In a few words, what is EclairColor?

EclairColor is a new digital HDR (high dynamic range) color solution that combines a mastering process and the optimization of select projection system technologies already available on the market.

Description of the obvious benefits of using EclairColor…

A significantly improved image quality that is visible to all – exhibitors and audiences alike – through better color fidelity, greater contrast, more brightness, sharper details and more depth. The result is a more immersive experience. EclairColor is like a stereoscopic film without 3D glasses.

Is EclairColor similar to HDR?

Yes, it is a type of HDR. Currently, there are no HDR standards for cinema projection. It is a question that professional organizations such as SMPTE and DCI in the US, as well as the Commission Supérieure Technique de l’image et du son (CST) in France, are actively investigating.

How long was the EclairColor development process?

The EclairColor digital color solution is the culmination of eighteen months of extensive testing by Ymagis Group engineers. It is the result of a strong synergy between our teams at Eclair and CinemaNext and their collective expertise in the content services and exhibitor services sectors.
