India studio FutureWorks to implement HDR and Aces

MUMBAI: FutureWorks is the first post-production facility in India to set up HDR (high definition range) grading and mastering. The post-production house recently installed Sony’s Flagship HDR Monitor BVM-X300.

With the digitisation of content and with streaming channels like Amazon and Netflix implementing newer standards, FutureWorks latest offering certainly gives them an edge over their competitors.

FutureWorks senior colorist Andreas Brueckl said, “HDR simply looks stunning and so realistic. Compared to older standards like REC709, we preserve highlights and shadow details to the maximum. Combined with our Aces pipeline on Baselight we can offer film style grading on the highest achievable level.”

HDR in TV allows one to display images of a higher latitude, larger colour gamut and higher contrast closer to what the human eyes can see in reality. Regular TVs display a maximum brightness of 100 nits while HDR TVs can show unto 1000 nits or even 4000 nits.

Further talking about ACES, Andreas explained, “ACES is a new standard for DI and file interchange, developed by the Academy of motion pictures. There are various benefits of ACES which include upto 32 stops of dynamic range and color gamut wider than the human eye. It also enables us to grade in film style with no limitation and compression.”
