DPS Cinema’s Enhanced Environments also allow productions to move from daylight to night environments at the touch of a button and is fully customizable.
DPS Cinema is also a principal supplier of the latest in LED lighting solutions for green screen and blue screen. Productions that have already utilized DPS Cinema’s techniques and processes include Gone Girl, Fifty Shades of Grey, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Nightcrawler, Inherent Vice and more.
In addition, DPS announces the addition of Bobby Finley III to the DPS Cinema division as VP, Cinema Technologies.
