post house St Anne's has purchased the UK's first HD disk recorder as part of its ongoing investment in HD and telecine technology.
The HD Station Plus from DVS is designed for use in high-end post-production and will be used to capture uncompressed HD data or film data in full 2K resolution, and then process, grade and output to film.
Head colourist Vince Narduzzo described the recorder as a "powerful digital workhorse that will speed up the grading for HD and SD projects and has proved reliable and transparent". The£42,000 recorder was supplied by Root 6.
Meanwhile, St Anne's has hired M2's Keith Williams as its general manager.
