NEBRAS FILMS DEPLOYS FIVE LEADER RASTERIZERS IN NEW STUDIO
SUPPLIED BY DISTRIBUTION PARTNER JIGSAW24, TO BE USED AS MASTER REFERENCE TEST INSTRUMENTS
Nebras Films, one of the largest film production service providers in the Middle East, has chosen Leader LV7390 and LV7770 rasterizers for its new postproduction studios in Riyadh. Supplied by Leader distribution partner Jigsaw24, the rasterizers will be used as master reference test instruments in the facility’s colour grading, editing and compositing suites.
Nebras Films is the only full-service movie production studio in Saudi Arabia. Located in the heart of Riyadh, their recently launched 7,500 square foot post facility offers advanced film-making technology including editing suites (Flame, Avid, Nuke), Avid ProTools 12 with S6 Desk (7.1 Surround Sound Capabilities), (Baselight) Colour Correction, Digital Intermediates, 2D/ 3D Animation.
“We are fully up and running with eight full-time post staff, now being supplemented with talent from Europe and the Middle East,” comments Post-Production Supervisor Cian McLysaght. “Our entire operation is file-based, centred around ROOT6 Technology’s ContentAgent which functions as a coordinating hub. The Leader rasterizers enable our editors to check the signal quality of video and audio content at any point in the workflow. Each LV7390 is equipped to support 4K/UHD programme production and post as well as 4x3G HD- SDI.”
“Five instruments have been delivered, comprising two LV7390 and three LV7770,” adds Leader Europe Business Development Manager Kevin Salvidge. “Our rasterizers are very popular for postproduction applications as they give operators the ability to inspect waveforms, colour vectors and signal levels in very precise detail on a much larger screen than can be accommodated in a portable instrument.” The Leader LV7390 is a compact 1U 3G/HD/SD-SDI rasterizer which can be used to measure up to four source channels.
