Why did they come to us?
When Superyacht Media’s workload increased, they realised their current network, edit suites and data management wouldn’t be able to cope. As we have experts in production, servers and storage, they got in touch with us to find out how they could upgrade their entire production workflow.

What did they need?
Superyacht were looking to upgrade their entire tapeless production workflow, and needed a solution for managing their digital assets from mobile workstations in the field.

How did we help?
Our team assessed all aspects of their workflow, including server load, internal bandwidth and the overall working environment. We suggested a solution including dual Xserves with Infortrend RAID storage, and a Final Cut Server system to keep track of digital assets from their mobile edit suites. We also tested the system, making changes wherever needed so that the company’s new asset management setup worked perfectly, and provided onsite training so staff were up to speed.

What were the benefits?
Jeff Brown, SYM’s creative director was particularly impressed with the automated outputs - “Being able to get multiple different formats, frame sizes and bit-rates straight out of the server in one click, without tying up our machines, is already starting to save time and allows us to deliver both rushes and final cuts quicker to clients.”
