Since 1977, MIDCAN has been a leader in Western Canada’s film and television industry. Servicing every genre of film, television, corporate and commercial production, MIDCAN employs some of Manitoba’s most talented production personnel. Our 16,000 square foot facility is home to thirteen HD/SD non-linear edit suites, and Manitoba’s largest fleet of broadcast cameras.
MIDCAN’s edit suites range from AVID NITRIS DS 444 to Final Cut Pro, and we’ve got everything in between. Post services also include HD down conversion, digital dailies, colour timing, multi-format transfer, closed captioning and descriptive video.
Six of our offline suites are set up on a LAN share storage system, which allows multiple editors and assistants to work on the same project at one time. We also have office space available for producers and production managers, so your production team can be in close contact for the duration of the post process. Offline tenants have 24/7 access to the facilities, and rentals include the use of telephones, wireless internet, and other office essentials.
MIDCAN’s premiere online/colour timing suite has serviced many award winning films, documentaries and television series, including Lifetime Television’s #1 and #3 top rated productions. Our Senior Colourist, Tony Wytinck, is one of the most experienced online editors on the Prairies.
MIDCAN’s 5.1 Dolby Certified Digital Mixing and Print Master facility is accompanied by multiple ProTools suites for dialogue and SFX editing, and a 760 square foot recording studio. SFX rooms are 5.1 and stereo capable, giving the engineer the option to edit in surround, which often saves time in the mix. We also offer ADR services, and are able to link with any other studio in the world through Source Connect and ISDN.
MIDCAN is not only a post-production house, but Manitoba’s largest supplier of cameras & crews. Our rentals department has over thirty broadcast quality cameras in stock, including SONY’s F900R HDCAM with Cine-Lenses and a full movie support package.
Aside from all this, MIDCAN’s spacious facility also houses a 1050 square foot production studio, and a state of the art video-conferencing boardroom. We are also a Fuji Film Elite Dealer, with full service duplication and multi-media departments.
