Company 3 Installs Eight DaVinci Resolve Systems in LA and NY Offices

Milpitas, CA – December 15, 2010 - Blackmagic Design today announced that Company 3, one of the US’s premiere post production facilities for features, commercials, TV and music videos, has purchased and installed eight additional Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolves. The high-powered 4 GPU Resolve 7.0 for Linux non-linear colour correction systems will be installed in the company’s Santa Monica and New York locations, and will be used for traditional and 3D colour grading with the firm’s film, television and commercials.

Company 3 is known as one of the world’s top post production facilities for colour grading, and DaVinci Resolve has been an integral part of the company’s success. Company 3 has used DaVinci Resolve in the grading of recent films such as Alice In Wonderland, Robin Hood and The Hurt Locker, as well as with international brands such as Microsoft’s Halo game, BMW and Audi.

As part of the new purchase, Company 3 will be adding six, high-powered 4 GPU DaVinci Resolves at their Santa Monica facility and two 4 GPU systems at their brand new New York location in the heart of Chelsea. The new DaVinci Resolve units join Company 3’s set of existing DaVinci systems, including a number of previous DaVinci Resolve versions and DaVinci 2K systems in both the LA and NYC offices.

“The new Resolve helps Company 3 stay ahead of the competition and gives our artists access to the best tool available. It brings Company 3 all the power and real-time colour grading features we have come to rely on, as well as exciting additions such as new 3D features, support for RED workflows and a new user interface. Both our artists and our clients are very excited about the purchase,” said Company 3's co-founder and principal colourist, Stefan Sonnenfeld.

About DaVinci Resolve

Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve is the world’s highest performance colour correction solution for Mac OS X and Linux computers. DaVinci Resolve on Linux supports more real time colour correction than any other system because it’s not limited by the performance of the computer it’s running on. DaVinci Resolve on Linux eliminates this performance barrier because it’s based on a cluster of computers with high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time. DaVinci Resolve has the power of a true real time performance solution so handles complex colour grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, Power Windows™, multi point tracking, blurs, and more. The new Mac OS X version provides strong performance in a low cost solution. Customers can then easily upgrade from Mac to Linux for supercomputer power to handle 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from RED raw R3D files can be handled with ease.
