Jigsaw24 were asked by London post production facility Splice to supply and install a new cutting edge suit for their offline and audio requirements. These include projects for the BBC, ITV, Shine TV and Rise Films.
The brief from Splice director Damian Dolniak was a simple one, design a system that fits their needs, that can be hooked into their existing Avid backend systems for the right price. Damian told us...
The main challenges we’re facing are price, price and price,” explained Damian. “Everyone’s budgets are being cut, so when it comes to technology we need to find smarter, more efficient ways of doing the things we were doing two years ago, and continue to find ways to differentiate ourselves from other people doing what we do.
Jigsaw24 has been a partner with Splice for many years, allowing them to test various bits of recordings gear and see what finds the best fit for them.
The final audio solution was installed and put through its paces when Splice were asked to carry out audio work on the latest series of BBC's MasterChef. Once it was all in Damian told us...
It [The room} definitely helped keep the project running smoothly. As the series progresses, deadlines get tighter and tighter, and the Avid S6 has definitely allowed us to be more nimble in terms of how we deal with that. It’s meant we can work more efficiently, get through things quicker and automate the process so we know we can turn around a mix in a day.
