Boutique Post Facility Improves Bottom Line with Cinedeck
Since opening its doors in 2013, boutique post-production house Geiger Post has quickly become a premier provider of post services to some of the Industry’s largest networks and studios. To streamline their deliverables workflow and improve their bottom-line, Geiger Post turned to Cinedeck to help them better handle their ever-growing workload and tight deadlines.
Owner, Hans Geiger comments, “We were first attracted by the Insert Edit feature. Allowing you to ‘punch-in’ fixes to QuickTime files and eliminating the need to do a full re-export and re-QC was a very enticing proposition. We create master files for delivery to networks by outputting straight from Avid. For a growing boutique post shop like ours, being able to quickly punch-in fixes to files has been a godsend.”
When asked about ease of integration within their existing machine room environment, Geiger notes, “Cinedeck works just like a tapedeck, giving us the ability to run a signal through a hardware limiter or frame converter and to ‘punch-in’ video and audio fixes. My guys have commented that Cinedeck has been easy to operate and they’ve really enjoyed working with Cinedeck’s support team because they have always been very responsive.”
“A lot of our file deliverables are 90-minute and 2-hour award shows, so you can imagine not having to re-output and re-QC saves us a lot of time and aggravation,” Geiger concludes.
Geiger Post has used Cinedeck and cineXinsert software to deliver shows such as “Fameless” TruTv, “Dinner at Tiffani’s” Cooking Channel, “Flea Market Flip” HGTV, “Detroiters” Comedy Central, “Kennedy Center Awards” CBS, “Hip Hop Hollywood Squares” VH-1, “Lyania Fix My Life” OWN and “Growing Up Hip Hop” for WEtv.
