RED+Lab

With the advent of 4K, 5K, and now 6K cinema pioneered by Red Digital Cinema, now comes the addition of a mobile on set post-production laboratory.  This mobile lab replaces many, if not all of the earliest post house lab jobs including; dailies audio syncing, dailies color correction, and dailies transcoding to NLE compatible file formats like ProRes and DNX.  You also get fully verified backup cloning of camera original footage from any camera source.  Add on-set iPad dailies and you have a complete metadata friendly setup, virtually eliminating many if not all of the costs post houses charge for these services.  The best part of this new process though, is the ease of mind that comes with knowing your camera original footage is clean and uncorrupted while you are still actively shooting it.

Along with these RED+Lab features you get live on-set color correction for up to two cameras, turning flat or overly contrasty camera output images into a final corrected look – monitored live, on set. This is then copied into the camera file metadata and accompanies the original files all the way to final color correction.  The DIT (Digital Imaging Technician) function accomplishes this first stage, the On Set Post workstation then provides the pre-post production functions of audio sync, primary color correction, and dailies generation. DP’s can rest easy that the look that they apply to the images on set will follow the footage through to the final stages intact.  The On Set Post workstation can now be positioned anywhere up to 1000 feet from set through the use of fiber optic technology, and archival LTO tape generation is on board as an option.
