Post-production company PostWorks New York has acquired the Tapehouse Companies and all of its affiliates (including Tapehouse Editorial, Tapehouse Digital Film, Tapehouse Broadband, Black Logic and The Anx), as well as SMA Realtime. Additionally, PostWorks has purchased 50% of audio post house Caterini Studios.

"In an age of shifting formats and technology, our goal is to provide a safe haven for producers to realize their projects," said Billy Baldwin, PostWorks CEO. "We are taking the best parts of these companies and bringing them forward into a new era of post-production that will surpass client's expectations and focus on service, not just services."

The new company, based in Manhattan's SoHo district (with the exception of The Anx, which will remain in its current downtown Manhattan location), will offer clients 25 Avid offline edit suites; two Discreet Inferno compositing suites; numerous Flame, Smoke and Maya 3-D workstations; two Spirit Datacines with Pogle MegDefs for color correction; a Quantel iQ and Sony-equipped HD linear bay; a Millenium machine; a da Vinci 2K; and two Avid DS HD suites.

In addition, the company will also house six Pro Tools mixing suites, a live recording room, a LaserGraphics film recorder, an Arri-Laser film recorder, a Teranex standards converter and a high-def screening room.

New employee titles include: longtime Tapehouse director of HD/data services Tim Spitzer will serve as the new company's VP of Operations; Todd Ruff, director of graphics; senior editor Peter Heady; Henry artist Jay Tillin; senior visual effects designer/supervisor Brian Benson; broadband manager Scott Ettin; CG artists Doug Johnson; Kuan Lin; and colorists John Crowley, Eric Alvarado, Alex Berman, Scott Olive and Sam Daley, to name just a few.
