Professionalism meets passion
Fine tuning for your production - from a single source
All sorts of different specialists working with one goal: an optimum product in picture and sound. From creative grading, via mixing and voice recording in the sound studio all the way to the editing of a trailer, everything goes hand in hand – punctually and reliably. Finally, we check the result against the technical specifications issued in each case.
Our grading suites are equipped with Nucoda and DaVinci colour correctors. The extensive technical equipment naturally also includes 4K HDR reference monitors and, for cinema productions, a 4K laser phosphor projection system. Our colourists have expertise in both fields gained over many years. The spectrum here extends from historical productions, via fiction, documentaries and TV series, all the way to concerts for VOD.
For our colourists, professional monitors are the absolute reference tool for their work. It is for that reason that we use various different calibrated monitors, which with OLED and LCD panels are capable of 4K and HDR.
The grading process in our cinema suite is a very special experience. Take a seat on the sofa and enjoy the unique projection. Guaranteeing this is the 4K laser phosphor projector, which even shows colour corrections in the P3 colour space.
The wish for higher picture quality is being ever better fulfilled through the development of new displays. With high dynamic range a new world is opening up in respect of such range and of creative video design. Our team has the required expertise and experience for the demanding HDR grading process.
Professional dialog recordings require professionals, including the voice actors. We work with all sorts of voice talents, including on request in different languages. In addition to classic voiceover recordings, our portfolio also includes ADR, audio books and audio descriptions. the voice actor does not have to be on-site, as the recordings can also be done online.
Good sound effects recordings make a film feel authentic and alive - especially if they are tailored to the characteristics of the production. It`s exactly what we create with our Foley stage, whether it`s for a new production or when dealing with missing sound in historical film material.
Be it for movies, documentaries or trailers for film festivals, editing plays a major role in adapting a production in length and order. The editorial directive generally comes here from the client, while the technical and creative implementation is provided by our experienced cutters. For carrying out the required work we have multiple editing suites at our disposal, enabling us to act promptly and flexibly, including in particular in the case of urgent and last-minute project requests.
Public service broadcasters, independent television channels and international VOD platforms sometimes have very different technical guidelines for the target format to be delivered. We take on these bespoke requirements and produce the final broadcast files to the relevant specifications. And for cinema use we produce digital masters for the big screen in DCDM or DCP form.
Technical checks (QC)
he extensive guidelines of broadcasters, archives and streaming services for content output require a technically flawless product for it to be suitable for broadcast. That can already play a role when buying productions as part of a licence deal, but above all also in the case of final technical acceptance.
Due to the great variety of formats and standards it is essential to have experienced employees who are also able to write up the results of the checks in German and English. We are well equipped here on the technical front too – tests can be done up to a resolution of 4K and in HDR format. And for files we have automated QC tools, such as Baton and Vidchecker.
