Coinciding with Apple’s launch of the latest Mac Pro workstation, dailies and transcoding developer Colorfront is launching a new, annual rental model for Colorfront Express Dailies that reduces the cost of operating the software.
Launching in Q1 2020, Colorfront’s subscription service enables users to rent Express Dailies 2020 for an annual fee of $5,000 USD, including maintenance support, updates and upgrades. Additionally, the availability of Apple’s brand-new Pro Display XDR, designed for use with the new Mac Pro, makes on-set HDR monitoring, enabled by Colorfront systems, a more financially viable proposition.
Express Dailies 2020 supports 6K HDR/SDR workflow along with the latest camera and editorial formats including Apple ProRes and Apple ProRes RAW, ARRI MXF-wrapped ProRes, ARRI Alexa LF and Alexa Mini LF ARRIRAW, Sony Venice 5.0, Blackmagic RAW 1.5, and Codex HDE (High Density Encoding).
Express Dailies 2020 is optimised for speed of 6K HDR/SDR dailies processing on the new Mac Pro running MacOS Catalina, using the performance of the Mac Pro’s Intel Xeon 28 core CPU processor and multi-GPU rendering.
“Colorfront Express Dailies 2020 rental option delivers great value for money,” said Aron Jaszberenyi, managing director of Colorfront. “When combined with the new Apple Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, Express Dailies 2020 gives very powerful new options for filmmakers wanting to take full advantage of 6K HDR/SDR workflows and HDR on-set.”
