The immediate appointment will allow root6 to sell and support the Baselight grading and finishing family including Baselight Four and Eight systems enabling real-time 4K grading for both film and video deliverables.
After extensive research and testing root6 chose the Baselight grading system to compliment its existing DI product range that includes DVS (Clipster real-time 2K editing) and MTI (Correct - leading digital film restoration tools).
John Harris, root6 comments on the appointment: "With the real uptake in DI technology taking place now we needed to find a digital grader that would fit into our recommended workflow and provide the best time, quality and cost benefits to our clients. Baselight was the only system to do this. The FilmLight products and their experienced staff combined with our DI knowledge will place root6 as the leading provider of DI workflows to the UK industry."
Peter Stothart, Commercial Director, FilmLight adds: "We chose to partner with root6 due to their extensive experience with both video and film facilities and their ability to provide a complete DI workflow to these places. With announcements we are making at NAB and the rise of DI in Soho we are very excited about this partnership."
