“It is an exciting moment. With the addition of Gary to our team, Colourlab Ai has entered a new phase of its life cycle. We are transforming from an innovation boutique to a global player in the area of Ai for post production. In the next stage of our development, our innovative approach to color and image processing will become accessible to all creatives regardless of what hardware platform they choose: Mac, PC, cloud or even mobile phones. Version 3 of Colourlab Ai will make Ai for Color accessible to more people than ever before,” said Dado Valentic, Founder/CEO, Color Intelligence.
