Blackmagic Design Inc. today announced that the United States Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center at Fort Rucker, Alabama, will be installing the company’s high-end Linux GPU-based DaVinci Resolve system.
The DaVinci Resolve will be used to perform a number of color correction and DI tasks for the Center.

“The sale of the Resolve to the US Army is a testament to the power and performance of the product line,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design.
Comprehensive Technical Group, Inc. (Atlanta, GA) handled overall integration responsibilities for the project and worked with Blackmagic Professional Services to ensure a successful transition to the Resolve system. “Working with Blackmagic Designs to deploy the Resolve system at the Combat Readiness Center presented a unique opportunity to raise the U.S. Army’s color correction and DI tasks to previously unparalleled levels. Our experiences in working with Blackmagic Designs on this project have far exceeded our already high expectations,” said Andy Slusher, Sales Manager, Comprehensive Technical Group, Inc.
