PostWorks, New York selected FOR-A’s new 1M/E Hanabi HVS-1000HS digital switcher for its recently opened digital intermediate (DI) theater.
The DI theater officially opened in October and has already completed digital mastering for several commercial and long-form television and feature film projects. It is the first theater on the East Coast designed specifically for DI mastering.
Digital intermediate is the replacement of film’s final optical processing with a digital master. Color correction, titles and visual effects can be pre-visualized in real-time and changed instantly. A finished 2K master can be output to film or any format in multiple resolutions, frame rates and aspect ratios.
The Hanabi switcher supports 1080i/59.94, 1080p/23.98, 720p/59.94, and other major HD and SD formats. The switcher is a 2RU size and comes with a DVE card installed.
