Radiant Images is an award-winning digital cinema innovator and rental house providing creative solutions in 2D, 3D, VR and augmented reality, leading-edge cameras and equipment, and unrivaled client support, to the motion picture industry worldwide.
Known as a hub of digital cinema innovation, Radiant’s focus on future technologies and pushing the boundaries of filmmaking sets the company apart from any other rental house. The company relies on expert technicians – including award-winning R&D – skilled rental agents, and an array of on-site capabilities to enable creative minds to achieve their vision without compromise.
At Radiant Images, production companies and filmmakers have access to an in-house design and fabrication team able to quickly provide tailor-made solutions to fit client needs, saving time and money. In addition, an in-house post supervisor is available to assist clients with technical workflows and best practices in virtual and augmented reality as well as 2D productions. Clients also can utilize a high-precision lens and sensor diagnostics room for convenient on-site testing.
Radiant’s VR division also is recognized as an industry leader in testing and developing virtual reality and augmented reality technology. Radiant is the creator of the first-of-its-kind Mobius POV helmet rig and the Headcase Codex 360 rig, plus numerous advances in VR mobility and VR power solutions. The company also is partnered with VRLIVE (www.VRLIVE.com), a virtual reality live-streaming network that delivers high-quality 360-degree content to any mobile device anywhere.
In late 2015, Radiant Images tripled in size to a new, 28-000-square-foot facility custom built with client comfort and convenience in mind. The location at 2702 Media Center Drive in Northeast LA features an expansive prep area for gear setup with an adjacent, full client kitchen/lounge with all the amenities; ample parking; easy freeway access and a dedicated VR wing.
Founded by Michael Mansouri and Gianna Wolfe in 2005, Radiant Images was an early adopter of digital technology as production transitioned from film to digital. The company is built on a single-minded focus of finding ways to simplify complicated filmmaking technology and equipment. From the beginning, Radiant differentiated itself by working with productions to develop solutions rather than just renting out a camera package, becoming in essence the technology arm of production companies. That mindset has sparked a spirit of innovation and collaboration unmatched in the industry.
Radiant is well known for its work with small action cameras and lightweight rigs. For acclaimed Director Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours, technicians built custom rigs that utilized the SI-2K digital camera to enable key creative shots in the Academy Award-nominated film. For David Ayer’s End of Watch, Radiant went a step further, conceiving and developing a mini camera to capture the POV look of the film.
Radiant also is the creator of the Novo, the palm-sized, cinema-quality action camera that won a MARIO Award for innovation. The Novo has been used in a number of feature films, including Transformers 4, Ten, Fast & Furious 7 and In the Heart of the Sea as well as NBC’s Revolution.
Boasting a deep and varied rental inventory, Radiant offers creative, flexible and affordable solutions for any sized project. The company is able to collaborate with 2D, 3D and VR productions from concept to pre-production to capture to post and distribution.
Radiant has a dedicated VR wing inside its facility at 2702 Media Center Drive in northeast Los Angeles. For more information about Radiant Images, visit online at www.radiantimages.com. Find Radiant Images on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
