Salon Provides Avid Systems To 'The Dark Knight'

Editing equipment hire company Salon has provided Avid Media Composer systems to the new Batman movie, 'The Dark Knight', which was released in the UK last week.
Editor Lee Smith and Assistant John Lee, having used Salon on 'Batman Begins' got in touch with company again when they knew parts of the new film were being shot in the UK.
Salon engineers installed a number of systems in Covent Garden London prior to their arrival, based on the precise specification they had provided so that the editorial team could quite literally step off the plane and head to the cutting room where they were greeted by Salon engineers to check everything was as they required.
After several weeks the whole unit and equipment moved up to Cardington Bedfordshire and in just one day, Salon packed, transported and re-installed all 5 Media Composers, the Unity shared storage and a large film equipment set-up including a 35mmm Steenbeck with Bi-Phase, edit benches and rewinders.
'The Dark Knight' is just one of many large scale productions that have turned to Salon for their high level of technical support and well maintained equipment.
Company Director Nick Long commented: "It is not difficult to hire someone an Avid system, but to provide them with that system tailored to their individual requirements, to provide them with high quality 24/7 support, and to offer them friendly and knowledgeable advice before, during and after hire, that is the Salon approach."
