Mac Pro towers that have 12 cores, 32GBs of RAM and AJA Kona cards. The machines are loaded with Apple Final Cut 7 & 10, Avid Media Composer, and the full Adobe Cre- ative Suite 6. There are seats for Autodesk Maya, Maxon Cinema 4D, and Autodesk Smoke, along with an assortment of plug-ins. Some of the suites also have HP worksta- tions for cutting Red footage. The entire facility is tapeless. Every pro- duction records to a digital file that's sent to a large SAN. They use an Evertz EQX 576- by-576 3G SDI video router to send an uncompressed 3gig signal anywhere in the facility. Sellers says to "think of the facility as one big production environment" that you can combine elements to "build your show however you want to." Sellers says the studio also recently imple- mented a Sienna workflow (www.sienna-tv. com) and Quantum StorNext File System (SNFS). The Sienna production workflow allows them to capture content from any of the studios and bring the data back into the StorNext system. Files are available to the edit bays almost immediately. 4K Currently, the YouTube platform does sup- port 4K. "You can upload in 4K and lots of our creators are already doing that," relates Sellers. YouTube producers Joe Penna (aka MysteryGuitarMan), Devin "Super Tramp" Graham, and Kur t Hugo Schneider are among those already making 4K shows. Edit 3, 4, 5 and 6 are also going 4K, says Sellers enthusiastically, with the new Apple Mac Pro cylinders, AJA 3G (4K) Kona cards and Samsung 4K professional LCD displays.
