Our unique 'Cinevantage' direct-to-print services are based on the Cinevator film recorder. This advanced system provides direct-to-print film output enabling our customers to make huge savings compared with traditional print processes. Cinevantage provides real-time recording and outputs direct-to-print from 2K resolution log .dpx image files, .wav, Dolby MOD and DTS/Datasat audio formats simultaneously. This eliminates the need for intermediate stock, sound negative and additional processing. Time is saved and costs are minimised.
We have several Apple Final Cut Pro editing systems located in our modern, air-conditioned and comfortable edit suites. The FCPs are part of our efficient and collaborative end-to-end digital workflow that connects all our DI and digital post systems via high-speed network and our BrightDrive shared storage environment.
Our new, purpose-built audio suite is equipped with the latest advances in sound technology, making it perfect for all motion picture, television and radio productions. Every detail has been meticulously executed, providing you with a truly creative and dynamic facility.
Our professional calibration tools ensure total stability and evenness so that we can guarantee consistency for every print. Our online projectors are fitted inline to the processing machines, making sure that every foot of film processed is screened. Check prints are projected playing any sound format including SR, SR-D or DTS. Process chemicals are analysed in our in-house laboratory by a team of chemists before use, and are monitored online and on a 6-hourly basis. Filmlab also participates in the Deluxe Laboratory Quality Control process control system.
We use state-of-the-art high speed, bi-directional, continuous contact 35 mm and 16 mm film processing machines that are regularly calibrated to comply with international standards and procedures. Chemicals and reagents used in our processes are Laboratory Grade and sourced from reputable international brands. In addition, they are subjected stringent quality checks prior to use.
