Attendees will have the opportunity to move around a sound stage with live sets that will demonstrate the contrast between SDR and HDR Shooting, Post-Production, Colorization and other pipeline processes. The demonstrations will be open throughout the day for guests to explore.
Blackmagic Design will be showcasing it’s latest URSA Mini Pro 4.6K camera for HDR production, along with DaVinci Resolve Studio for editing, grading, and finishing HDR content. You’ll be able to get hands on shooting on set with the URSA Mini Pro alongside DP and Cinematographer Lukas Colombo who has shot and finished several HDR projects with the camera. You’ll also see DaVinci Resolve in action and have an opportunity to speak with an HDR colorist and product specialist about DaVinci Resolve, so you can learn how it fits into your HDR and SDR workflows.
Cinionic will be demonstrating the prototype of a new high contrast HDR laser projector with “light steering” technology that effectively throws more light at parts of the image that require high brightness, but not the darker areas. This reduces the use of heat — and therefore cost — because you don’t need as much light. Because light is not wasted, this opens up the promise of HDR for the masses at a ‘normal’ price point in the future.
Sony has always led the way in 4K/HDR for scripted and live production. At the HDR Summit, Sony will present a live, visual experience demonstrating the true power of HDR. This unique presentation will be displayed on the industry-standard BVM-X300 monitors. In addition, Sony will demonstrate end-to-end production workflows with the VENICE Full-Frame Cinema Camera and the latest post tools from FilmLight.
Dolby will have a 30 minute in-depth overview of the full Dolby Vision HDR Color Grading tools and workflow with colorist Greg Hamlin ( HDR Vision grades for Mad Max Fury Road, Platoon, Tarzan, Logan Lucky, Argo) and Dolby Representatives Tom Graham & Aby Matthew. Learn how you can create the HDR and Wide Color Gamut master image, as well as the Dolby Vision, HDR 10 and Rec 709 SDR deliverables.
ARRI will show the difference between SDR and HDR in a controlled environment, demonstrate HDR monitoring on set in conjunction with in-camera LUT support for HDR. The experience will be very educational and exhibit practical examples of strobing/stutter effect when moving the camera and other “gotcha” situations experienced when shooting HDR.
