Martin Baker started his post production career at the BBC at the time when the industry was transitioning from linear editing on 1” tape to digital formats and non-linear computer-based editing. During his 13 years as a broadcast editor, he specialized in short form and music performances as well as thousands of on-air promos.
In 2000, Martin set up Digital Heaven, an independent post production facility in West London and for the next six years worked on many more promos and was the senior editor on the iconic BBC music show, Top of the Pops. Martin chucked out the Avids in 2003 and successfully pioneered the use of Final Cut Pro for broadcast online editing.
In the same year, Digital Heaven expanded into software design and development for the post production industry, launching plug-ins for Final Cut Pro along with several standalone apps including the first multicamera editing solution for Final Cut Pro. SpeedScriber is the result of two years of design and development to bring automated transcription to the post production market.
