Technicolor’s DP Lights, which will be featured at be featured at Codex Digital’s booth (#C8615) at NAB, is a color-correction and pre-visualization system that allows looks to be created in real-time during principal photography, aiding the DoP adjust for lighting and story subtleties, while capturing the full dynamic range of the camera’s image. Color decisions are saved as an ASC CDL (Color Decision List) and made available immediately to ingest into the Codex Digital system for dailies and media management.
