Bright Systems, Inc., developer of disk recording and data infrastructure technology, has announced that The Gate, Lebanonâ€™s principal post facility, has purchased a BrightDrive media recording system. The Gate will use the new system to provide the data infrastructure for its extended range of post-production services, which includes a new end-to-end DI workflow.
â€œBrightDriveâ€™s advanced media recording technology will serve the heart of our new digital data infrastructure,â€? said Sten Walegren, Managing Director, The Gate. â€œWe chose the Bright option having seen it in action at IBC last year. As well as being impressed by its smooth and fast data delivery speeds, we were confident of first-class support services, particularly since Bright had recently announced their new European support centre in Germany.â€?
The Gate was established in 2001 as Lebanonâ€™s first film processing and telecine service provider. The company manages Kodak Cinelabs Lebanon and has expanded business operations to offer filmmakers as well as advertising and music industries a complete range of digital post services including editing, visual effects and 3D animation. The new BrightDrive Pro2 system with 3 streams of realtime 2k and 36 Terabytes of storage, will enable multiple operators to access and use media concurrently while working within a tightly integrated, highly flexible and powerful digital environment.
A Lasergraphics 2K scanner will be used for scanning selected media from 35 or 16mm negative. All media will be accessed and delivered using the BrightDrive infrastructure, which will also be integrated with Smoke for conforming and dust-busting, flame for visual effects, Lustre for final grading, and a DVC Clip Recorder for output and delivery in any format as required.
