Éclair today announced the successful remastering of Antonin Baudry’s Le Chant du Loup, the first French feature film in 300 nits high dynamic range for Onyx Cinema LED screens. In addition to the Onyx Cinema LED version, Le Chant du Loup is available in ÉclairColor in 15 cinemas across France.
"We are proud to be the first lab in Europe to offer this type of 4K HDR remastering, which combines unprecedented technical performance and visual quality with optimal brightness and vivid, refined colors, from immaculate whites to the deepest blacks," says Pascal Mogavero, senior vice president of Éclair. "The Onyx solution is also ÉclairColor-certified through our global partnership with Samsung, and we anticipate growing demand from both producers and distributors."
Pathé Films, Trésor Films and Chi-Fou-Mi Productions produced the movie, which is being distributed in France by Pathé.
Éclair is the only company in the EMEA to provide professional services specifically tailored for the Onyx Cinema LED – contrast ratio of 1 000 000:1, HDR grading at 300 nits, and DCP mastering – for filmmakers, producers and distributors. To this end, Éclair installed an Onyx Cinema LED grading room and auditorium at its Paris-Vanves facility last November featuring a 3D-capable 5.2-meter screen, 18 seats, 7.1 audio technology from Harman’s JBL, and a full color-grading suite.
