Cardiff post house Mwnci has bought a Baselight HD colour-grading system and Baselight Kompressor from FilmLight.

The new kit will work alongside the company’s existing Avid editing systems and will be used on a number of upcoming TV projects including Whites for BBC2.

Mwnci managing director Richard Moss said: “We currently have over 50 Avid DS, Symphony Nitris and Media Composer work stations based over three sites, so we wanted a grading system that would work seamlessly with our existing Avid kit.

“Baselight allows us to take sequences from the Avid system into the Baselight for grade and then back into the Avid for finishing using the same file format, making our workflow incredibly efficient.”

Baselight HD works with the Baselight Kompressor to provide interoperability between Baselight grading operations and Avid editing systems without the need to copy media.

Baselight Kompressor provides the ability to natively mount Avid storage and browse, read or write native Avid MXF media.

Mwnci specialises in editing film and video for television. The company recently worked on Private Life of a Masterpiece and Tribe with Bruce Parry for BBC2 and Everest ER for BBC4.
