Band Pro will showcase a complete on-set 4K workflow at NAB in April. The demonstration will begin with live image acquisition using the latest 4K digital cameras and new Leica Summicron-C prime lenses. The raw 4K footage will get on-set color correction from industry giant Technicolor, utilizing Technicolor’s on-set DIT cart running Colorfront software. Color corrected footage will then pass to Cine Post Production to highlight their COPRA on-set dallies software, and to an Ovide Smart Assist dallies system running Q-Take software. A full array of currently available 4K consumer televisions and 4K content players will complete the demonstration, provided by Just One Touch Video & Audio Centers.
“We’re really proud to be joined by Technicolor this year at NAB,” said Band Pro president and CEO, Amnon Band. “Needless to say, their industry experience is second to none. If you thought 4K was just a passing fad, come see what we have to show you. The fact of the matter is: 4K production is here and it’s thriving.”
In addition to the 4K Workflow demonstration, Band Pro will premiere new original 4K content in their dedicated lounge space. One highly anticipated short, Choreography Diagrams, by Eno Peci with dancers from the Vienna State Ballet, was shot in 4K RAW with the Sony F55 and F65 cameras and Leica Summicron-C prime lenses.
Founded in 1984, this year’s NAB show will also mark the 30th anniversary of Band Pro Film & Digital. To celebrate, raffle prizes from Sony, Canon and Fujinon will be given away each day of the show.
