Avalon Studios Puts Xytech at Core of its Thriving Operations

Renowned New Zealand Film and Television Company Implements MediaPulse

(Mission Hills, CA/London, UK) Xytech, the global leader in facility management software for the broadcast and media services industries, announced that Avalon Studios has chosen the company’s Media Pulse Express solution to support its studio production operations. Located in Wellington, New Zealand, Avalon Studios is an independently owned and operated studio complex. MediaPulse Express helps the busy studio manage its varied facilities, as well as staff, resources, and back office operations.

The Wellington studio facility was originally launched in 1975 to support TVNZ’s production operations supporting an impressive list of television shows, feature films, commercials and media events. It provided an extensive infrastructure with sets and stages, back lots, control rooms, post production environments, camera and lighting hire, staff and crew support, and even a helipad. With the implementation of MediaPulse, Xytech’s resource, work order and asset management platform featuring a full suite of scheduling, operational, and financial management tools, Avalon Studios has the software solution it needs to keep all of the various and demanding aspects of the studio running seamlessly.

Paul Mainwaring CEO of Avalon, said, “As a studio complex that stretches over 2.45 hectares and offers the entire production and post production service spectrum, we required the most efficient, effective, and powerful solution available. We evaluated MediaPulse and found it to be the perfect fit for us. From scheduling stages and crew, to the hire of equipment, to final invoicing, it makes our job easier. We’re very pleased with our decision.”

Greg Dolan, COO of Xytech, said, “New Zealand has become one of the most appealing location centers in the world, and Avalon is a bustling production center right in the heart of things. The variety of their needs and the demands of their busy production center put MediaPulse Express in the spotlight, and I’m happy to say it delivered. We are looking forward to continuing our outstanding relationship with this stellar company.”
