The technical support units are the kitchen where most forms of drama and art get the final touch. The quality of the final product depends on how good the appliances and on how skilled the workers in that kitchen are. In EMPC, there are many, though very much integrated technical post-production support units.
They include both linear and simple cut editing divisions. Linear editing divisions each have from 3 to 4 digital video sets, a digital mixer, a control unit, a digital effects console, a colour control console, a sub-title-writer, and a sound mixer.
Hi-tech non-linear divisions each include:
An edit box, enabling editors to change and adjust the colours of each shot as required, with the potential also of making colour drawings.
A non-linear Hal drawing, photography and editing unit complete with a camera.
A non-linear Henry drawing and special effects editing unit.
An Avid (1000XC) unit.
A sound mixing unit.
