Pixcom Centralizes Video Editing Workstations with Matrox Avio KVM Extenders


High-quality extension helps production company maximize productivity, removing system noise and heat from editing
Pixcom Centralizes Video Editing Workstations with Matrox Avio KVM Extenders
One of Canada's largest independent production houses, Groupe Pixcom Inc.'s domestic programming has far-reaching appeal, with award-winning television credits across all genres and an international catalog distributed to over 150 countries. With a move to a larger location on the horizon and the desire to continue centralizing workstations and other equipment outside of its video editing studios, Pixcom vetted different KVM extenders and chose the far-reaching, fiber-optic Matrox Avio F120, which enables real-time control up to 10 km (6.2 miles) away from the system.

Los Angeles Movie Awards Best Narrative Short Film Stays 'Committed'
Los Angeles Movie Awards Best Narrative Short Film Stays 'Committed'
It's no secret that Hollywood is a tough nut to crack, and every aspiring actress dreams of her big break. But what many don't realize is that there is a rather straightforward way to ensure you land the role you want. One night over dinner Mehran Torgoley and Llana Barron realized that the best way to land a role is to write it yourself, and a few drinks later, the kernel of the idea for "Committed" was born. In the short film, a compassionate nurse in an overcrowded mental hospital in the early 1950s struggles to prove the sanity of a young paraplegic patient. "We decided to shoot with the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K because of its image quality. It's amazing that we were able to get such an incredibly detailed image for such an affordable price."

 HTC Re Camera is Bold, but Forgets That Image is Everything
The $199 HTC Re is supposed to let users get back in the moment when taking pictures by eliminating the distracting viewscreen. However, it's not as good as some high-end smartphone cameras, and dedicated cameras have many more features. The HTC Re app is available on iOS and Android, and can act as a live viewfinder as well as an easy way to offload pics from the Re. It's hard to miss how you capture pics — the silver button is big and prominent.

Protecting Content
Protecting Content
Let's face it people are uncomfortable with change even though it seems we have to make changes every day. It's even worse when you've got some of the greatest content you ever shot/created stored on devices spread around the office. So what do you do to ensure it's protected, available, safe from prying eyes? You decide to move to 20, 36, more TB of RAID (random array of independent drives) storage. First choice is hardware RAID because it's been around for a long time but now there's a strong option - software RAID - and it's time to understand the pros/cons of each. Read More

Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
"Filmage: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL" began as a passion project for a group of creatives working at Dallas-based post house CharlieUniformTango (CUT), and quickly evolved into a full-fledged documentary production. Within four years, the film's directors Deedle LaCour and Matt Riggle, along with editors Justin Wilson and James Rayburn, had traveled the world, combining a love for old-school punk music with filmmaking chops to deliver an indie flick that recounts the history and influence of punk rock legends the Descendents. The film features a compilation of present-day interviews with band members and industry influencers, fan video submissions and archived tour media. Editorial for the film required a portable and flexible workflow, for which Rayburn turned to AJA's Io XT Thunderbolt-enabled professional video device for on-the-go I/O. Read More

Blackmagic Cinema Camera and 686 Technical Apparel
686 Technical Apparel has always been about providing innovative, fashionable outerwear and technical apparel inspired from the same Los Angeles street culture and mountain lifestyle that it was founded on. When cinematographer Ian Post was hired to shoot cinematography for the brand, he knew his gear needed to be as reliable, durable and resilient, as well as able to withstand the elements, as the outerwear he was shooting. Not only does Ian's camera have to work in such harsh conditions, but it also has to deliver stunning footage that captures the snowy landscape as well as highlights the star of the shoots, 686 outerwear.
