ATLANTA — SIM Digital (www.simdigital.com), a supplier of digital production equipment and post production services, has expanded its presence in Atlanta, moving its operations to a new, nearly 7000-square-foot freestanding facility. The new SIM Digital Atlanta houses the company’s rental operations, which supplies cameras and related equipment to feature and television productions, as well as its Bling Digital unit, which provides post services.
SIM Digital Atlanta opened in 2008 and has seen steady growth driven by a rising tide of feature and television production in Georgia and throughout the Southeast. The company recently supplied camera systems to the television series The Vampire Diaries and season one of Revolution, as well as to the feature production The Good Lie. Bling Digital recently provided dailies processing services to the television series Rectify.
“Local tax incentives have helped to bring more production to Georgia,” notes SIM Digital Atlanta GM, Ann DeGuire (pictured). “The entire region is developing into a national production hub.” DeGuire adds that SIM Digital Atlanta’s growth has also led to a doubling of its staff since January.
SIM Digital Atlanta’s new facilities allow it to offer turnkey solutions extending from the set through final delivery. It now has on-site resources for screening, editorial, dailies processing, data archiving, final color correction and editorial finishing, all of which come with Bling’s support.
The company now offers Bling Digital’s Post On Demand (POD) systems, which are all-in-one solutions that enable productions to carry out a variety of post processes in their production offices or near-set environments. Its camera department has additional prep-floor space and now has the capacity to conduct side-by-side camera comparisons.
