French film laboratory and post production house, Éclair Group, has invested in a Quantel Pablo Rio to boost its finishing capabilities. Each year, Éclair Group post-produces more than 50 feature length films, including Le Passé, La fleur de l’âge and Jappeloup, 100 shorts, 80 hours of television fiction, 25 hours of documentaries and over 100 commercials and trailers.
Éclair Group was created in 1907 as a film laboratory and movie camera manufacturer, later moving into the post-production of television commercials in the 1980s. In 2000, Éclair Group purchased one of Europe’s first 2K color-correction suites to become one of the pioneers of digital post-production for feature-length films.
