Kennel Joins LaserPacific, Will Lead Efforts In Motion Picture Services

LaserPacific Media Corporation announced today that Glenn Kennel has joined the company as vice president and general manager of Motion Picture Services. Kennel is rejoining the Kodak company after spending the past two years at Texas Instruments as director of Technology Development, DLP Cinema Products Group.

"Glenn played a pioneering role in articulating the digital workflow for motion pictures," says LaserPacific President Leon Silverman. "As a key member of the Kodak technology team that designed, developed and introduced Cineon, Glenn envisioned and helped to build the foundation for today's end-to-end motion picture process. He is a visionary leader who brings passion for the art form along with an extraordinary range of practical experience to his new role at an important juncture in the history of the industry."

Kennel notes that LaserPacific has been on the cutting edge of innovation in postproduction workflow since it was founded in 1982. The company offers integrated services starting with preproduction planning through the preparation of masters for distributing films to cinemas, television and the home video marketplace. "LaserPacific has built a bridge between the film and digital worlds that enables the creative community to leverage the best advantages that both have to offer," Kennel says. "We want to empower filmmakers. We plan to draw on the considerable technology and creative resources within both LaserPacific and Kodak to create the tools and the environments that deliver on the promise of an integrated digital workflow."

Laser Pacific offers end-to-end services for motion pictures from dailies and preview through DI options ranging from the company's proprietary HD RGB 4:4:4-based inDI(TM) system to 2K and 4K finishing, scanning and recording. Its recent motion picture projects include the upcoming releases Clerks 2, Babel, The Black Dahlia, Captivity and Southland Tales.

"Advances in technology have made 2K and 4K affordable and practical options, but if you have a consistent, calibrated workflow you shouldn't have to make creative compromises if the budget or aesthetics call for working at lower resolution," Kennel says.

Kennel earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Bucknell University, a master's degrees in electrical engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology, and a MBA from the Simon School at the University of Rochester. He began working on the development of hybrid motion imaging technologies for Kodak in 1985. He was a member of the technology teams that brought Kodak's Cineon digital film system to the marketplace and developed the prototype for the Spirit DataCine.

Kennel was director of technology for the Cinesite Digital Mastering Group in 1998 when the first DIs were done at the Kodak facility. He played a key role in helping the industry develop the digital cinema specifications as a consultant to Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) and through his chairmanship of the DC-28 Color ad hoc group. He was program manager for the Kodak digital cinema group from 2001 until joining Texas Instruments in 2004.
