Stockholm, Sweden â€“ 4th April, 2008 â€“ Digital Vision, premiere provider of picture enhancement systems for film and television post production, is pleased to announce that Europeâ€™s latest state-of-the-art film lab, Kodak Cinelabs in Spain, has installed a Digital Vision Film Master.
The new lab is situated at Ciudad de la Luz in Alicante, one of the most modern film studios in Europe. Featuring six stages and two giant backlots, Ciudad de la Luz is attracting enough projects that Kodak felt fully justified in opening a front-end lab onsite to address the growing need for high-quality processing and digital services for film and television production.
The Film Master sits at the heart of the new facilityâ€™s digital dailies service. â€œIt provides exceptional quality and performance,â€? states JesÃºs Haro, technical manager for Kodak DivisiÃ³n de Cine Profesional. â€œWe are using it for digital dailies, commercials and television work, and it provides us with many options and excellent speed for nonlinear colour grading.â€?
Installed and integrated by Digital Visionâ€™s Spanish reseller Trigital, Kodak Cinelabs boasts an impressive range of kit ranging from the Film Master itself through a Spirit 2k datacine, Barco DP90P 2k projector and DVS SAN configured with near line storage, all designed to provide the best and most flexible digital workflow possible.
â€œThe Film Master is currently one of the most advanced grading software systemsâ€?, says Pedro Escalona, Sales Manager for Trigital. â€œIt is a compact, efficient and user-friendly system based on the latest GPU technology and Intel quad-core processors. Its distinguishing feature is that Digital Vision has focussed on investing time and resources in software rather than in hardware.â€?
â€œKodak Cinelabs is an impressive set-up; a truly modern film lab that has been designed to be flexible to customer needs from the ground up,â€? comments Digital Vision COO, Simon Cuff. “We are delighted that Film Master is an integral part of Cinelabs and is key to the new services and workflows that Kodak is planning to introduce to the market.”
