KMP Further Integrates Digital Vision

A firm that provides innovative image restoration, enhancement, colour correction and data conforming systems for movie makers, Digital Vision has announced that FotoKem's Keep Me Posted (KMP) has expanded its commitment to the company.
This involves a hardware, storage, and software upgrade to its existing Nucoda Film Master.
Furthering its allegiance to Digital Vision, it also purchased a second Nucoda Film Master grading system running the 2010 software release including DVO Enhance noise and grain reduction option.
Keep Me Posted specialises in television episodic and commercial finishing and is part of the FotoKem network of companies that includes Spy Post, LA Studios and nextLAB.
Burbank's Keep Me Posted has fully integrated the Nucoda Film Masters into the company's workflow, creating an end-to-end file-based system and a completely Avid-centric TV pipeline.
Based on the success the facility experienced over the first few weeks using the newly upgraded Film Master running 2010 software, Keep Me Posted ordered a second system. At the beginning of next year, it will be one of the first Hollywood customers to take delivery of the new Digital Vision Precision colour panel, recently unveiled at IBC.
The decision to choose the Nucoda Film Masters was based on three factors: the ease of integration into its file-based architecture, the need for engineering excellence, and the company’s focus on time sensitive deadlines and creative artistic requirements.
FotoKem boss, Paul Chapman, commented that the Digital Vision systems clearly met the facility's demanding technical requirements.
"When we were putting the pieces of a file-based, start-to-finish workflow in place, we took a hard look at the field of appropriate competitors. It was imperative that there was an ease of integration into the colourist's workflow in tandem with the critical need for the system to fit smoothly into our file-based, ingest-to-storage pipeline.
"The Nucoda Film Master dropped seamlessly into our storage architecture, which immediately differentiated it from the competition.
"Our engineering team evaluated Nucoda's interoperability and found that the PC-based system was the best choice for us, by far.
"Integrating with Avid, Facilis, and the other technologies in the pipeline has been an absolutely straightforward process. No other system came close to that promise, and Digital Vision delivered on it," he said.
Hawk Hamilton, Vice President at KMP noted: "We work with the pre-eminent content creators in the industry, and are ready to support their highly demanding schedules and creative needs without missing a beat.
"We are focused on creating a top tier experience for all of our customers and the second Nucoda Film Master is a key component in our ability to provide that calibre of responsive customer service.
"The transition process for our talented colourists to get up to speed has been flawless. The training, testing and troubleshooting done by the experts on the Digital Vision team ensured that our colourists were Nucoda Film Master fluent very quickly."
Bruno Munger, Senior Product Manager of Digital Vision, said: "The team at Keep Me Posted and FotoKem are experts with keen vision about where the post production market is heading.
"We are delighted that they see the 2010 Nucoda product line as a perfect fit for their file-based pipeline as they work with the top producers in Hollywood. It has been fantastic to collaborate with the creative and engineering teams at both FotoKem and KMP and we look forward to continuing our involvement in these outstanding facilities."
