NORTH HOLLYWOOD – Pacific Post (www.pacpost.com), a Hollywood-based provider of Avid rental equipment and editorial space for both the film and television industry, opens the doors to its new North Hollywood facility this week. Pacific Post Lankershim is located at 4142 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood. The space has undergone a top-to-bottom renovation and upgrade, transforming it into editorial space.
“This new space is a culmination of input from our clients, our experience, and our desire to build a very specific kind of environment: highly technical, comfortable, secure and creative,” explains Pacific Post’ founder/owner Lorenzo Sgroi. “We will continue to offer the most responsive rental and editorial system support, as well as foster a place where editors want to spend their time, work closely with their colleagues, and share conversation in common areas with peers at work on different projects.”
Pacific Post Lankershim offers 40 edit rooms in over 21,000 square feet of space — all connected internally and externally via fiber. The rooms come with all new cabling, and are completely configurable to accommodate the needs of a variety of productions. Space is available for editors, post staff and/or production teams.
“Secure and rapid data transfer is crucial, and that was one of our paramount concerns for this new space,” says Sgroi. “Storage and access to material is extremely important to our customers. This facility features multiple 10-GigE ISIS 5000 systems in its in-house network and dedicated Internet fiber with busting capabilities over 150Mb bi-directional at any given time.”
The site has 24-hour, IP cameras, seven-days-a-week access and climate-controlled rooms. In addition, technical support staff and client services staff will be onsite. The Lankershim facility also has amenities such as a new kitchen, comfortable communal areas, VOIP phone systems, valet parking, and daily janitorial services.
Kristin Kumamoto joins the company as vice president. Kumamoto brings a wealth of post management experience, with previous executive roles at Hula Post and Orbit Digital. At Pacific Post, she will continue to foster the company’s relationships with the post community and build upon future opportunities.
