(Melbourne, Australia--June 13, 2011) XDT, a developer of advanced software-based solutions for post production and digital film, today announced that DIGIPOST New Zealand has chosen the Catapult 2K for its next generation file based transfer and review requirements. The 40TB Catapult 2K system will be deployed in its Auckland facility to handle transfers and real-time 2K QA at up to 2GB/s speeds over dual 10GbE networks to multiple clients.
XDT’s unique Catapult® technology redefines media transfers over local and wide area networks for digital intermediate and post-production workflows. Catapult® delivers unprecedented performance for point-to-point media transfers and high-resolution uncompressed frame review over standard networking infrastructure.
"Our new Catapult has become the hub of our transition to an all file based workflow. All DPX dailies from digital cameras are loaded onto the Catapult with Slingshot and immediately reviewed and checked with Flipstream in real-time before being archived to LTO-5”, says Matt Cunningham, Technology Manager.
Erik Otto, CEO of XDT, states, “Digipost’s experience make it one of the world’s most respected companies in post production and visual effects today and we are very excited to be working with Matt and his team.”
Opening in 1990, Digipost was New Zealand’s first digital post production facility. In late 2007, it launched a state-of-the-art facility in Auckland. Its ongoing investment in leading-edge systems and equipment helps it unlock the best creative work alongside its clients.
