Non-Linear Editing 

Non-linear editing allows you to move, lengthen, shorten, insert, delete or modify video scenes, audio clips and titles without having to re-edit your material after the change, as you would have to do in a linear editing suite. This enables change and experimentation that was impossible or too costly in a linear editing suite, to become routine and affordable in our non-linear editing suites. Because of this, the customer doesn’t have to be present in the editing suite during the entire editing process. You can be present during the final editing stages with the assurance that any changes you wish can be made.

Non-linear editing adds creativity, flexibility, and saves you money! It is the only solution for high quality, cost effective digital post production.
