At this year’s HPA Tech Retreat iZone booth #501, 6P Color Inc. will demonstrate the latest advancements in color processing and display technology. For the first time, visitors can experience 6P Color’s Full Color Range (FCR) system designed to offer an unprecedented viewing experience by providing nearly full spectrum colour to displays including monitors, LED walls, and digital projectors.
FCR is an end-to-end colour system starting with captured or generated scene data from a camera or CG render. The system processes and transports all captured or created colours to displays using established tools, formats, and standards. Much of the colour information processed and transported by the FCR system is beyond the boundaries of traditional RGB colour gamuts. To show these colours, displays are being exhibited with primaries beyond RGB. The result is an ultra-wide colour gamut offering a new frontier of aesthetic and creative possibility, with applications spanning filmmaking, live production, gaming, and medical imaging.
While standard RGB P3 displays reproduce just 45 percent of visible colours, 6P Color’s 81” demonstration display shows over 75 percent. 6P invites HPA’s discerning attendees to ask questions and offer feedback on these innovations. Attendees will experience content captured by standard cameras and processed via the proprietary FCR Yxy pipeline with the application of an additional Cyan primary. Other colour primaries are in lab development.
FCR is already at work. It is currently being used by select colourists in Hollywood with a full creative DaVinci Resolve System employing today’s most accepted workflow and standards. According to top colourist, Cullen Kelly, “FCR is a game-changer for filmmakers. It provides the ability to reproduce more original scene colours than previously possible, while at the same time offering wider creative possibility in the colour grade. Adoption of this system is inevitable: the only question is how well creatives will utilise this exciting new tool.”
Following HPA, a series of screenings, Enabling Digital Color Without Limits will demonstrate this new advance. Contact Rachel Jobin at Rachel@6PColor.com for information about demos, and other details. www.6pcolor.com
