Visual Data, a California based provider of content preparation services for OTT and streaming platforms such as Netflix and Amazon primarily, has enhanced its Color Correction and QC Workflow with Dolby Atmos and technology from Leader.
The firm pointed out that since the advent of 4K, the number of video signal formats feeding into color correction has grown exponentially. This is one reason the LV7600 scope from Leader has been adopted as an integral part of its our main color correction room. It adds 4K support and verifies the type of signal coming into the room.
Then by the time the company developed its new Dolby Atmos and 4K QC suite, it realized it needed the same premium functionality and workflow already incorporated in the main room. The company added another LV7600 to this room and enhanced the suite with Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 twelve-channel audio, so that it could take Atmos-encoded tracks and decode them for QC to make sure all the sound lines up.
The company wanted to create a premium space for client supervision and for colorists to work in that enhanced the quality and helped increase efficiency. Dolby Atmos twelve-channel audio provides optimal monitoring while the Leader scope supports multiple color spaces and allows switching between HD and 4K at the click of a button. The firm’s QC team also relies on the Leader scope for audio metering, channel mapping, and some audio level monitoring.
