Broadcast Television Series Post Production

The explosion of digital camera formats has given producers an unprecedented variety of choices for shooting scenes: Flip Phones, iPhones, Canon D5 and D7 cameras, Panasonic P2 and AVX-HD cameras, Arri Alexa, Sony F3 and numerous others, each with its own unique CODEC. Unfortunately, this variety can create a whole new range of headaches when its time to ingest the footage into non-linear editing systems. PPD has experience with all these formats and can work with clients to find solutions to their digital workflow challenges.

For example, the television documentary 'Hot Toxic Love' included footage from XDCAM-EX, Panasonic P2, Panasonic DVCPRO-HD, AVC50 and AVC100. Our Trusted Post Production Team found a workflow to ingest it all into our Avid Media Composer system. We provided the complete post production process including: offline editing, online conform, colour grading, closed captioning, descriptive video and final delivery on HDCAM and Digital Betacam. Our Avid Certified Service Representative (ACSR) and editor Erin Carroll oversaw the post production process, setting up the media management as well as setting the tone for the project. Michael Burshtyn completed the offline of nearly sixty hours of material, crafting it into the final 44 minute documentary which aired nationally on CityTV HD.

For the Broadcast TV market we have been providing offline and online editing services for many of Canada’s top production companies and broadcasters. If you’re a television producer, line producer or post production supervisor, our Broadcast Demo Reel shows examples of our Television Post Production for Reality TV Series, Poker Shows, Sports Programming, Music Specials and Documentaries. Documentary and Independent Film producers will also be interested in our Film and Documentary Reel.
