Technology Innovators Respond to Global Production Boom


Local Technology Innovators Respond to Global Production Boom

Local media software companies Kiwa Digital and The Cargo Cult are moving quickly to take advantage of the global production boom created by tech giants such as Netflix and Amazon.

Responding to forecasts of explosive demand for localised media content, Auckland based Kiwa Digital, developers of VoiceQ post production software, announced today a collaboration with Wellington based The Cargo Cult, developer of the audio post production tool Conformalizer.

VoiceQ is a systemized software solution that automates dialogue replacement in the post-production stage of film and television production. It has a global reputation for the precision of its synching process and the quality performance achieved.

Conformalizer is an audio post production tool that allows sound editors to automatically conform and rebalance audio data to match a changed picture cut. It works by comparing picture EDLs, XML, cutlists or change notes and creating a new ‘change EDL’ which reflects the difference between two versions of the picture. Conformalizer can then automatically conform Pro Tools sessions, databases and mix automation to match the new version of the cut.

The new VoiceQ release out today integrates Conformalizer into the VoiceQ workflow, allowing studio engineers to quickly make large script and media changes, a common requirement in post.

“The industry is calling for global collaboration and efficiencies and for us this can only be achieved by integrating ‘best in breed’ studio and cloud tools,” says Steven Renata CEO of VoiceQ.

“Our focus with this latest development has been on taking the best technology available. We reached out to the industry for recommendations on the tools they use and were thrilled to find the best of the best was created by a local company.” says Renata.
“Nau Mai ki te Ao Matahiko | Welcome to the Digital Arena.”
The new VoiceQ release was launched to global post-production and media companies today and is available through www.voiceq.com
