(Redondo Beach CA – 19- September 2007) Digital Ordnance, known for the manufacture and supply of reliable data centric solutions for post production has announced that LAIKA Entertainment of Portland OR has become the latest company to adopt the Frame Thrower™ to streamline its clients' viewing, review and approval process.
John Pierson, LAIKA Director of R&D comments "We're in the midst of a major expansion and had initially considered building our own product for this very specific but important area. The Frame Thrower™ more than met our needs at a much lower cost and, since its installation, has streamlined our workflow significantly".
David Rowe, LAIKA Systems Support Manager added "The Frame Thrower™ was very impressive from the outset. It's very easy to use and our artists love the jog/shuttle control panel. We have integrated the system into our dailies process and it simply works"
Digital Ordnance Founder & CEO Daryll Strauss was very happy to announce another Frame Thrower™ sale and comments "We appreciate the opportunity to deal early on with a growing facility doing such exciting work, we look forward to a long relationship addressing their needs.
