I'd like to invite everyone here to check out Southeastern Studios in the beautiful coastal city of Vero Beach the next time you're in Florida. We're an easy drive from Orlando, West Palm Beach and Miami.

We're fully up and running for top-quality greenscreen production from our 80 ft. (40 ft. across the back, and 20 ft. up each side wall) 180 degree pre-lit cyc using your equipment or ours (three Panasonic HPX3000 cameras with Canon HJ series zoom lenses, extensive lighting and dimming system, tripods with remote controls, top-shelf audio gear, monitors, P2 Mobile recording deck, switcher, Ultimatte HD, CamMate jib encoded by General Lift, and two luxurious motorhomes on site).

Creative possibilities really open up, though, when our high definition 3D live compositing virtual studio system arrives in five or six weeks. Manufactured by the Israeli firm Orad, our three cameras will be fully tracked into photo-realistic virtual environments (including from the encoded jib), allowing for fabulous creative possibilities and huge production savings (versus building actual sets or moving an entire cast and crew from on-location site to on-location site), and big post-production time and money savings due to the streamlined compositing.

If you use our facility, you'll be able to record the composited scenes to the P2 Mobile deck using the AVC-Intra 100 codec (or DVCPRO-HD if you prefer). However, you might find it advantageous to record three streams of 10 bit uncompressed to our very large and extensive 4Gbit SAN system. Stream 1 will consist of the live actors and real props, Stream 2 will consist of the tracked virtual set, and Stream 3 will consist of the two streams composited together. The advantage of this is that streams 1 & 2 can be color corrected separately, so the lighting and color of the real scene can match up perfectly with the virtual scene.

For your editing needs, we can do it for you, or you can do it yourself using our two Intel based dual-quad Final Cut Studio editing systems each with 16 gigs of RAM plus an identical dual-quad Final Cut Server system (providing up to 24 processor cores at your disposal).

You're welcome to use our facility and equipment entirely independent from our staff, our we can offer turn-key commercials, infomercials, music videos and talk shows (with huge Entertainment Tonight or ESPN Sportscenter-style sets to boot).

We'll be producing movies for ourselves, and we invite you to use our facility for that purpose too.

I hope you'll check out and then use and enjoy our new studio. We'll do anything and everything to make sure that you're satisfied, and will make every effort to meet your budget needs too.
