Technicolor launches MasterVUE

Suite enables filmmakers to accelerate prod'n

Technicolor announced Wednesday the launch of its MasterVUE services suite which is designed to give filmmakers the ability to accelerate their production schedule by fundamentally creating a 24-hour work day.

The suite is made up of four areas that give filmmakers cost-effective, secure file-based distribution methods. When used in conjunction with one another, filmmakers can set up workflows which can function on a global schedule, with multiple sites of production happening in different time zones.

The four services are an on-set color primary grading toolset that allows the DP to correct for lighting subtleties, an on-location dailies and editorial preparation service that creates backup files and viewing copies, a sharing system that synchronizes production across time zones, and a remote color secondary grading toolset that provides DPs and helmers with a cohesive workflow.

Technicolor, a long-time leader in the field of color science, designed the suite to address issues at play for filmmakers like the rapid transition from analog to digital workflows and the need to distribute content in a variety of markets and formats with the increased pressure of shrinking release windows. Additionally, security features in the suite are designed to anticipate the shift to cloud-based infrastructures.
