Digitising services

Created in 2013, our digital laboratory provides the NFA with most post-production services that were previously outsourced. The department is equipped with the necessary technology for format conversions and other modifications of audio-visual materials and the production of final masters in an appropriate resolution, frame rate and colour standard. A digital projection room is used to check the quality of the outputs. The preparation of orders and their progress is supervised by a digital lab technician whom you can consult about appropriate formats and about designing major project workflows.
