Hi,

I am getting my HD telecine back on D5-HD and will need to be able to bring it into my premiere pro 2.0 system for final color correction and mastering. I need a recomendation of a good house that can capture my D5 and put it on hard drive for me. There are no D5 decks in the whole state of Alaska, so I need to go elsewhere.

The lab is in NY, so that is prefered, but I expect lots of shipping. I am used to working with that in Alaska, so if I need to go to a post house in LA or elsewhere thats fine (no farther than canada. new zeland is a bit too far)

I found premiere pro can handle conforming an 1080 uncompressed 10 bit file, so I would like to keep it in that if possible. Extra points for a post house that can later take my color corrected/conformed uncompressed 10 bit file and put that on a HDCAM, HDCAM-SR and/or DVCPRO-HD for festival playout (I assume any house that can handle uncompressed capture of D5 probably has one or all those decks availible for them)

I need recomendations (and preferably contact personel) so I can verify they can provide me with a file my system can read. Thanks.

I've always been a big cheerleader for Postworks. They've always been wonderful to work with.

Hahaha. funny you should mention them...thats my lab! I suppose I should keep things in one house to simplify things. I just wasn't sure if they could do that sort of work, I have so far only spoken to their lab and telecine house. I will talk to Jerimiah about that when the time comes. Still waiting on the SD tape for the offline, just trying to stay a bit ahead of the curve. Thanks

Yeah, the lab is fantastic. Rick and Dom are great guys.

They're a pretty big outfit. They have a few offices around the city. They have four or five floors at 100 Sixth Ave. They have a nice DI suite and can handle most anything you throw at them.

In their Moving Images identity they've done the same thing for me, D5HD > hard drive.

I'm sure Postworks can do what you ask, talk to Dom or Rick as Nathan suggests.
