Vision Globale Joins the KODAK Imagecare Program

May 8, 2012: Canada’s Vision Globale is the newest member of the KODAK IMAGECARE Program, a prestigious quality program for motion picture film processing laboratories. Vision Globale, located in downtown Montreal, is the first Canadian lab to gain accreditation into the KODAK IMAGECARE Program, a truly global initiative, with member labs in 23 countries worldwide.

The KODAK IMAGECARE Program includes rigorous quality standards that assure member labs adhere to established practices with full documentation of procedures and calibration. Kodak works very closely with laboratory personnel to assure these standards are met and maintained.

In 2001, Vision Globale opened a small, independent boutique film laboratory to expand their range of services to the entertainment industry. They have now received KODAK IMAGECARE Program accreditation in Phase I, Camera Negative Processing operations, indicating to filmmakers that critical film handling techniques and quality processing standards are being maintained by the facility.

“Over the years, Kodak has been a great partner in the ongoing task of achieving consistency,” says Paul Dion, Director of Operations at the lab. “The Kodak Imagecare Program accreditation gives us credibility and instant recognition of our continuous commitment to the highest quality standards and assurance that all assets entrusted to us will be handled with the highest level of expertise. Throughout the process and right up to the final audit, we had the continuous support of Kodak. Our commitment to the highest-quality services has rewarded us with repeat business from enthusiastic filmmakers who count on us to bring their wildest projects to life. In a sense, the existence of a strong infrastructure is necessary to promote film as a superior medium.”

“We are delighted and proud to welcome Vision Globale as the first Canadian laboratory into the Program,” says Diane Carroll-Yacoby, worldwide manager of the KODAK IMAGECARE Program. “They are committed to excellence and delivering the best that film can offer a customer.”
