Technicolor accelerates content production compliant with UHD Alliance specifications

MUMBAI: Technicolor is accelerating content production that is compliant with the Ultra HD displays and content specifications after the UHD Alliance’s released specifications for the same.

Technicolor is a founding member of the UHD Alliance and has been a vocal supporter of an open-standard for next-generation video, which will allow consumers to buy devices and content with confidence.

Technicolor has worked with its global teams and content owners over the last year to develop a new 4K HDR workflow for new titles, a cost-effective solution to remaster existing libraries, and the infrastructure to replicate the first Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc – all of which meet the new UHD Alliance specifications.

Content creators working on new titles can utilise Technicolor’s global team of colourists and colour scientists to natively grade content in HDR. Technicolor has already graded several films to the UHD Alliance’s HDR specifications for Twentieth Century Fox including Spy and Fantastic Four. Technicolor has also worked with Amazon - the first video service to offer HDR - to grade its Amazon Original Series including Bosch, Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks in HDR quality.

Those looking for an opportunity to unlock new value in the millions of hours of existing library content in a new, higher-quality format can remaster their libraries with Technicolor’s remastering services. Technicolor utilises its unique Intelligent Tone Management plugin for major colour grading systems, which dramatically reduces the time to create HDR content from archives of video content.

Technicolor’s Home Entertainment Services team also announced it is fully certified by the Blu-ray Disc Association to create 4K HDR Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs. They are preparing to ship launch titles in the first quarter of 2016, timed with the release of new disc players.

“After a year of dedicated work to define what next-generation video entertainment will look like, Technicolor welcomes the completion of the UHD Alliance specifications which will allow content owners to create next-generation content with confidence that it will look great on all next-generation displays. With cross-ecosystem expertise, and a fundamental understanding of storytelling, Technicolor’s well-tested HDR pipeline maintains the integrity of creative intent from set to screens.  We look forward to helping our partners develop new libraries of compelling content,” said Technicolor vice president of partner relationships and business development Mark Turner.
