NEWBURY — Roundabout, the Burbank-CA based post production facility that specialises in audio, syndication, closed captioning, restoration, and feature film DI, has purchased a Rio 4K online editing, colour and finishing tool from SAM for editorial and restoration work on multiple films.
Craig Price, Senior DI Editor at Roundabout, explained that the decision to purchase Rio came easily, especially given the company’s recent involvement with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and his experience with Quantel products. “I’ve been doing a lot of 4K work for AMPAS, which now handles a lot of restoration of old features in 4K. Moreover, I’ve been a Quantel user for 20 years and have seen their technology evolve over time. With Rio, we get really sophisticated features that make our jobs a lot easier. For example, Rio’s toolset has an intuitive layout so you don’t have to think about it, which saves us a lot of time.”
