StormHD has invested in a new Avid Unity Media Network in order to provide shared storage capabilities at its Covent Garden post-production facility.


The Unity will allow for collaborative working across all of its suites - including two Final Cut Pro rooms - and improve the company’s ability to deal with logistically complex projects.

The investment also includes upgrading six Avid offline suites to Media Composer version 3.5.

The company said the move was driven by an “increased interest in tapeless formats such as XDCam, P2 and Red.”

Meanwhile, StormHD has completed full post on Echo and the Elephants of Amboseli (pictured), a 13 x 30-min series for Mike Birkhead Associates. The show will air on Animal Planet from 19 October.

StormHD is twinned with duplication, encoding and subtitling company IBF (International Broadcast Facilities).
