Stand-alone services which do not necessarily involve buying, installing, or configuring hardware or software.
Post Production Technology Appraisal and Strategy
Technology changes at a rapid pace, and whether your company uses products from Apple, Adobe, Avid, Autodesk, or any combination, there are numerous details which affect how they interact (or not). Mac OS X Lion or Mountain Lion? Adobe Cloud? iMac, Mac Pro or the promised 2013 Professional Mac? Cameras, codecs, compression and deliverables? It’s enough to make your head spin! ka-POW-er! is here to help you make sense of it all.
Archive and Backup (& Data Recovery) Strategy
The most important way to protect company data, your business’ second most important resource (after talent), is to have an automated system that runs without depending upon humans. Face it, remembering to backup is probably the last thing on your mind.
Tapeless Video Archive and Backup Strategy
If you go anywhere near HD production or post these days, you are likely struggling to buy storage fast enough, never mind having multiple copies in multiple locations! We don’t ever want to be the ones saying “we warned you” and we certainly don’t want you to have to pay high fees for data recovery or sustain catastrophic data loss of your once-in-a-lifetime footage. Please take backup seriously! We will help you protect your footage and metadata in ways that ensure you can retrieve it for the inevitable revisions for the next 2-3 decades.
Are you thinking about relocating? Expanding? About to sign a lease? ka-POW-er! will survey the new location and/or meet with architects and cabling contractors to ensure that the infrastructure (power, cooling), construction plans, and data cabling adequately meet your needs. We’ll even supervise and follow up where necessary to ensure that things are going as planned.
Office Relocation Services
Moving into a new space is exciting and nerve-racking all at once. With so many plans and literally hundreds of details, all of which need attention while you keep the business running, it makes perfect sense to have ka-POW-er! ensure the technology infrastructure needs are met before, during, and after the big move.
If management wants to know if bringing post-production in-house will save the company money and you need to provide due diligence without upsetting your existing vendor relationships, ka-POW-er! can advise you on every aspect. Construction, power, cooling, audio & video equipment, maintenance, storage, signal routing, salary, training and personnel requirements. Don’t bother asking for references for this service. Our lips are still sealed.
