Secure, calibrated, full latitude grading in 2K on the new iPad.

Seamlessly integrated with Colorfront On-Set Dailies, On-Set Color is an iPad grading app that supports communication of cinematographic intent between DoP and the dailies colorist.

Having access to the full latitude 2K 10bit logarithmic DPX images on the new iPad, with the calibration applied on the device allows for a proper grading pipeline to be implemented on the iPad.

Images are watermarked and encrypted and can be synced through secure FTP. Color grading is compatible with On-Set Dailies and can be sent back along with any text notes to the dailies facility and applied for the transfer.

Codex Digital, Colorfront to Demonstrate Complete Dailies Workflow at NAB

LONDON — 4 April 2011 — At NAB 2011, Codex Digital and Colorfront will conduct joint demonstrations of a new dailies workflow. The demonstrations will employ Codex's Transfer Station and Colorfront's On-Set Dailies, and will show the playback of ARRIRAW files from Codex's Virtual File System in real time.

“The Codex/Colorfront ARRIRAW workflow was used last November on the feature film “Styria” and we are excited to show it to a wider audience, says Codex Digital Managing Director Marc Dando. “This means that all of the technology is production-proven.”

“There is a natural fit between what Codex does and what Colorfront does”, explains Mark Jaszberenyi, “We believe that this workflow provides the most efficient way to produce movies at the highest possible quality and this will make it a compelling choice.”

The Codex Transfer Station for Mac will make the ARRIRAW files directly available to a Colorfront On-Set Dailies System, which will also have direct access to metadata via the Transfer Station, as well as audio files (from a separate source). The On-Set Dailies System will then be used for grading, sound-syncing and the creation of dailies deliverables such as Avid DnxHD, ProRes 4:4:4, H.264 etc... Mark Jaszberenyi explains, “The dailies grades are baked in to the dailies deliverables so that the creative intent is always shown, but the original files are archived without grading for later use in the final grading. The dailies grade is kept with the files as metadata so it can be used as a starting point. This maximizes creative control in an extremely efficient workflow.”
