hollywood blockbusters – are recognising the quality, efficiency, and cost-saving benefits of HD postproduction,” said Patrick Ready, Partner at Pivotal Post, a leading Los Angeles Avid equipment and services provider. “We’re seeing increased demand for Avid DS Nitris from top industry productions because the system works so well with existing feature film workflows, especially in the way it conforms the edits and effects created on Avid Film Composer and Media Composer. The system also delivers uncompromising picture quality, giving film editors a high level of accuracy for colour correction and other special effects work, as well as enabling them to output HD masters that look flawless on the big screen.”
