ONSIGHT leaves Berners Street after 20 years

ONSIGHT is moving from its Berners Street home of 20 years to new premises in central London.

 

The new post-production facility in WC2 (Covent Garden) will feature 4K and 3D projection suites equipped with Mistika finishing systems.

 

The 4K projection room is being built around a Barco DP 4K projector.

 

ONSIGHT chief executive Simon Craddock said that although the new building is similar in size to the firm’s Berners Street site, it is “much more facility-like”.

 

He said: “We are rightly viewed as technical solutions experts but we are looking at taking on more creative talent and building that side of our reputation.”

 

Craddock said ONSIGHT is looking to hire additional colourists to support its push for more higher-end fi nishing work.

 

ONSIGHT’s Shepperton base, which houses its camera department, is unaffected by the move.

 

Recent ONSIGHT 4K projects include David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D for Sky.
