DIT

06 Sep 2013

Niche Cameras has partnered with two specialist DIT companies that offer location DIT services, complete with the latest DIT gear and the best (informed and focused) DIT crew. We can handle any raw or compressed format, project size, and shooting genre, from feature film projects to commercials – in addition, we travel to anywhere at anytime.

DIT: (DIGITAL IMAGING TECHNICIAN)
The on-set DIT is responsible for the media management from (start to finish), of the precious captured video files, giving the production/producer peace of mind that once the image is ‘recorded’ the DIT will copy in triplicate, visually check for errors and then transcode the video files to any format that the post-production department has requested. Our DIT personal will supervise both the integrity and the quality of the video files being captured, whilst clearly communicating and liaising with the DOP and AC’s within the camera dept.
The DIT can also liaise with the ‘post house’ as to format, workflow and LUT requirements that are to be delivered.

SERVICES:
Consultation and Workflow planning
Data management (ARRI Log-C, RED R3D, P2, SONY S-Log)

Our custom-built ‘Kestrel’ stations house a 17” MacBook Pro and a variety of fast card readers for the most commonly used RAW formats, 3TB of shock-mounted RAID 1 protected storage and 4 hard drive bays for further backup.

These systems are loaded with a range of data management software for off-loading and check-summing your data to ensure corrupt-free, bit-perfect copies, as well as playback and grading software for reviewing material from previous days and generating rushes.
