Globalstor and PNY to Sponsor SpeedGrade Seminars

Cinematographers and Colorists to Learn About Digital Color Grading in Hands-On Training Sessions

CHATSWORTH, CA September 26, 2005:

Globalstor Data Corporation, an OEM with a full spectrum of hardware and software support offering a broad range of broadcast and video professional solutions, announced today their co-sponsorship with PNY Technologies of the first SpeedGrade Seminars scheduled for November 5, 2005 and presented by IRIDAS and Rising Sun Research. These seminars, lead by industry expert Jerome Sabourin, will provide a hands-on learning experience for cinematographers, colorists, VFX supervisors, and others who want to know more about the capabilities of digital color grading and the emerging field of DI work.

The SpeedGrade Seminars will include two sessions: the morning program, working with SpeedGrade OnSet, will address the emerging field of look management. The afternoon session will explore SpeedGrade DI, IRIDAS’ color-grading and film finishing application. Both sessions will also address calibration with Rising Sun Research’s cineSpace tools.

“With the almost daily advancements in DI technology, seminars such as this one are an integral part of helping filmmakers interact with the tools and experience first hand what they are capable of creating,’” said Scott Leif, President of Globalstor Data. “For us, it’s a great opportunity to be a part of the team that is bringing these solutions and the experience of Jerome Sabourin together in one place.”

Lead presenter, Jerome Sabourin is a cinematographer and colorist based in Montreal and is widely acknowledged as a leading expert in new filmmaking technologies. He is currently in his second season as director or photography and senior colorist on two of the top three prime-time TV dramas in Quebec: Minuit, le Soir, and Le Negotiatuer.

The SpeedGrade Seminars are being presented by IRIDAS and Rising Sun Research and sponsored by PNY/NVIDIA and Globalstor. They will take place on Saturday, November 5, 2005 at Dalsa Digital Cinema, 6160 Variel Ave. in Woodland Hills, CA. For more information, call (toll-free) 1-866-825-7999, or visit www.IRIDAS.com
