Filmworkers adds Quantel eQ for RED camera post efficiency
In response to the heavy use of RED cameras in Nashville, TN, post house Filmworkers has added new equipment, new software and professional expertise.
Working closely with Quantel, Filmworkers has added the company’s eQ system to make it possible to move productions shot on the RED camera through post production with efficient, high-quality, multilayer editing, and a 4:4:4 RGB color space capability.
Quantel’s eQ offers the ability to conform a multilayer Final Cut project seamlessly from native RED files. This simplifies post production of RED projects by eliminating the need to convert material before finishing or color correction can begin. The result is a 75 percent reduction in the time needed to conform.
The color corrector is fed 4:4:4 RGB, the largest spectrum available in the HDTV arena, and maintains this quality throughout finishing edit and even deliverables, which are available on 4:4:4 HDCAM SR tape.
