At The Ark our Edit Suites are equipped with Avid Nitris DX, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premier, all capable of working simultaneously in HD with access to 250Tb of shared storage.
Our suites are online all of the time, removing the need for offline and no need for conforms. You get to see your footage at full quality for the duration of your edit, for the same cost as a traditional off-line/on-line workflow.
We can handle any HD or SD format you supply, as well as provide Graphics and Titles for your project. Examples can be provided upon request.
Just to be a little more flexible – all our suites come with After Effects, Photoshop and Boris Plug-ins, allowing the freedom to do that extra bit more at no extra cost.
The edit suite playouts are via Harding FPA and HD Legaliser. Any changes are made prior to export giving you piece of mind in advance of QAR and delivery.
Conversion processing is handled by a selection of the best tools in the business for broadcast legalising, aspect ratio conversion, up and down conversion and standards conversion. For when it matters most we have Alchemist Ph.C HD to provide deliverables in the highest possible quality.
The entire facility is based around a high end KVM (keyboard, vision, mouse) routing system enabling any workstation to be routed to any edit or desktop position. Using a high bandwidth network allows for fast, seamless project collaboration to reduce post production time and help ensure your TX deadlines are met.
After using The Ark for many years, I can say there really isn’t a better service in or out of Soho. The Ark not only service the industry, they service the individual. From the huge multi-episode delivery to the smallest, most intricate QC. With their fast and efficient workflow and awareness of Industry fluctuations they stand head and shoulders above other facilities.

CT Media have been working with The Ark for over three years for our post production and delivery needs. We represent a number of independent producers internationally and our biggest hurdle is ensuring that their content is technically high enough to meet international broadcast standards. The Ark work their magic in post, audio and delivery – bringing content up to spec. Although based in the USA we always send our material to The Ark. We trust Dan and his team 100% to get the job done at a fair price.
