The Freakworks Datalab acts as a

data management bureau

for all your Digital Film needs.

This starts with the design and implementation based on your data-acquisition formats, 2D or 3D. These formats and cameras include R3D, Canon 5D/7D, P2, RAW, Cineform, XDCAM, XDCAM-EX, ARRIRAW Silicon Imaging, Phantom and many many more.

The Datalab was originally conceived in 2007, when Freakworks had to deal with the first R3D project shot in Scotland. Therefore as one of the very first facilities in the UK to deal with R3D RAW, new workflow solutions had to be developed. Our objective is to make the editing process as seamless and fast as possible and to do any preparation and transcoding work from tapeless productions, prior to the Post Production. This can be in conjunction with our Stereoscopic department in completing Stereoscopic prepping passes prior to S3D post. We also have the facility to provide On-Set Media Workflow Supervision. We offer assistance and production management across all stages of your production pipeline, this can include digital dailies, workflow consultancy, rushes for editors and a full range of digital transcoding for commercials, features films and broadcast.

Similar to a Film Lab, you can provide us with your rushes that we will process and transcode ready for your Post Production.
