Reliance MediaWorks expands to Japan via Imagica

MUMBAI: Reliance MediaWorks has expanded its post production business, signing a pact with Japan’s largest firm in this segment, Imagica Corp.

As part of the alliance, the companies would provide facilities like film restoration, image processing and enhancement and HD conversion services to Japanese broadcasters and studios.

Imagica Corp offers a range of services such as film processing and printing, inter-media transfer, digital and optical composite, VFX, CGI, editing and sound services, DVD authoring and duplication and image restoration.

Says Reliance MediaWorks CEO Anil Arjun, “By combining Imagica’s local leadership, know-how and expertise with our experience and versatile technology we are geared to provide next generation services to the Japanese film makers and broadcasters. Also, Japanese movies have always been a true embodiment of their rich imperial culture and by offering restoration services in Japan we are honored to have the opportunity to revive some of these classic movies.”

The Japanese outfit would work closely with Reliance MediaWork’s LA-based subsidiary Lowry Digital, Hollywood’s leading film restoration facility that has handled the digital restoration of picture elements for Akira Kurosawa’s 1950 Academy Award winning masterpiece Rashomon that first brought Japanese cinema to prominence in the West.

Lowry Digital has handled projects for leading studios like Walt Disney, Paramount Pictures, MGM and 20th Century Fox and entertainment leaders like George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and James Cameron and has handled the restoration of footage sent back to Earth from Apollo 11, for NASA.

Reliance MediaWorks currently has a dominant and comprehensive presence in film services like motion picture processing and DI; visual effects; film restoration and image enhancement; 2D to 3D conversion; digital mastering: studios and equipment rentals.
