Discreet collaborate with Kodak colour display matching

Discreet and Kodak have announced a distribution deal that will see Kodak Display Manager distributed with Discreet Systems.
Kodak’s advanced colour management system for calibration and profiling of display monitors and projectors will provides superior colour fidelity when viewing or digitally processing scanned film stocks within Discreet Systems.
Discreet and Kodak will be demonstrating the Kodak Display Manager, an advanced monitor calibration and film print look emulation system running on Discreet’s award-winning lustre digital colour grading system at the NAB at booth SL3547.
“We are delighted with the progress of our collaboration with Kodak, first announced at the International Broadcasters’ Convention in Amsterdam last September,” said Paul Lypaczewski, Discreet General Manager and Executive Vice President of Autodesk.
“Kodak’s unparalleled knowledge of film colour science puts us in a unique position to eliminate many of the inefficiencies and uncertainties of digital film production. The Kodak Display Manager is the best solution for matching a digital image to that of a projected print.”
Bob Mayson, General Manager and Vice President for Image Capture products, Entertainment Imaging at Eastman Kodak, said: “Discreet systems are ideally suited to bringing Kodak’s next-generation colour management technology to market.
“The combined value of the Discreet-Kodak solution is unbeatable and with Discreet’s unmatched 10-year experience in high-performance digital film systems we can fundamentally improve digital intermediate workflows.”
One of the toughest challenges facing film laboratories and post-production companies today is the accurate manipulation of scanned film in digital systems used for such tasks as conforming, colour grading, retouching and restoration, compositing or visual effects. With an ever-increasing amount of digital effects being used in movies today, and the growing number of films being produced as digital intermediates – i.e. entire films scanned and processed digitally at high 2K (2048x1556) or 4K (4096x 3112) resolutions – the ability to be able to easily and accurately visualise digital images is of growing importance.
The Kodak Display Manager eliminates this problem by providing a calibrated digital environment where the digital display or projection accurately simulates the look of the highest-quality projected theatrical print.
Currently in beta but expected to be on release soon, Kodak Display Manager will be available with Discreet’s lustre system on a 30-day trial license basis.
