Spy Post Gets Pablo Colour Correction System

A San Francisco post house known for its work in commercials and feature film post production, Spy Post, has purchased a Quantel Pablo 4K non-linear colour correction system.
The Pablo is equipped with a full raft of Quantel's MME acceleration technology as well as Quantel's Stereo 3D toolset.
The top-of-the-range Pablo has been purchased as part of the major expansion program put in place at Spy Post following its recent acquisition by FotoKem, one of Hollywood's most established post production facilities.
The new unit, together with new personnel recruited by Spy Post, means the company can now offer a complete menu of pre-production, production and post production services, including visual effects and design for commercials and feature films.
With renovation and expansion work already under way, Spy Post will soon also boast the first commercially available stereoscopic DI theatre in San Francisco, powered by the Stereo 3D-equipped Pablo colour correction and DI system.
FotoKem's Burbank headquarters is itself home to multiple Quantel Pablo systems built around a Genetic Engineering shared workflow infrastructure. all of FotoKem's services will be accessible in San Francisco, available either in-house or through a high speed connection to FotoKem's Burbank campus.
Bill Schultz, FotoKem SVP and General Manager, Digital Film Services, said: "The creative and technical excellence of film industry professionals in the Bay area is world renowned. Extending our service range to support them is a natural choice. Via our high bandwidth connectivity, we're able to maintain absolute cohesion in work being produced at Spy Post and our existing facilities in Los Angeles at "Keep Me Posted" and the main FotoKem campus."
Eric Thorne, Quantel Vice President of Sales, said: "Spy Post has an excellent reputation for the quality of its commercials, FX and DI post work in the Bay area and we're delighted that they have chosen to expand their range of services with Quantel technology.
"And combined with the immense resources and capabilities of FotoKem, there is now a formidable new presence in the San Francisco market which will be welcomed by ad agencies and film directors alike."
