LUTs Are Simply Not A Quick Fix

Jul 7, 2019

Look Up Tables (aka LUTs) are additional tools that expand your capabilities when creating and saving color grading of your footage. But, exactly what is a LUT? Put simply, a LUT holds a set of defined data in numbers (a mathematical formula), which are ‘looked up’ by the software you’re using to change the input values of colors, saturation, brightness and contrast in the footage from your camera. In other words, a LUT is a conduit/code to transform color (RGB) input values from your camera to different color (RGB) output values to give your.

HDR Monitoring for Colorists Explained

Jun 8, 2019

Now that high dynamic range (HDR) video is becoming a production reality, monitors need HDR capability to correctly show the contrast range of the images. In these early days of HDR products, there are different HDR standards and even different approaches to the underlying technology within the monitors themselves. Interestingly, manufacturers also approach UHD/4K and HD HDR displays differently. “The primary concern with HDR monitoring is how well the dynamic range is handled,” states Hugo Gaggioni, chief technology officer for Sony Imaging Products and Solutions America. “The monitors must support the brightest highlights and deepest blacks—this is why exceptional contrast ratio capability is so important in HDR applications.”

This article from TV Technology, "Monitors Move Carefully Toward HDR", by Bob Kovacs, will help you grasp the advances made and, where the future lies for monitoring your grading projects in HDR - https://www.tvtechnology.com/news/monitors-move-ca...
