The move marks the facility's expansion plans, which include doubling the management team by appointing two more directors, Andy Nicholson and Mark Manning from Crow TV.
The new kit list features an Edifis Finaliser for grading work, six HD Adrenalines and an Avid Unity LANShare LP storage system. It will replace all of Directors Cut's existing editing equipment which includes Symphony and Media Composer suites.
The facility, founded seven years ago and specialising in documentary editing for clients such as BBC music and entertainment and Shine, made the investment in a bid to expand its remit to cover feature film, drama documentary and commercials clients.
'We knew Directors Cut had a lot of potential but it was not realised,' said facilities manager Indi Gavin. 'It needed a bit of a boost. We want a reputation as a high-end boutique facility.'
The new HD capability is expected to be fully operational by next month.
