Dailies & Digital LAB

Dailies are an integral part of the production process.  The footage from each day of filming needs to be quickly and efficiently delivered to multiple stakeholders in a variety of formats.  We provide traditional laboratory services for new file-based productions on-set, near-set, or from our facilities including:

  • Synchronizing audio
  • Creating and applying scene specific color looks
  • Adjusting stereoscopic 3D alignment and convergence
  • Transcoding media to AVID or Final Cut for editorial
  • Creating digital dailies for upload, streaming, or iPad
  • Outputting DVDs or other viewing formats
  • Archiving and verifying data backup
  • Delivering files and media electronically “faster than FedEx”

Because our background is post-production, we always have an eye on the final deliverable during the dailies process.  This means that we have constant quality control, and we preserve the metadata from the camera negative for easy VFX pulls, data or tape conform, and digital intermediate finishing.

Our portable systems feature  super-core processors to handle dailies, color correction, and transcoding with 4k S3D or mono playback.
