Hollywood’s SSI Advanced Post Services Installs Teranex VC100 Video Processors

Blackmagic Design today announced that SSI Advanced Post Services, one of Hollywood’s premiere post production facilities, has installed Teranex VC100 video processors as part of a massive project converting various classic television shows, such as “I Love Lucy” and “Gilligan’s Island,” to file based formats for inflight airline entertainment systems.

Installed at their Sunset Boulevard facility, SSI will use the Teranex VC100 to complete an extensive set of format and frame rate conversions on a number of television shows, transforming media of various ages and quality into the uniform format and resolutions needed for inflight television. Beyond this project, the Teranex VC100 will also be used to handle SSI’s ongoing theatrical and television trailer work, preparing trailers for use across the globe.

“Some of our biggest customers ask for Teranex by name because it ensures high quality, and we have been Teranex customers for a number of years. So it was an obvious choice to upgrade to the complete VC100 when it became available,” said SSI’s head of engineering, Gary Fradken. “With our clients, it is either high quality or it is unacceptable. Teranex not only gives that level of quality, but it is also reliable and easy to use. It just makes great pictures.”

“With the airline project, on some days we received boxes full of tapes from the 1960s, while on other days we got media with whole seasons of a show shot 30 years ago in England in PAL. Every single piece of content needs to be turned into uniform high quality file based media with the same aspect ratio and format,” continued Fradken. “The VC100 has been invaluable and handles any format thrown at it. It has particularly shined when working with media including interlaced content, which no other video processor can handle like the VC100.”

SSI upgraded to the Teranex VC100 from their existing Teranex VC300. The system joins SSI’s existing network of Blackmagic Design products, including three DaVinci Resolve color correction systems, including Resolve Control Surfaces, and 18 Blackmagic Design DeckLink HD Extreme 3D capture and playback cards. These products are used to complete color correction and post production for SSI’s work on theatrical trailers, such as the trailers for the new films “Journey 2” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
