Also: MBC Group upgrades facilities
Vfx software maker The Foundry has launched Storm, a new RED Digital Cinema workflow product designed to address the growing complexity of shooting digitally with a single intuitive solution.
With the Middle East so much in the news, all eyes are on the region’s broadcasters. One of them, Dubai-based MBC Group, has upgraded its facilities with the purchase of a Quantel Genetic Engineering shared workflow infrastructure for its three Quantel eQ online finishing systems. The deal also includes a Sam, which enables other edit, graphics and audio workstations to benefit from the sharing. “Last-minute jobs are a daily issue with some channels such as our Al Arabiya 24-hour news channel,” said MBC post-production manager Keith Dallison. “Genetic Engineering will improve our efficiency giving us complete flexibility on which job is finished in which suite, or if necessary we can put all three eQs onto the same project.”
