Media 100 Inc. (Marlboro, Mass.), a developer of advanced media systems, has installed its 844/X editing system into London-based Metropolis DVD. Metropolis DVD is the film, television and DVD-production arm of Metropolis Group, which includes Metropolis Studios.

Metropolis DVD, whose credits include Bryan Adams, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix and Elton John, plan to use 844/X to expand its creative services by offering its clientele a complete range of capabilities from world-class studio recording and CD mastering to DVD authoring and broadcast production.

"Systems like 844/X from Media 100 will do for the video post-production market what Pro Tools did for the pro studio market in the 1990s," said Mike Gillespie, head of new business at Metropolis Group. "Facilities that have invested hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars in post-production suites are now faced with a single product that will do it all for a fraction of the cost. We've been here before and learned our lessons--only this time, we don't have a substantial legacy of investments to deal with."

The 844/X system was purchased by Metropolis through a Media 100-authorized Soho reseller, New Media Research.
