Hollywood, CA -- Pacific Post will integrate FotoKem’s award-winning nextLAB software into their editorial offerings. The agreement allows Pacific Post to offer FotoKem’s nextLAB dailies and data management software solution with Avid editorial systems.
“The ability to bundle nextLAB-enabled systems with our existing inventory of Avid rental solutions and edit bays gives our clients an unprecedented level of efficiency,” says Pacific Post’s Founder and Owner Lorenzo Sgroi. “We have witnessed the development of nextLAB from the ground up, and know it to be an incredibly powerful, scalable and innovative dailies solution. When we looked at other systems, only FotoKem’s nextLAB is backed by a renowned company with decades-long lab experience and an in-house software team, making it our first choice.”
FotoKem’s nextLAB software securely stores media, archives to LTO, provides quality control tools, audio syncing, color management, and transcoding. It manages the full range of digital camera files and metadata available in the marketplace, and incorporates the Academy Color Encoding Specifications (ACES) architecture, an increasingly important capability for filmmakers.
Getting media from one place to another efficiently is Sgroi’s goal for Pacific Post’s turnkey solutions. “Dailies, editing and data management now go hand-in-hand intoday’s technologically-enhanced workflows. We are thrilled to deepen our relationship with FotoKem and pleased to have the power of the nextLAB brand in our offerings.”
Sgroi spent three years as a lead Avid Certified Support Representative (ASCR) technician at FotoKem where he installed, tested, and supported Avid systems for productions in multiple locations. He has sustained a prosperous relationship with FotoKem since founding Pacific Post in 2004, collaborating on a number of projects over the years.
“This partnership expands our reach within the filmmaking community and brings creative flexibility to filmmakers in new ways, supporting our ongoing efforts to be a global solutions-oriented resource in the industry,” says FotoKem Vice President Mike Brodersen.
