Shooters Post & Transfer add pristine look with Snell & Wilcox Niagra HD

At Shooters Post & Transfer post-production firm in Philadelphia, producers give projects a clean look and sound using Snell & Wilcox’s Niagra HD noise and grain management system.
Shooters Post & Transfer, a Philadelphia-based post-production firm, is using the Snell & Wilcox Niagra high-definition noise and grain management system to provide a smooth, clean look for projects ranging from feature films to commercial spots and material for corporate, industrial, and political markets.

Film grain and noise problems are much more significant in HD productions than in standard definition work because the resolution of the format is more revealing and viewer expectations are higher. Through seamless integration with da Vinci's 2K color corrector, the Niagra allows the post-production company to produce material that looks pristine in HD and SD.

An intuitive interface allows operators to change grain reduction as needed depending on the film stock in use. Enhancement controls allow the sharpness of output images to be improved, while a combination of linear and nonlinear processes generate edge detection and peaking signals to ensure that overshoots and ringing are minimized.
