EVO is the choice of industry experts and top professionals

Leftfield Pictures, a leading producer of reality TV shows including Pawn Stars and American Restoration uses SNS EVO as the foundation of their file-based workflow. With over 14 shows in production, their busy shooting schedule requires running multiple production shifts resulting in approximately 10-15 P2 and SxS cards coming into the studio at all hours to be ingested. The post facility houses 120 Mac Pro and iMAC workstations running Final Cut Pro. All of the media is ingested and edited on a 550TB EVO system — using any, and sometimes all of the MAC workstations.

“We have more than 14 reality shows in production or airing. We’ve created content for over 400 episodes of reality TV, and we’re handling this high output all with EVO. There’s no better solution to handle our needs.”
– Brent Montgomery, Owner and Executive Producer, Leftfield Pictures, NY
