It can handle all the latest camera formats, so whether they are RED, ARRI, SONY etc, we can grade it. RAW up to 5K from RED as well as SONY’s 4K can all be graded in real-time off the RAW files for the ultimate in finish quality. In addition the system delivers an amazingly powerful set of real-time grading tools utilising Resolve’s node based architecture allowing for unlimited primaries, secondaries, power windows, one of the best multi-point tracking tools available, blurs and more. Once graded, we can deliver back in any file format at HD, 2K, and even 4K resolutions if required. Our calibrated monitors allow you to view your film or commercial in the highest resolution so that critical colour decisions can be made with 100% accuracy and peace of mind.
