The new division will offer digital dailies and a range of services to support remote working
Molinare has launched a new division called Molinare Production Services, which includes a new digital dailies offering (Moli Dailies) as part of a suite of services for remote working, media streaming and media storage.
Molinare Production Services will be led by Darren Rae, who recently joined the company and previously worked with Molinare CEO Nigel Bennett at Pinewood Digital. The division will be supported by operations manager of production services, Patrick Barry, and will be based at Molinare’s Soho HQ.
Moli Dailies will provide dailies grading; 4K screening services; transcoding for editorial; dailies review and VFX pull; and automated services with SAN and LTO archiving. It has been created to offer in-house, near set and on-location dailies for UK and international productions.
Molinare Production Services also offers ‘tailor made’ remote working options for those choosing to work in this way, both now and in the future. The tools are designed to provide ease of access to key creative and technical in-house resources. They are as follows:
MoliStream – This supports the streaming of media to remote locations. It is split into two services – MoliStream-Offline and MoliStream- HQ, which both enable video and audio from within Molinare’s facilities to be securely viewed remotely on computers and mobile devices.
MoliRemote – This enables a remote user to securely take control of equipment physically located inside Molinare’s facilities from home or another remote location.
MoliSync – This is designed for when bandwidth restrictions exist or where creatives want to use their own equipment and MoliRemote or MoliStream aren’t suitable.
MoliVault – This is for clients wanting to store large amounts of media/data for extended periods without wanting the cost of occupying high speed disk. All media remains stored in Molinare’s facility and not in the cloud.
Rae says: “I’m extremely pleased to arrive at Molinare and launch our new Production Services department. I’m bringing my years of experience in the industry to develop and drive Molinare Production Services into new creative and technical territories. I will be introducing new and current clients to all the tools and technologies that the new Production Service department can offer their production. Molinare can now manage your entire post-production needs from the first test shots to your final deliverables.”
Barry adds: ‘‘Creating the Production Services division means we can cultivate a robust and forward-looking team that can integrate with Molinare’s established post-production expertise and provide creative and technical continuity for our returning, and future, clients.”
Darren Woolfson, director of technology and visual services, said: “I’m so excited to be working with Darren Rae and Patrick Barry again. We have the opportunity to develop Molinare’s Production Services division with a strong focus on innovation. I believe we will be able to offer a unique service delivering to our client’s current and future needs.”
