The suite is based around a Stereoscopic Pablo, Quantel's 4K real-time grading system, which can grade up to 4K images for digital cinema as well as HD and SD for TV.
The suite can also display stereo-scopic 3D material and manipulate it in real time. According to the management of both companies, the move is part of an ongoing joint-venture between Axis and Concrete.
Axis Films managing director Paul Carter said he had been looking for some space in Soho before he began discussions with Concrete: “With new data cameras such as the Red, the Viper or the Silicon Imaging SI-2K, our customers are particularly interested in workflow and it made sense to join forces with a post company.”
Concrete managing director David Cox was keen to set up a strategic alliance with a camera hire company. “Working with Axis means we can offer a better end-to-end service. This reflects the market demand for more joined-up thinking between post and production,” he said.
The two companies recently worked on a Red camera project, a debut music video for former G4 singer Jonathan Ansell. Axis provided the camera backup and accessories and Concrete did the post work.
Concrete provided SD clips for the offline and full quality files for the final online and grade, which was done on a Mistika HD.
Axis Post is part of Axis Films.
