The perfect budget-priced colour grading monitor!

Jan 24, 2020

The DreamColor Z31x Studio display is a high-end, 10-bit display that produces one billion colors. Using its built-in colorimeter, it can be calibrated on-demand or on-schedule – it’s up to you to decide, then the display does the rest. This keeps your colors accurate throughout the project. Because you can schedule the calibration, your display can be fine-tuned every morning when you begin work.

The display is based on IPS LCD technology. IPS is a screen technology for liquid-crystal displays. It was designed to solve the main limitations of the twisted nematic field effect matrix LCDs which were prevalent in the late 1980s. The IPS displays have a wide viewing angle (178°) and IPS technology provides some of the most accurate color in the industry. Notably, IPS displays have high contrast levels, and IPS provides better display of blacks. With 10-bit color, the DreamColor monitors provide over one billion colors. To better manage colors, the DreamColor technology allows customers to load custom LUTs.

Four Common Color Grading Mistakes to Avoid

Dec 18, 2019

A lot goes into making a video look professional, and one of the final and most important steps is the color grade. It's easy to make a mistake here, and this great video will highlight four such missteps that new videographers often make when it comes time to color grade. This helpful video from Chrystopher Rhodes and YCImaging will show you four mistakes new videographers commonly make when they color grade their work. Color grading is an important step, as it's both rather technical and a chance to add your artistic signature and to further solidify your signature style. As such, it's especially important to give it lots of careful attention.

Of the mistakes, perhaps the most common one is simply going over the top with the grade. It can be quite easy to go from stylized to garish, even for more seasoned editors. It's a great idea to step away from your computer after you finish your grade for an hour or even a night, then re-watch your footage with fresh eyes. Less is often more in this case.
