5D systems increases capability for digital film producers

Media solutions developer 5D will reveal additions to its family of compositing, visual effects, colour grading, and record and review systems at NAB2002 – booth S3908.
Post-production solutions such as 5D Cyborg, 5D Colossus and 5D Commander will feature job re-constructions to tell the story of how 5D products improve digital intermediate workflow for motion pictures and high-end post-production.
5D Colossus, the software-based digital grading and mastering system, has been used by The Post House to grade and master over 3,000 shots on 'The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring' – winner of multiple BAFTA, Golden Globe and Academy Awards, including the Oscar for Best Cinematography.
The system is now being used to grade and master the second and third films in the trilogy, 'The Two Towers' and 'The Return of the King', bringing the total shots to around 10,000.
Adding to this success, 5D’s Cyborg effects editor and 5D Commander record and review station, are playing key roles within digital intermediate pipelines at visual effects studios worldwide, delivering significant operational cost savings on a range of award-winning and box-office successes. Films involving 5D systems include – 'A Beautiful Mind', 'Vanilla Sky', 'We Were Soldiers', 'Black Hawk Down' and 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'.
5D also recently provided 5D Cyborg and 5D Colossus systems for an Academy Awards Promotional Trailer which was shown in 16,000 cinemas across the USA prior to the 74th Academy Awards on March 24th.
“It’s a great thrill to us that 5D systems are at the core of the motion picture industry, creating stunning visual effects and finessing some of today’s biggest theatrical releases,” said Marc Dando, a Director at 5D. “5D systems support digital artists, cinematographers and directors in the pursuit of their artistic and creative visions. Crucially, 5D systems also provide improved productivity and significant cost savings in day-to-day operation. It’s our aim to keep delivering movie-makers and visual effects artists with the best solutions to achieve their goals.”
