Searle Street Post in Cape Town South Africa has upgraded its digital dailies workflow from Bones Dailies to Flexxity Dailies. Dailies operator at Searle Street Post Andrew Giddey says Flexxity is stable versatile and a highly intelligent system that makes the dailies process enjoyable and successful day after day. Searle Street Post works with a lot of ProRes files coming from Arri Alexa ArriRaw Red and other acquisition formats which Flexxity Dailies ingests and reads natively without the need for transcoding.  This ensures that high quality compressed content is supported throughout the entire process all the way to the finished product.  Flexxity is among the first Linux based software solutions to offer native ProRes support.
