Digital Intermediate

Making a difference in filmmaking.

The Digital Intermediate (DI) process is revolutionizing filmmaking, both artistically and financially; providing a win-win situation to producers and filmmakers alike. The DI workflow brings in both speed and versatility, while maintaining the highest resolution standards for an enhanced visual experience. Which is why Reliance Media Works is equipped with a state of the art DI facility to cater to film, TV and web related video content. Here’s what sets us apart:

+Scanning at 4K

We provide customized film scanning for varied and specific needs. Our Spirit 4K Scanner facilitates scanning at a superior speed; our Northlight2 Film Scanner is the go-to for VFX heavy outputs, along with a pin registered scanner outfitted with an 8K CCD sensor.

+Realtime Playback and Review

With our full 4K digital grading suite (equipped with 3 chip DLP Christie projectors), 5.1 surround sound audio and a relaxed atmosphere- our suite enables you to grade, playback and review any form of uncompressed digital media in real time. Our DI workflow is also capable of delivering multiple format outputs- from 4K & 2K film-out to HD & SD video to D-Cinema for digital data.

+Colour Calibration

Operating in an adequately calibrated environment is essential to the DI workflow. TrueLight from FilmLight enables accuracy and consistency of color, and can simulate multiple film stocks; video formats and looks prior to delivery.


Equipped with both tools and experience; we manage your data safely and accurately- possessing the best available Baselight stations to ensure speedy, accurate delivery.
