WESTMINSTER, GREATER LONDON January 16, 2024 – Award-winning post-production facility Picture Shop has signed a multi-year contract with Jigsaw24 Mediafor Avid NEXIS® Storage and Media Composer Enterprise subscriptions and support. The new deal sees Picture Shop transition to Avid’s subscription model for storage and includes technology and services across all Picture Shop facilities in the UK.
