Mac-based system
provides an integrated solution for dailies processing, editorial and more in a
mobile package. See it at axle Video, Booth 409.

BURBANK—Advantage Video Systems will
showcase 4Kase, its
new mobile, post-production and editing system for use on-set at the SMPTE 2014
Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, October 20-23, in Hollywood. The
lightest, most compact and most comprehensive on-set production solution on the
market, 4Kase drew rave reviews from production professionals of all types when
it was introduced at NAB in April.

At SMPTE, AVS will be demonstrating 4Kase at the axle Video
booth (booth 409). axle Video’s industry-leading media management software is a
standard feature of the system.  Sam
Bogoch, axle’s CEO, said “we are delighted to have our software included in
this leading-edge solution by AVS. 
On-location tools are expanding from simple DIT style file transfers to
much more powerful workflows, and axle’s search, mobile review/approval and
collaboration capabilities help make this wider role a reality.”
Based on a high-performance Mac Pro workstation, 4Kase
offers the ability to input and output 4K data from most popular digital cinema
cameras and perform such tasks as dailies processing, media back-up, color
management, media management and editing—all from a fully integrated system
small enough to fit in the trunk of a car.
4Kase is unlike any on-set dailies system currently on the
market. “We’ve built a better mousetrap,” says Advantage Video Systems
principal Jeffrey Stansfield. “4Kase replaces rack-mount DIT carts that are
bulky, costly to ship and difficult to operate. It is smaller, faster and
lighter, and can be configured to meet the needs of individual production
workflows. 4Kase provides a streamlined workflow that carries the creative
intent of directors and DPs from the set through final post.”
4Kase includes a 2014 Apple Mac Pro workstation capable of
running most current software for dailies processing, color management, media
back-up and editorial. It supports the latest cameras made by Sony, Arri, RED,
Canon and Blackmagic Design. Key features include a built-in high resolution
monitor, up to 16 TB of onboard storage, two LTO-6 drives, SAS RAID-5, a
multi-cam reader, Thunderbolt expansion slots, and cooling and power management
tools. All of that is custom fitted into a rugged transport case designed to
stand up to the rigors of location production, yet small and light enough to be
checked as airline luggage.
Production teams using the 4Kase system gain immediate
access to dailies on laptops, iPads, and smartphones with the integrated axle
Video media management software. Whereas MAM systems are typically complex,
expensive, and difficult to install, axle’s “radically simple” media management
software saves time and cost with its easy set-up and simple, browser-based user
Advantage Video Systems’ development partners include Apple,
axle Video, HP, Magma, RED, Tolis Group, SKB Corporation and Blackmagic Design.
The system has undergone extensive beta-testing with a variety of camera
systems and under a range of operating conditions.
