NET June Lunch Event Details

Color Grading in the Cloud

With the availability of cost-effective connectivity and the application of strategically placed imaging science, remote color grading in 10 or even 12 bit 4:4:4 has arrived. Please join us on June 16 as we share the results and experience of color timing ETC’s “Fathead” in full 4:4:4 10 bit color. We will talk with the creative team on their experience and hear from the service providers. Blackmagic Design and a few others will be there—and so should you. Post production’s future is all about options, and working in the cloud means never having to say “export.” Join us!

Event COVID Policy:

All attendees will be required to show proof of full vaccination.
