Sample text

2 HD written to film and projected mechanically If the transfer from HD tape to film is carried out with sufficient precision, and the quality of image produced by different companies can vary tremendously, then to all intents and purposes the resultant print will be very similar indeed to the same image having been acquired on 35 mm negative. There are those who will tell you different but I have met few who doubt the quality of HD who have seen the demonstration reels at Panavision. 3 HD shown on a state-of-the-art digital projector The quality of image on a cinema screen from a high-end digital projector showing an image that has never been anything but HD is simply stunning.

As the printing machines are very expensive you can imagine where the money goes. There are two forms of printers, one using lasers to write lines of information to the film stock and the other forming the whole image on a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) and then projecting it onto the film. They produce images with a slightly different character; both can be very good but you will need to test or see demonstrations of both before you shoot and decide which you are going to use, otherwise it will be impossible to visualize the finished picture during shooting.

3 HD shown on a state-of-the-art digital projector The quality of image on a cinema screen from a high-end digital projector showing an image that has never been anything but HD is simply stunning. It looks a little less like film origination than HD 8 Display quality 9 written back to film and arguments will go on for years yet as to whether that difference is an improvement or a degradation of the cinema picture quality. I come down firmly in the ‘it’s better’ camp. Maybe that is my training in the BBC, where we were always trying to reduce grain and other mechanical defects of the film process or maybe I, as a DoP, have simply been going in that direction all my working life, but I love the fact that it is very sharp, there is no dirt and dust, no picture weave and far less flicker.
