The Scharff Weisberg Media Resource Center (MRC), a postproduction subsidiary of Scharff Weisberg with high definition capabilities, has moved out of its current space into a new 3,000 square foot facility on East 23rd Street.

Clients will be able to continue to take advantage of the MRC’s high-end postproduction resources, including 10-bit uncompressed high definition editing and encoding, while benefiting from the company’s new location and affiliation with co-tenant, Antenna Productions.

The Scharff Weisberg Media Resource Center was created to support the activities of Scharff Weisberg’s Staging and Systems Integration companies but has also developed a following among clients who need high-quality postproduction and DVD mastering. "We’ve seen a lot of work from arts institutions, media companies and independent producers," comments Media Resource Center’s Josh Nissim. "Our new location, office amenities and affiliations will be more accommodating to those clients."

Located at 220 East 23rd street, the new 3,000 square foot facility comprises six rooms offering full editing with a recently acquired HD system for 10-bit, uncompressed editing; HD Windows Media 9 and HD MPEG2 encoding; and duplication services. The new space also has several production suites, client lounge and kitchen along with sweeping city views and a location just two blocks from the subway.

MRC will be sharing space with Antenna Productions, an audio postproduction company catering to the film and television industry. "We will have a synergistic relationship, with MRC providing video services to Antenna’s clients and Antenna supplying audio services to ours," says Nissim. "We’re similar in the way we work so we’re both able to offer quality work at a reasonable price. The two companies complement each other nicely; together we provide a full-service, one-stop shopping experience for the client."

Scharff Weisberg is known for its high-profile work in numerous industries including broadcast and cable television, corporate presentations, Broadway, special events, themed environments, retail environments, and high-end consumer applications.

The Scharff Weisberg Media Resource Center provides postproduction services for the presentation professional. Services include presentation support; high and standard definition non-linear editing; professional DVD authoring, MPEG 2 and HD Windows Media 9 encoding; multimedia compression services; and video transfers, duplication and international standards conversion.
