Paris-based production company Cinemage, part of Groupe Image, will use Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 9 for Linux [pictured] in its new 4K post production facility, the first such facility in Europe.
Michel Cazaubiel, CEO of Group Image, decided to build a facility ready for 4K feature film work, with guidance from installation specialist Magic Hour. The new installation includes an 8 GPU Linux based DaVinci Resolve 0 suite used for real time colour grading of 2K and 4K workflows, as well as a Mac running Resolve for processing dailies. The two systems are connected to two 250 terabyte SAN’s and use 4K projectors for viewing and grading and SSL audio mixing for DTS and Dolby Digital Surround sound systems.
Cazaubiel commented: “We turned to Blackmagic Design reseller Magic Hour to assist us with the technical setup and to build our most impressive DaVinci Resolve system yet.”
Dominque Buovac, Cinemage technical director, added: “Using DaVinci Resolve for our 4K post facility was key as it’s the only software on the market that can offer the highest performing 4K colour grading for AATON Delta Penelope, ARRI Alexa and RED EPIC files, which we frequently work with. Also as a Resolve user of two years, I trust the brand and knew that it would be the perfect fit for Cinemage. The decision was simple. With the recent user interface overhaul in Resolve 9, it’s even easier to navigate and further streamlines my project import, export and selection workflow.”
