Welsh facility adds support for Dolby Vision colour correction and IMF format delivery for Netflix
Welsh post production outfit Gorilla Group has chosen DaVinci Resolve Studio for UHD HDR delivery as part of a facility expansion that has added in support for Dolby Vision colour correction and IMF format delivery for Netflix.
Designed by Jigsaw24, the system features a dual boot, HP Z8 workstation running Linux and Windows, alongside an external crate featuring three NVIDIA Titan V 12GB graphics cards, 12 SSD slots for local storage and 40GB Ethernet. The suite relies on Sony BVM-X300 and Dolby PRM 4200 reference monitors.
Gorilla Group built the system after being asked to grade six part drama Traitors for Channel 4 and Netflix in collaboration with Goldcrest Post’s Jet Omoshebi.
Gorilla Group managing director Richard Moss said: “Traitors was our first time working in Dolby Vision, and we aimed to replicate Jet’s setup at Goldcrest to facilitate the process as much as possible. Since building the crate, it has become our IMF delivery transcoder box also.”
Moss added: “It’s a steep learning curve learning to deliver through the Netflix IMF workflow, and so we worked closely with Dolby and Netflix’s colour science teams to implement an ACES colour pipeline.”
DaVinci Resolve features a full nonlinear editor (NLE) together with an industry standard grading toolset.
