Datalab, llc offers a holistic approach to the process. A complete system for managing all data and metadata that offers a more reliable and controllable environment for the creative process of making a movie.
The system is greater than the sum of it's parts.
The editorial environment has always managed large amounts of data (picture, sound, and metadata in its various forms.) By necessity, this has historically been done by using proxies and by managing and coordinating the efforts of outside vendors.
Datalab, llc consolidates this data flow within the editorial process again.
Individual implementation can vary, but the concept stays the same.
For example, Datalab, llc handled the digital negative of Zodiac by using dpx files. It is entirely possible to replace this file format with OpenEXR if a production desires. Likewise Avid or Final Cut Pro, HD, 2K or 4K.
Datalab, llc modules' are adaptable, but the general workflow and system tools remain the same.
