By technical editor Matt Allard:
On the Newsshooter/Teradek live show at IBC last week I sat down with Dale Backus from SmallHD for a walk through of their new live grade feature for the popular DP7 Pro monitor series. The monitor which was introduced some time ago has received multiple firmware upgrades adding new features. The last major upgrade added support for loading of look up tables (LUTs) to allow viewing of Log material with a specific ‘film look’ applied. The latest firmware allows you to tweak the image on the monitor and then save the corrections as a LUT for use by the editor or colourist.
This technology should bring on set colour management into the reach of smaller productions and even some documentary shoots – where the director or producer would like to view an image that is close in look to the final output.
