Light Iron - a post production leader specializing in on-site dailies, digital intermediate, archival, and data services for projects originated on file-based motion cameras - announced today that its mobile post production systems will now be available through a unique distribution channel called OUTPOST Enterprise. OUTPOST Enterprise is a membership program whereby companies or individuals providing services to the production industry are equipped to offer Light Iron's OUTPOST, LILY PAD, or LILY PAD CASE.
Upon joining OUTPOST Enterprise, members take possession of a mobile system for minimal upfront costs. Afterward, they only pay for the days a system is used. Light Iron bills a predetermined rate to members, who can set their own rates to clients in order to create and grow new revenue opportunities.

"OUTPOST Enterprise empowers members such as rental houses, stages, production companies, post facilities, and DITs to offer state-of-the art post production services, totally on their own."
Whether members choose the lightweight LILY PAD CASE, the LILY PAD cart, or the powerful OUTPOST cart,they will be able to support a multitude of post production services for nearly every file-based camera. The base systems support all HD motion picture cameras, and specific processing packages are customized for cameras with 2K resolution and higher such as the Arri Alexa, Sony's F65, or the RED Epic.
Key services that the OUTPOST Enterprise mobile systems provide include: checksums of all data transfers; downloads over eSata or SAS; high-speed raided storage; CDLcolor correction; tactile surface integration; SDI video monitoring; ACES color space monitoring & management; automated & manual audio syncing; geometry, scaling, de-squeezing, and aspect ratio adjustments; customizablewindow burn configurations; customizable watermarking; rendering of DNxHD, ProRes, H.264, DPX, EXR, & TIFF; wireless iPad dailies syncing; scene and take metadata entry; ALE editing; data reporting; and disk cataloging.
