Going Wide
October 12 2022

Affinity has just completed a project to provide some very wide screen video demo content - 11,520 x 2160 pixels to be exact, designed to be spanned across three 3840 x 2160 UHD displays at 60fps. Both our Production Services and Post Production departments collaborated to rig three GoPro Hero 10 cameras on an ATV, shoot some lovely fall footage on a local trail, then stitch and edit the three camera streams together in post to create the finished four-minute sequence. A single frame of the final result can be seen here at 300 pixels wide, a mere 38.4 times smaller than the full-size version.

Chickens and Eggs
September 13 2022

Why did the chicken cross the road?  Because it was free-range.  Meet Thomas who came to Affinity when he was an intern from S.A.I.T. 8 years ago and hasn’t crossed back to Alberta since – which we are grateful for!  He is a multi-talented editor who has been our client’s go-to since 2015.  Doesn’t eat eggs and was once haunted by a ceramic chicken… He always makes the grade.

A massive upgrade for our entire facility and post production team is our new, third generation Facilis HUB24 shared storage system configured for both 10Gig E and Fibre Channel connectivity. Combined with a Facilis TX-16 expansion chassis, the system offers over 200 TB of ultra-fast, multi-stream storage to every one of our post production workstations.
