DR GROUP COMPLETES MULTI-ROOM FCP INSTALL AT MAKINE STUDIOS
|DR Consulting designed all elements of the installation, including selecting the optimum mix of equipment and software, developing the electrical strategies and connecting the rooms to allow for seamless collaboration between suites.
"These new, interconnected rooms give us a level of flexibility that has greatly enhanced our workflow and our ability to service clients in the fastest and most efficient manner possible," says Eduardo Garcia, creative director at MAkinE Studios.
Led by company founder Lowell Kay, DR Consulting represents the company's formalization of its years of experience assisting companies in the design and construction of their post facilities.
"Post houses are increasingly choosing Final Cut Pro as their preferred editing platform and we are pleased to have had the opportunity to develop a custom solution for MAkinE Studios," says Kay. "Our goal with DR Consulting is to make it as simple and cost effective as possible for post facilities to create networked, multi-room facilities that allow them to operate at maximum efficiency."
In addition to The DR Group's rental, support, consulting and training services, the company also manufactures the DRaid storage drive, a fast, low-cost alternative to the Xserve RAID.
