EclairColor is a revolutionary
digital color solution that combines postproduction processes (color grading
and color science) and the optimization of select projection system
technologies already available from CinemaNext.
"We are particularly thrilled to be presenting
our EclairColor technology for the very first time in France at the 71st annual
FNCF convention in Deauville," said CinemaNext France Director Maxime
Rigaud. "The benefits for audiences as well as movie exhibitors include
significantly enhanced image quality and the sense of heightened details, better
color fidelity, more brightness, greater contrast and a larger depth of field."
"With EclairColor, cinema exhibitors will be able
to considerably improve the quality of the image projection in their cinemas. It
is a marvelous opportunity," added Olivier Douet, CinemaNext France Sales
Director. "The fact that we have rendered this process compatible with a
range of existing projection systems allows for virtually immediate access to
this new technology. This is a premium offer at very competitive prices."
Officially unveiled 7 July following the CineEurope
convention in Barcelona (Spain), EclairColor is a revolutionary digital color solution.
Perfected in 2015 and the first half of 2016, it is the culmination of
extensive testing by Eclair engineers. CinemaNext notes that it will be
possible to equip all types of cinemas, regardless of screen size, to project
films mastered using EclairColor technology. The equipment can then be used to
project EclairColor mastered content as well as standard content.
