Light Iron, a postproduction facility in Hollywood, specializes in on-site dailies, digital intermediate, archival, and data services for projects originated on file-based motion cameras. The company offers services for feature film, episodic television, and web-bound projects for both independent and major studios.
The company distinguishes itself by providing state-of-the-art file-based hardware and software solutions configured to enhance the creative process. More specifically, Light Iron delivers postproduction solutions that minimize time, maximize image fidelity, and increase filmmakers' creative control over their projects.
The primary challenge for Light Iron was to successfully color-grade a major feature film, in this case The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with the director and colorist working in separate locations. It was crucial that they have absolute confidence that both monitors would display the same exact image, because the film is so dependent on precise and nuanced colors to set its feel and mood.
The Dolby® Professional Reference Monitor helped Light Iron accomplish two major tasks on this project:

True blacks, superb dark detail, and extended dynamic range make the Dolby Professional Reference Monitor PRM-4220 the first viable CRT replacement solution for color-critical work. For the first time, users see exactly what was shot. Emulation versatility and a wide range of color gamuts, including support for the DCI P3 color space, add to its value in improving the production process.
The Dolby Professional Reference Monitor also supports all HD formats over HD-SDI, along with SD and 2K content. Color accuracy exceeds the published and widely recognized Grade 1 guidelines.
