We have recently improved our resolution indipendent Baselight digital color corrector system, as several new versions were created and manufactured during the last four years that have passed since our last improvement in 2003. Besides the Baselight 1., we installed a new Baselight 4. system, which is more effective in speed and capacity than its predecessor. It also offers the possibility for a real-time 4k coloring with projector and of course it is resolution independent. We will keep the Baselight 1. as well, in order to be able to adapt ourselves better this way to the productional demands.

We are continuously expanding and improving our technical background and equipments in accordance with the development strategy of the lab. As a result of our current, 1.6 million Euro worth investment, we are able to offer the full scale of laboratory services to even the huge international productions with the highest demands, from the shoting till the release prints including even the most advanced technology requiring broadcast materials.
