ENVY is a multi-award winning Post Production facility with 6 sites in Central London. They provide over 20 suites for Off-Line/On-Line editing, Grading, Sound, 2D and 3D VFX and have recently added two new divisions. ENVY has worked on a host of EMMY, BAFTA, RTS, Grierson and D&AD winners to name a few, and regularly work on household favourite shows Gogglebox, The Voice UK and TopGear.
We sat down with Daniel Sassen, CTO and Jai Cave, Technical Operations Director to hear how they are using Z by HP to power the organisation and how the Z4 rack, Z2 and Z Remote Boost products are not only the main infrastructure for the facilities, but are also the power behind ENVY Remote - a proprietary tool created by ENVY which is a remote and flexible editorial workflow solution.
Daniel shares that the challenge for ENVY was to create a solution that was not only great for hundreds of people working remotely, but also a hybrid solution that could very easily switch between people working locally and if they came into ENVY, or were working from home. Additionally they needed a system that was easy to scale - currently ENVY Remote can now handle the set up of 50 clients in a day.
Jai feels that ENVY Remote is a truly unique marketplace, including tools such as Storyboards, Live Chat, Notes, Tasks and the mobile apps; and most importantly has, and is, receiving glowing user feedback. He also feels that flexibility is now critical, and that this is how we will be working long term. He states that the post industry is going to change and that companies need to look at how they can adapt - warning that if they don’t adapt, they're going to be left behind.
