A new era of cinematic creativity has begun with the opening of the first Dolby Vision HDR grading and projection room for cinema in France
PARIS, October 12, 2023 - Dolby, a leader in immersive entertainment experiences, today announced its innovative collaboration with Hiventy, part of TransPerfect Media, a leading provider of localization, content, restoration and post-production services for the film, audiovisual, and multimedia industries.
This agreement marks an important moment in the French film and audiovisual industry, with the inauguration of the very first Dolby Vision® HDR grading and projection room for cinema in the country, and the only commercial one in continental Europe.
Since the integration of Hiventy in October 2022, TransPerfect Media has established itself as a leading player in the film and audiovisual industry in Europe, particularly in France, with 8 sites in Île-de-France and 3 in the regions. This merger is the catalyst for a bold and innovative transformation of the European film industry.
True to its commitment to innovation and quality, TransPerfect Media has decided to usher in a new creative era in collaboration with Dolby. One of the most exciting aspects of this collaboration is the opening of a Dolby Vision HDR grading room and Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos® screening room for cinema, in September in Boulogne Billancourt, near Paris.
This bold initiative reflects TransPerfect Media's commitment to providing creative professionals with the most advanced and sophisticated tools available, while remaining true to their artistic vision. Thanks to this cutting-edge facility, professionals in the film industry will benefit from an exceptional creative environment in which to sublimate their works and release them in premium Dolby Cinemas. There are 11 Dolby Cinemas in France and around thirty in Europe.
Why Dolby Vision?
Dolby Vision brings characters to life with darker darks, brighter brights, and a remarkable color range you can’t get anywhere else. This technology allows directors and colorists to express their artistic vision with unrivalled precision and depth. As a result, viewers are immersed in the heart of the story, captivated by details and nuances you simply can’t see with a standard picture.
Anais Libolt, Director of Audiovisual Services and Content at Dolby, explains: "We are delighted to see TransPerfect open this first Dolby Vision HDR cinema color-grading room. We hope that many French and European creators will take advantage of these tools to bring their images to life according to their aesthetic aspirations, supported by Hiventy's expertise. The venue will also enable professionals to view their work in the best possible visual and sound conditions."
