Light Iron which just celebrated its third anniversary has acquired an additional facility in Hollywood to support its growing Outpost mobile post-production services. 
 “This expansion signifies our continued commitment to advancing on-set and near-set post production services ” says Light Iron CFO Peter Cioni. “We have been a market leader in mobile services since opening in 2009 and a second facility empowers us to further our global reach.”
 The company recently launched a distribution channel for its systems. Called Outpost Enterprise this new program puts mobile systems in the hands of companies or individuals providing services to the production industry. Rental houses stages production companies post facilities and DITs can take possession of a mobile system for minimal upfront costs and only pay for the days they use it. Light Iron bills a predetermined rate to Outpost Enterprise members who can set their own rates to clients in order to create and grow new revenue opportunities.
 Light Iron will handle all of its Outpost activities at the new property including R&D fabrication shipping repairs training and support. In addition the facility will enable Light Iron to expand its Outpost University program. “The building is meant to be a resource for industry professionals who want to adopt progressive post production techniques. We’re moving our classroom to Cole and we’re increasing space for hands-on training ” adds Cioni.
 Members of the post-production community will recognize the new building as the executive offices of the former Laser Pacific which occupied the property from 2003 to 2011.
