Point.360 is a full-service entertainment media company offering episodic and feature picture finishing, content management, audio, localization, quality control, film scanning & restoration and media storage services. For almost 30 years, Point.360 has been at the forefront of technology, utilizing the latest methods in file-based workflows, Dolby Vision and HDR-10 color-correction, Dolby Atmos sound, Streambox remote viewing and much more. But don’t worry, we still have a one-inch machine lying around if you want to go back to the basics.
We can color, edit, create visual effects, design motion graphics, mix, QC and deliver your productions in every configuration possible. If you need it in Spanish, French or Klingon, we can do that too. And our audio department has a complete Foley stage if you feel like mimicking footsteps in the snow or the lasers of a Martian armada. Our media storage facility is one of the largest in the country, with state-of- the-art security and online inventory viewing. Hopefully that sort of thing excites you as much as it does us. Got some old 35mm prints in a salt mine that need some love in the time of digital? Yep, we can handle that too.
Find us in two convenient locations. Our Burbank building is a stone’s throw away from some of our favorite institutions: the Magnolia Park shopping district, Atomic Records, the Chandler Bike Path, and of course, Porto’s Bakery and Café. Our Los Angeles location is in the heart of northeast LA, near the trendy shops of Atwater Village, buzzy York Avenue and the newly restored Rio de Los Angeles State Park. We could go on, but we like to keep our content paragraphs short.

Point.360 is proud to support films made by people with disabilities, about people with disabilities, and for people with disabilities. We believe that entertainment should be accessible to everyone and are committed to providing the highest quality CLOSED CAPTIONING for the deaf & hard-of-hearing and AUDIO DESCRIPTION for the blind and low-sighted communities.
For more than 25 years Point.360 has been providing closed captioning services for just about every major network and studio in Los Angeles. Whether its television, film, or streaming Point.360 produces thousands of hours of captioning at competitive and lighting-fast turnrounds, while never losing sight of why we do what we do, and the community we are serving. With 100% human input and review, the Point.360 team ensures all caption files adhere to the strict FCC guidelines for dialogue accuracy and timing. But at Point.360, we also take great care with the areas that are not regulated; the sound effects and descriptors, the ambient noises, and subtle changes in music. We know for the millions of deaf & hard-of-hearing folks watching, these elements can be as important as the words themselves. Our team makes sure they can enjoy the same rich audible experience that the filmmakers intended.
Point.360’s in-house Audio Description team has over a decade of experience and has created Description for companies such as Marvel, Disney, and Hulu. With training from some of the industry’s top advocates, including Dr. Joel Snyder (The Visual Made Verbal), and with guidance from organizations such as The American Council for the Blind, Point.360 produces the highest-quality description available today. From our select pool of writers, to the team of voice-over talent brought in to record in our Burbank studios, to the engineers, and directors, and mixers… you can count on Point.360 to pay attention to every minute detail in the process. So whether you need your AD mixed with the original audio for broadcast/streaming, or you require a separate audio file for theatrical exhibition or film festivals, Point.360 has you covered and will make sure your project is accessible to the more than 25 million blind and low-vision people living in the US today.

Point.360’s content management team believes that value comes from specialized workflows, a flexible staff, and innovative technology, which is why we’re able to service digital assets for all major platforms. Our file management systems are built to store and track files for as long as you need them. If you’ve lost your keys or your wallet, you may be on your own, but if you’re trying to find an entire season worth of audio stems for your show, we’ve got you covered.
Whether you are mastering content for international distribution, localizing files for world-wide delivery, or embarking on a major archive initiative, our content management team will elevate your potential in the global marketplace.
Point.360 specializes in international M&E – we do thousands of them every year. In fact, as you’re reading this, we probably just finished another one! To make this all possible, we’ve dedicated an entire floor of our Burbank location to our audio department.
We now have a brand-new 7.1.4 Immersive Dolby Atmos Mix Suite!
In addition, we have two ADR rooms, three Dolby 5.1 edit suites and five Dolby 5.1 mixing suites. All of these are located in the same building as our creative services department making us a post-production one-stop shop.
Point.360 offers high resolution film scanning up to and including 4k resolution. Utilizing pin registered technology will result in your scans to be as steady as the day the film was shot. In conjunction with our pin registration, we also offer proprietary grain/noise management tools as well as a complete, resolution-independent complement of restoration tools. This combination of tools allows us to give new life in older titles and hide anomalies that were not removable before, and even the most nitpicky film buffs will be impressed by the visual fidelity of your classics.
As digital platforms continue to dominate the marketplace, keeping the titles in your library in good condition has never been more important. We’ll help ensure that your most important titles maintain the highest level of quality and don’t fall behind the times.
Just because we’re living in the age of digital files doesn’t mean that physical media can be ignored. Built in the classic days of tape, our Media Center was engineered with the needs of your most delicate material in mind. Our precisely calibrated climate control and fire safety systems will protect your material from the elements, while our proprietary security process keeps it safe from prying eyes and sticky fingers. Cinephiles are still mourning the classics that have been lost to subpar preservation conditions, and we want to make sure your material doesn’t join the list.
The storage and retrieval of your material is made simple thanks to our comprehensive asset tracking. Material deposited at any Point.360 facility is barcoded and entered into the Point.360 management system. As soon as you need it, the material can be easily made available and transported to the Point.360 location of your choice via our fleet of secured vehicles.
