"Our efficiency while using Teresis OnlineÃ¢Â„Â¢ is immeasurable," said Scott Young, Norsemen's post production supervisor. "The greatest part about the Teresis system is its ability to instantly provide video, audio and timecode without a tape just by simply hopping onto the Internet. Having media available to so many users at the same time eliminates the need for A/V carts, lugging tape decks around and having to generate multiple copies of all footage."
The Norsemen team also appreciates the benefits Teresis brings to their asset management processes. "Dealing with legal issues related to television shows that we've produced in the past used to require our post team to track down pieces of video, which took a great deal of time and used up very valuable resources," added Norsemen's Vice President of Production, Jeffrey Berk. "Now if we need to review video, it's just a matter of a few mouse clicks."
