On-Set, On-Location Color Management

With the introduction of next generation cameras, digital workflows, emerging standards, and expanding requirements for project finishing, the landscape for on-set color management continues to change dramatically. Technicolor’s third-generation DP Lights system is the most robust, portable solution for on-set, on-location color management. Developed under the watchful eyes of industry-leading cinematographers, the new DP Lights is the ultimate on-set color management system, self-contained in a lightweight, completely portable, rack-mountable box. Featuring Technicolor’s industry-leading color-science, it has been redesigned to address ACES, CDLs, and the myriad of quickly emerging HDR requirements.

“The great thing about DP Lights is that it was designed from the ground up with our [the cinematographer’s] input. This is a process like the best film cameras were built. The best cameras were a combination of engineering and listening to artistic intent. DP Lights on-set just naturally feels like an extension of what a cinematographer needs to make the palette just right.”

“We had one of the early iterations of [DP Lights] and it gave us so many more options, so many new possibilities to utilize. The beauty is I can become completely intuitive, completely visceral, and I can just dial. It’s a touchy-feely thing to get my colors and my contrasts right. I can really feel my way into the lighting, so it’s become a lighting tool for me, it’s part of my toolkit now.”

DP Lights has evolved into a mobile “production hub” for color management, with no computer required. It supports parallel work in real time, including monitoring of SDR and HDR; multiple cameras with dedicated hero monitor/display per camera and full tracking of metadata; web interface to troubleshoot and monitor remotely; and on-set creative decisions that flow easily into the color finishing process.
