ARRI Germany Invests In Additional Film Master And Film Cutter

Digital Vision, the premier supplier of picture enhancement systems for film and television post-production, is pleased to announce that ARRI Film & TV Services GmbH, has invested in a fourth Digital Vision Film Master grading and finishing system and a Film Cutter assist station for its Munich office where it will be primarily used for longform broadcast work.
Markus Kannewischer, ARRI Film & TV Services CTO, commented: "We have about 60 television projects a year and to cope with that you need a very fast system such as the Film Master. With television you only have a couple of days to do the grade, not the four to six weeks you get with feature film Digital Intermediate and you need a system that can cope with that throughput. We find that Film Master does that very well."
Beyond speed, Kannewischer has also been impressed with the Film Master which delivers clean and sharp pictures even when the source material is underexposed. Aside from the technology, it is also the responsiveness of the Digital Vision support staff that made the decision to add more systems an easy one. He said: "They understand that we use it each and every day and that the system must always run. Any problems we ever have with it are therefore fixed very fast and flexibly."
Crucial to ARRI's choice of Film Master, though, was the ease with which the company could migrate people from what Kannewischer refers to as 'the old world' of linear to the new one of digital nonlinear grading.
He said: "We have many trained people here familiar with the old world machines and the way the Film Master works and handles is very similar. That has enabled us to transfer colourists and clients over to the new machine very easily. In fact, switching them from hardware-based grading to nonlinear software grading has been much easier than expected, and everyone from customers to colourists likes the system for that very reason."
Simon Cuff, President and COO of Digital Vision, said: "Providing a system that allows easy migration from linear to non-linear has always been one of the great advantages of Film Master. Talent is what drives this industry and our goal is to give the colourists the interface and user experience they desire to maximise their own creativity and increase throughput."
