Weiterstadt, Germany – DFT Digital Film Technology, a provider of high-end fi lm and digital post production, announced that Bangkok-based Spice Shop is the fi rst commercial post facility in Southeast Asia to install the SCANITY fi lm scanner. Spice Shop recently unveiled its newly renovated facility, which enhances its service offerings to support feature fi lm post production including on-set and post grading, 3D DCI mastering, as well as archive and restoration work. The SCANITY high-speed 4K/2K fi lm scanner complements Spice Shop’s existing and upgraded data infrastructure and supports the overall non-linear system of solutions that allows the Thailand facility to have a smooth and effi cient online and offl ine workfl ow. The post house also chose DVS technology when building its IT infrastructure. The DVS systems with their open interfaces are meeting all the studio’s requirements: two SpycerBox Flex and one SpycerBox Ultra are playing a key role in delivering high performance and fl exibility in the post production network, with the CLIPSTER DI workstation functioning as the centerpiece within the workfl ow. With SpycerBox from DVS, Spice Shop has opted for storage solutions that offer reliable realtime processing of uncompressed projects in parallel, resulting in time savings for editors and colourists. Integrating multiple SpycerBoxes instead of a monolithic storage system allows for redundancy and modularity in the network.
