Why Lost Made the Move to HD Editorial
The editorial team on ABC’s Lost made a big move this year, bumping up the quality in the Avid suite from SD to HD. The show is currently editing for the first time using Avid’s DNxHD 36 codec for the season that premieres in January 2009. The technology is provided by Santa Monica’s Digital Vortechs, which outfits TV, feature film, and commercial shoots with editorial pipelines. HD Studio got CEO Jim Longeretta on the phone to find out how fast the industry is switching over to high-res editorial.
