imgBurlington, MA (February 25, 2014)—Post production facility Films at 59, located in Bristol, England, has become the first customer in the U.K. to adopt the Avid S6 control surface.

Films at 59 provides location equipment rental, workflow support and post for a variety of independent producers and broadcasters. Its move to Avid S6 will see the company switch to a fully integrated Avid content creation infrastructure.

Gina Fucci, managing director of Films at 59, said, “With ever-decreasing budgets, faster turnaround times, and the need for producers to find money across territories to fund a project, we needed an agile workflow based on open and tightly integrated solutions. With the innovative and intuitive Avid S6 at the heart of our workflow, we can be more creative, yet less labor intensive, enabling us to grow our business.”

Films at 59’s new audio production infrastructure, which combines Avid Pro Tools and the S6 console, has been integrated into its existing s6 jpgMedia Composer and ISIS shared storage video content creation workflow.

“Through extensive testing, we’ve found Avid solutions to be the most reliable, while their compatibility with third-party applications and robust, high-speed central media storage deliver significant time and cost savings,” added Fucci. “With shared storage, the ability for productions to share audio and vision, and the flexibility to pick up a mix in any room to accommodate schedule changes are tremendous benefits.”
