West Coast headquarters for
SIM Digital, Bling Digital and Chainsaw offer complete solutions for production
and post at one location.

Los Angeles —Today marks the opening of Sim Group Hollywood’s showcase building
where Sim Digital, Bling and Chainsaw debut a unique “cameras through post”
offering that is the first available in the LA market.  With construction completed, the West Coast
headquarters, located on the historic Eastman Kodak campus in Hollywood, is
fully operational.

”We’ve got everything
a production needs under one roof,”
says SIM Group Chief Strategy Officer James Martin. “You can prep and test
cameras and lenses on the first floor, and the rest of the building can handle
every aspect of post from dailies and editorial offices all the way through
final color and deliverables. It’s an amazing complex.”
For Sim Digital, this new space represents a substantial
expansion of its camera rental business in Los Angeles. SIM Digital offers an
extensive inventory of digital camera systems and related gear, ample internal
space for camera testing and preparation, and multiple loading docks for
streamlined fulfillment.  All prep bays
have fiber connectivity to the 2nd and 3rd floor where workflow
specialist Bling Digital and post production services provider Chainsaw reside.
State-of-the-art resources include dailies processing, quality control,
editorial finishing, color grading, visual effects, sound mixing and
deliverables, as well as a pristine new theatre that includes a 4K Christie
projector. The first shows to prep in the new space include “American Horror
Story” and “Just Add Magic.”

The new complex has a robust networking and storage
infrastructure that includes nearly 1 million feet of fiber and copper cabling
and can accommodate productions of all sizes and scope including working in 4K,
HDR and beyond. “We’ve built an open pipe that can handle the challenges of
today and prepares us for the future. When new technology becomes available,
we’ll be able to plug it right in. As the industry moves beyond 4K, we’ll be
ready,” says SIM Group President of Post Production and Chainsaw Founder Bill
“The ability to connect a camera prep bay to a dailies
system and a final color bay is completely new, and we’re excited by the possibilities.
For the first time, a DP can manage the entire image chain on site,” says SIM
Group Chief Business Development Officer and Bling Digital Founder Chris Parker.
“And, by combining the amazing talent of our three companies, we can push the
limits of technology in cameras and post.”
