The

GRADING

& VISION

We are highly regarded in the features and drama worlds, as well as for commercials, music promos, channel promos and documentaries, and have also worked on some of the biggest music concerts, groundbreaking art installations and cinema trailers of the last ten years.

We understand the true value of grading, its partnership with finishing, the connection with the audience – the transformation that beautiful colour grading can give – and we do it for clients all over the world…

GRADING SYSTEMS

4x RIO 4K

Recognised as one of the leading grading and finishing systems in the world, the Rio systems form the backbone of our longform and trailer work.  The Rio system is unique in that we conform, grade, finish and export from this network of machines straight to the broadcasters, utilising the Transkoder machines when needed.

1x RESOLVE 4K

Ubiquitously known throughout the world, the Resolve software enables our remote grading service. The most intuitive grading system on the market, it has worked on countless commercials, both locally and for our clients remotely. It is fast, has excellent tools, especially for face and object tracking, and is the only tool that allows remote grading. For more information.
