twofour54 has upgraded its post production suites to enhance the experience for filmmakers and producers.

New facilities include an 18-seat viewing room with 4K Christie cinema projector and surround sound, and numerous hardware and software upgrades across the organisation’s post production studios.

The facilities now offer multi-purpose suites with editing, audio and the latest colour grading equipment.

The Post production facilities offer 15 HD server-based, multi-use post-production suites and the region's only Baselight and Davinci colour grading facility which allows producers to choose the best colour grading solution for their project. Baselight is fast, creative and reliable, allowing the colourist to efficiently achieve the best desired result.

Paul Baker, executive director, twofour54 TV and film production services, said: “twofour54 Post Production gives filmmakers and editors a ‘home away from home’ while they are working through their last stages of a project. We ensured that our facilities offer the best standard of equipment and expertise, along with an environment conducive to creativity and collaboration.

“Offering an unmatched post production experience further strengthens the ecosystem we are building in Abu Dhabi as we work towards being the commercial hub of content creation for the region.”

twofour54 won the Best Editing Award at the Digital Studio Awards 2015 for the editing of Emirati film From A to B.
