Blackmagic Design today announced that Mercury Post, one of Koreaâ€™s fastest growing post-production houses, has purchased and installed version 7 of the DaVinci Resolve non-linear color correction system. Since the installation of the 8 GPU Resolve system in July, Mercury has already completed three high-profile television advertising spots for Hyundai Motors â€œK7â€?, McDonalds and Samsungâ€™s â€œGalaxy Phoneâ€?, using the Resolveâ€™s power and scalability to create and finish high profile spots quickly.
Since its founding in 2004, Mercury has quickly become known as one of the top advertising post houses in Korea, handling work for Hyundai, Nikon, Korail and AIG. With a reputation built around both top artists and top technology, Mercury is using the Resolve in conjunction with a post-production workflow that includes the latest Red, Final Cut Pro and Scanity film scanning technology. Through the Resolve, Mercury is able to provide the industryâ€™s best color correction and 3D grading technology on any type of film format or data type.
â€œWe are 100 percent satisfied with our purchase of the new version of Resolve,â€? said Mr. Dongsoo Kim, Executive Director at Mercury Post. â€œWith the Resolve, we have already finished three graphic-intensive projects and have already booked more projects solely based on what we can do with the Resolve. It is a huge competitive advantage for us to be able to say that we have the most powerful color correction capabilities of any post house in Korea.â€?
About DaVinci Resolve
The industry standard for color correction, Blackmagic Designâ€™s DaVinci Resolve is unique as it supports more real time color correction than any other system. DaVinci Resolve is not limited by the performance of the computer itâ€™s running on. DaVinci Resolve eliminates this performance barrier because its based on a cluster of computers with high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time. This means DaVinci Resolve has the power of a super computer for the real time performance of all color grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, power windowsâ„¢, multi point tracking, blurs, and more. Even native 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from RED raw R3D files can be handled with ease.
