JCA has restored all seven series of Prime Suspect for ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
JCA commercial director Matt Bowman said it was a challenging series to work on. “The hundreds of hours stored on uncut rushes reels needed conforming and eyematching to the SD TX master,” he said.
“Originally shot on 16mm and delivered in a number of formats, we had to handle the material with great care.
“By hand painting and applying grain treatments in a delicate manner, we managed to get an HD master of a similar quality to a 35mm film production, which is therefore suitable for HD transmission and Blu Ray distribution.”
