Brighton-based post and content services company Virtual Post has opened a new 3,650 sq ft facility in the city.
Four finishing and audio suites have been built with Dolby Atmos HE and HDR grading capabilities.
The new premises also includes 25 remote offline and four remote online finishing suites, while Virtual Post’s entire infrastructure has now been fully migrated to the cloud.
The company has also appointed David Swanson as head of post production following his arrival earlier in the summer from Radiant Post Production.
Earlier this year, Virtual Post and Ovation Data were awarded a collaborative research grant to fund Post Production Provided Anywhere (POPPA) a large-scale R&D project focused on creating a future-proof infrastructure and service-delivery system to help provide a more sustainable workflow for the longer term.
Jon Lee, CEO and founder of Virtual Post, said: “Our clients told us that a choice between remote and on-premise is where we need to be, so that’s exactly what we’ve built. Over time and through the POPPA project we have engaged in an exhaustive listening exercise, taking note of what everybody involved in post-production needs today and wants for tomorrow. It’s gratifying to see that the vision we pioneered when we founded Virtual Post — a vision that fused physical and remote working to create a more efficient, sustainable environment — is now pretty much reality.”
