The Los Angeles-based company’s innovative 3cP on-set color correction system helps cinematographers arrive at their desired look during a telecine and DI session by relying on a system of patented color charts and the proprietary software that functions as a common language between DP’s, DIT’s and telecine/DI colorists.
