MONTREAL, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Discreet, a division of
Autodesk, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSK) today announced that post-production facility
Shooters Post & Transfer has purchased a number of additional Discreet
systems, to be used on its growing portfolio of commercial spots and high-
definition (HD) television programming work. The Philadelphia-based company
has added two of Discreet's fire(R) 6 non-linear editing and finishing systems
on SGI(R) Onyx(R) 350 to its three existing fire systems. They also chose
Discreet's backdraft(TM) background media management software, and obtained an
upgrade to Discreet's flame(R) 8 visual effects and compositing system.

"The demand for HD and high-end post-production work is flourishing, but
it can put a heavy strain on production in terms of quality and performance,"
said Ray Carballada, Chief Operating Officer at Shooters Post & Transfer. "We
needed more of the best systems, so we chose fire because it remains the
fastest and best editing suite available for HD and standard-definition post
work. We purchased our first Discreet fire system in 1997, and today own
five."
Shooters Post & Transfer works on numerous HD projects using Discreet's
fire and flame systems, including: Comcast SportsNet's graphics package for
the Philadelphia and Chicago markets; editing of TLC's Trading Spaces; Banyan
Productions' HD conforms; the main titles for CBS drama Hack; HD conforms of
commercial spots and promos airing on Voom, a new HD satellite channel from
Cablevision; and the editing of several independent feature films.
Carballada added, "Our clients want to be in a fire suite for high-end
post projects. They demand that we use fire because it doesn't limit them.
Clients feel comfortable with fire's user-friendly interface that lets you
visualize changes, and its capabilities inspire their creativity. There is no
doubt that fire significantly boosts the level of collaboration we can have
with clients."
