Siren Digital a film TV and new media production group in Hollywood has chosen a Digital Vision’s Nucoda color grading system with DVO toolset and Precision control panel for their digital intermediates and technological operations. Continuing a long-standing collaborative relationship the team at Siren has worked with Digital Vision over many years beginning with installations of Nucoda in Santa Monica and extending overseas to large-scale facility build-outs in Korea and China. Over the course of many projects the companies have found new ways to produce and manage the creation and delivery of entertainment content. Kyle Jackson co-founder of Siren Digital said “We have a significant comfort level and familiarity with Digital Vision’s outstanding toolset support and R&D group built upon years of experience at another facility we designed and operated in Los Angeles and global projects we’ve managed. Over the past five years Digital Vision has been the backbone of many of our endeavors. Their software proves time and again to be able to handle the real-world challenges of changing post production workflows.” Digital Vision’s Nucoda grading and mastering systems support ACES all the major digital camera formats on the market and provides robust features for creative flexibility. The Precision panel adds a high level of control for colorists with its unique industry-leading combination of tactile controls and integrated touch-sensitive panels.

We believe that Digital Vision is with us today and for the long run.” Jackson added “Working with Digital Vision has always been one of the most rewarding technological collaborations we have ever engaged in. Their willingness to work closely with us to devise solutions is crucial. They understand real-world demands as well as creative needs.
