BURBANK, CA — Prasad (www.prasadcorp.com), which provides end-to-end solutions for film and digital workflows, has formed a strategic partnership with Technicolor PostWorks New York (www.technicolorpwny.com) to provide a Scanity HDR 4K film scanner.

Technicolor PostWorks New York offers a complete list of post services, including film imaging and restoration, nonlinear editorial and UHD picture finishing, 4K digital intermediate, high-volume media encoding, and sound services via nine mix stages. Prasad has delivered solutions for more than 15,000 features films across the world and has facilities, offices and associates in the US, UK, Germany, India, Japan, Middle East and Far East.
“Prasad is thrilled to establish a foothold in the East Coast to conveniently service the film and motion-image archive communities,” comments Tracy Balsz, VP at Prasad Corp.
"High-speed Scanity 4K scanning is a tremendous benefit to our clients shooting new film whose workflows demand single-touch dailies, as well as for archival projects seeking high resolution, stability and gentle film handling," adds Rob DeMartin COO/president of Technicolor PostWorks. "Having the opportunity to offer our New York clients Prasad's vast restoration capabilities — without having their archival film leaving the zip code — is also a tremendous opportunity.”
