(Hollywood, California--July 25, 2012) Light Iron – a post production leader specializing in on-site dailies, digital intermediate, archival, and data services for projects originated on file-based motion cameras – announces on its third anniversary that it has acquired an additional facility in Hollywood to support its growing OUTPOSTmobile post production services. This facility is located on Cole Avenue, just a few blocks away from Light Iron’s headquarters on De Longpre Avenue.
“This expansion signifies our continued commitment to advancing on-set and near-set post production services,” says Light Iron CFO Peter Cioni. “We have been a market leader in mobile services since opening in 2009 and a second facility empowers us to further our global reach.”
Light Iron’s mobile systems include the flagship OUTPOST Cart, which supports a multitude of post production services for all major file-based cameras; the LILY PAD Cart, anon-set creative suite used to save and set color looks; and the new LILY PAD Case, a lightweight version ideal for remote locations or processing secondary cameras.
The company recently launched a unique distribution channel for these systems. Called OUTPOST Enterprise,this new program puts mobile systems in the hands of companies or individuals providing services to the production industry. Rental houses, stages, production companies, post facilities, and DITs can take possession of a mobile system for minimal upfront costs and only pay for the days they use it. Light Iron bills a predetermined rate to OUTPOST Enterprise members, who can set their own rates to clients in order to create and grow new revenue opportunities.
Light Iron will handle all of its OUTPOST activities at the Cole property, including R&D, fabrication, shipping, repairs, training, and support. In addition, the facility will enable Light Iron to expand its popular OUTPOST University program. “The building is meant to be a resource for industry professionals who want to adopt progressive post production techniques. We’re moving our classroom to Cole, and we’re increasing space for hands-on training,” adds Cioni.
Members of the post production community will recognize this building as the executive offices of the former Laser Pacific, which occupied the property from 2003 to 2011. Remodeling of the 6,000 sq. ft. facility began this week.
