LAS VEGAS — Colorfront's (www.colorfront.com) On-Set Dailies solution is being shown by several partners at this year’s NAB show. ALT Systems, BandPro, Canon, Codex Digital, DotHill, Sony and theHPA Post Pit are all hosting demonstrations of the system, which has become widely adopted by film and episodic TV production.
On-Set Dailies delivers an all-embracing approach to digital dailies workflow by integrating production-proven tools for dailies work, including playback and sync, QC, color grading, audio and metadata management. The system employs high-end color and image science, and allows users to deliver media at faster-than-realtime all common file formats.
The current software release enables cinematographers to go beyond traditional HD monitoring and review, enabling them to work with 3K, 4K and 5K RAW material in post-ready 4K quality — either on-set, near-set, or at their favorite facility. Along with de-Bayer, On-Set Dailies delivers wide support for the latest digital cinematography cameras shooting at 48/60fps, including Sony’s F65 RAW, SRFile (SStP) and XDCAM EX, Red Epic R3D, Alexa Studio 4K Anamorphic, Canon C300, Panasonic P2 and GoPro.
Many features using Alexa Arri Raw and F65 Raw workflows, as well as high-profile HD episodic TV shows shooting ProRes, have selected Colorfront’s On-Set Dailies. The system debuted at last year’s NAB. It has since been used on the upcoming James Bond 007 movie Skyfall, as well as on The Avengers, This Is 40, R.I.P.D., World War Z, The Campaign, Gangster Squad, Gambit, Of Men And Mavericks, and The Last Stand.
On the television front, the On-Set Dailies system has been used on CSI:Miami, Desperate Housewives, House, The Lying Game, NCIS: LA, Private Practice, Scandal, Sons Of Anarchy, and Undercover Boss, among others.
