ZigZag Post Employs SNS EVO Shared Storage Server for Production of BBC and Foxtel Coast Australia
Built for Editors, by Editors is the tagline in the edit suites at Sydney based boutique post-production studio ZigZag Post. Prioritizing their editors takes precedence and it’s reflected in the exceptional quality of work they produce.
With projects like the widely popular Coast Australia, a spin-off from the popular BBC series Coast, ZigZag Post is proof that regardless of company size or budget, great artistry will emerge.
Choosing the right solution to both enhance their Avid based workflow and fit their budget was a task not taken lightly by ZigZag Post. The decision paid off as SNS EVO expanded their production capabilities allowing editors to focus on their creativity.
“We desperately needed a good shared storage solution,” said Rob Sarroff, Director, ZigZag Post. The hybrid shared storage solution we were using allowed us to project share within the Avid workflow, but like other non-Avid storage solutions there were too many compromises — extra tech support and unhappy editors. With Avid’s storage being a big financial outlay, we discovered EVO and took a big chance bringing it on board. EVO worked perfectly right out of the box. I was surprised how well it integrated into our process, particularly with Avid Media Composer. If you didn’t know any better you would think you were working on Avid’s native storage.”
