LUSSIER creates and produces programming recaps and trailers for ABC, Disney, FOX, Lifetime and other networks. The system’s cross-platform project data sharing and HD file sharing capabilities, gigabit connectivity and long-term scalability matched their requirements.
LUSSIER's editing facilities are used for promotional pieces for prime-time shows like ‘Desperate Housewives’, ‘LOST’ and ‘Project Runway’, but their services include off-line and on-line editing, motion graphics and sound mixing of long-form specials and theatrical trailers. Fifteen Avid and Final Cut Pro units and one PC-based Symphony are connected to the XStream via Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet with two expansion chassis. EditShare solutions support both 10 Gigabit and Gigabit Ethernet, to accommodate editing standard SD to uncompressed HD and Digital Intermediate. EditShare shared storage solutions use RAID-5 configurations, providing maximum protection for media. www.lussier.tv www.editshare.com www.digistor.com.au
