Digipost, one of New Zealand’s most experienced post production and visual effects companies, has purchased a Grass Valley™ Spirit 2K DataCine® system from Thomson for its new post production facility in Auckland.
The new system, which will work in tandem with the classic Spirit system already in use, will enable the company to offer clients more access to the highest quality film transfer services, and complete projects faster than it ever could before.
The company, which has been in operation for 17 years, has a growing client list that includes all of the major television production companies, advertising agencies and feature film producers working in the region.
“We have used a Spirit DataCine in our current facility for the past three and a half years and are pleased with its performance and reliability,” said Garry Little, Managing Director of Digipost. “The introduction of the Spirit 2K raises the standard further.”
The new Spirit 2K will provide the highest quality real time transfer of 35mm film for commercials and motion picture projects, and it will also perform 2K scanning for feature film work at 24 fps.
The Spirit 2K will provide a fast and cost effective path for film makers to scan and then grade in the non-linear environment of Digipost’s new Baselight Four system and digital intermediate grading theatre.
“It’s clear to us that from our past three years of experience that the Spirit is the number one choice of all local production companies” says Little, “The introduction of the Spirit 2K coupled with the talent we have on board will be an exciting combination. We’re expecting to be even busier.”

I'm considering upgrading to a new version of Microsoft Word soon. It's the same as the current one apart from it being able to write press releases about itself.
