(Geneva, Switzerland--February 2, 2011) Marquise Technologies, designer of high-end post-production solutions, has announced today that Eurolab, one of the key film labs in Italy, has acquired a M I S T to install with their telecine suite.
Eurolab needed an alternative to traditional film to tape workflow for their transfers. They have found in M I S T the perfect solution: M I S T, like a VTR would do, captures the video signal directly into data (DPX, Cineon, QuickTime, etc). As a virtual telecine, M I S T is able to perform a best light or scene-by-scene transfer thanks to its primary grading and scene detection functions. M I S T also offers the ability to render the data files into any other type of format, like JPEG2000, for further purpose.
“Our telecine suites are still working a lot and we needed a tool more flexible, more future-oriented than a traditional VTR” comments Andrea Terilli, Operations Manager at Eurolab.
Not only replacing a VTR, M I S T is also directly connected to the company SAN with fiber channel. The transferred media are now immediately available for the editing rooms in a workable format, in HD resolution.
“We are very happy about this installation at Eurolab” says Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies, “it illustrates exactly the purpose of M I S T, a flexible DI deck able to bridge the video world with the data world, in a very efficient and cost effective way”.
M I S T has been installed on a certified HP Z800 workstation and 5TB of local attached storage, providing enough performance to play back HD and 2K in real-time, which is critical for Eurolab’s workflow.
