LA COLORIST MEETUP #12
DOLBY VISION SPECIAL
As the version 4.0 of Dolby Vision is finally getting its official release, we thought it would be appropriate to find out more about it. We are honored to welcome to meetup, Dolby Laboratory’s Master Colorist, Greg Hamlin. Greg did Dolby Vision on a myriad of amazing projects but most importantly he did Mad Max ‘Fury Road’. This movie is firmly on my list of ‘Must Be Seen HDR Grades’.
One LA company that does not get enough credit for its Dolby Vision mastering tools is MTI’s Cortex. While Colorfront’s Encoder seems to be the most popular tool out there ( Bill Feightner, company’s color scientist and CTO was our guest back in April ), Cortex has done a very interesting approach to the task of Dolby Vision mastering. Fresh from IBC in Amsterdam, we are bringing the company’s CEO, Larry Chernoff, to take us into philosophy and practicality behind their approach.
