Post-production firm Envy has invested more than £200,000 in broadcasting equipment for its new advertising arm.


The new kit includes five Flame Premium 2016 upgrades with new workstations, render capability, storage and networking.

The HP Z840 workstations will be equipped with 128GB RAM, two Quadro K6000 GPU cards for on-board background rendering and 40Gb/s InfiniBand networking.

A Flare assist workstation will be fitted in each suite and a Flame Assist workstation installed in the MCR Support area to help with particularly demanding projects.

Head of technical operations Daniel Sassen said: “We worked closely with the team at XTFX who partnered with Envy’s engineers and were instrumental in producing a smooth transition with a testing, installation and training plan.”
