SIM Digital/Bling Digital has pioneered the use of portable
technology to perform such tasks as dailies processing, editing and color

house to be performed on the set, on location or in a production office, resulting
in significant time and cost savings. SIM/Bling’s P.O.D. solutions have been
employed by many film and television productions, including Psych, Pacific Rim, Suits, Psych, Hell on Wheels and Covert

entirely new approach to post,” Jacobson adds. “It’s all about ramping up
