LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Neotrope News Network/ — One year after unveiling its new dax|D3 digital production workflow system, Sample Digital announces full adoption by its production clients, including the industry’s major film studios, broadcast networks and production companies. The platform now supports a community of more than 7,500 individual users, and more than 50 companies, making Sample Digital the leader in its field and dax|D3 the most widely used digital production workflow system.
The new dax|D3 platform incorporates workflow acceleration tools, including secure Digital Dailies — time-tested technologies that are the industry standard at major motion picture studios, television networks, and independent production companies.
“We’re absolutely stoked with the product acceptance and positive feedback we have received from our existing and new clients,” said Sample Digital CEO Patrick Macdonald-King, “Not only have we expanded the use of our applications across a wider customer base in production, we have also moved further upstream into studios and television networks and have a strong presence in marketing, publicity and home video – areas that have embraced our technologies.”
In a recent survey performed by Sample Digital with its core customer base, 90 percent of respondents said they were either “Very satisfied,” or “Satisfied” with the system. More than 85 percent declared they were saving time using the application and that it was easy to use (over 150 responses).
Companies that have deployed dax|D3 include 20th Century Fox Films and Television, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, CBS, ABC Studios, Disney Channel, Summit, Lifetime, Showtime, CBC Television, CTV, Film Roman, Marvel, Fox TV Studios, USA Networks, Sony Pictures Television, CBS Films, Miramax, Relativity Media, Alcon, Scott Free, and many independents.
“The new dax|D3 has really taken Digital Dailies(tm) and production workflow to a new level,” said Bobby Williams, VP of Postproduction at Lionsgate Television, “A lot of hassles I had previously are now taken care of. And it’s greener too. When you’ve got five shows going and a reel or two of dailies coming for each show for each executive, that’s a lot of waste that we don’t see anymore.”
