Local post-production tool developers announce strategic collaboration

13 Feb 2018

Local media software companies Kiwa Digital and The Cargo Cult have announced a collaboration in response to forecasts of explosive demand for localised media content.

Auckland-based Kiwa Digital is the developer of VoiceQ post-production software and Wellington-based The Cargo Cult is the developer of the audio post-production tool Conformalizer.

VoiceQ is a systemised software solution that automates dialogue replacement in the post-production stage of film and television production.

It prides itself on the precision of its syncing process and the quality performance achieved.

Conformalizer is an audio post production tool that allows sound editors to automatically conform and rebalance audio data to match a changed picture cut. It works by comparing picture EDLs, XML, cutlists or change notes and creating a new ‘change EDL’ which reflects the difference between two versions of the picture. 

Conformalizer can then automatically conform Pro Tools sessions, databases and mix automation to match the new version of the cut.

The new VoiceQ release out today integrates Conformalizer into the VoiceQ workflow, allowing studio engineers to quickly make large script and media changes, a common requirement in post-production.

“The industry is calling for global collaboration and efficiencies and for us, this can only be achieved by integrating ‘best in breed’ studio and cloud tools,” says VoiceQ CEO Steven Renata.

“Our focus with this latest development has been on taking the best technology available,” says Renata.
