Brazil’s Largest Post House Installs 80 Seats of Resolve


LR-O2Blackmagic Design announced that Brazilian post house O2 Post is installing 80 DaVinci Resolve licenses and three DaVinci Resolve color grading suites, forming one of the largest Resolve workflows in the world. O2 colorists, editors, VFX artists, producers, directors and clients will be able to view and share files anywhere in the facility.

O2 Post is Brazil’s largest production and postproduction facility and is part of the larger O2 family of film, television and commercial companies. O2 Post, originally launched to serve O2 Filmes‘ subsidiaries, now handles projects for all types of Brazilian and international productions with more than 100 people on staff and 8,500 square meters of creative space located in São Paulo. With the new installation, all of the projects coming out of O2 will be graded using DaVinci Resolve.

The installation, which is ongoing, includes three DaVinci Resolve color correction suites and 77 DaVinci Resolve licenses running on Mac and Windows systems. All of these are connected via a facility-wide SAN, with unique databases set up for different projects. Up to 40 people will be able to share a single project at the same time, and because all of O2 Post’s clients are connected to the SAN, they, along with staff, will be able to open a project in Resolve, update it and then play it back on different workstations.

O2 Post general manager Paulo Barcellos has designed and managed the building of the new infrastructure. “O2 was a pioneer in shooting digital, but our post facility housed large scale solutions that were not a natural fit with digital, and this complicated the workflow,” he said. “It was a bottleneck that left very little room to expand. You could not see color grading unless you were the artist working on the project, you were in the color grading room or someone rendered out a file and sent it to you. Turning Resolve into the center of our postproduction workflow and basing everything around Macs offer us better features, collaboration and performance that is actually three times faster than our previous system.”
