Cospective Pty Ltd is an Australian software firm. Originally born as Rising Sun Research, a technology spin-off from the boutique visual effects company Rising Sun Pictures, the company now operates under the Cospective banner to reflect the broadening nature of the business. Cospective has customers worldwide in film, advertising, television, games and design. The privately held company was founded in April 2000 and is headquartered in Adelaide, Australia.

Products developed by Cospective include cineSpace, a film color management solution, cineSync, a tool for remote visual collaboration, and Frankie, a real-time video review platform for short form content production.[1]

Instrumental in the development of cineSync was the team of Tony Clark, Alan Rogers, Neil Wilson and Rory McGregor, who were presented with a Technical Achievement Award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) for the 2010 Scientific and Technical Achievement Awards. The Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards honor the men, women and companies whose discoveries and innovations have contributed in significant, outstanding and lasting ways to motion pictures.[2]

cineSpace was acquired by Cine-tal Systems in August 2008 and then subsequently acquired by THX Ltd in April 2011.[3] [4]
