HDR monitor, new processing machines – important developments at the NFI Filmlab

Adapting to the new standards of streaming service providers and productions shooting in 4K with growing requirements of quality and storage capacity, important technical developments were carried out at the Filmlab in 2021. For the creation of high dynamic range motion picture, we purchased a 4K HDR monitor, moreover, we developed our color grading capacity by introducing a Filmlight Baselight Two system. This system handles RAW footage directly and has 220 TB of storage capacity.

We also pay special attention to renewing analogue technology. We installed new copy machines and planning to purchase three new, modern, and ecological processing machines by 2023, providing the possibility of shootings on film for the long term.
