There are a lot of parameters involved in getting the best possible images from your archive
The final outcome will be vastly superior if this work is done in hardware for each scene individually BEFORE it is captured rather than after the event in software by just putting an “Auto-colour” filter over the whole film. it will take time to programme each scene individually into the “Memory HD” but the on-screen image is just so much better.
The “Memory HD” utilizes “Kolibri” software which allows for two types of pre-capture colour correction RGB and HSL (Hue, Saturation and Luminance). I have the option to manipulate any of the following parameters to get the image as close to perfect as possible - White Balance / Shading balance / Black Balance.
I can also manipulate Colour Hue, Colour Saturation, Colour Luminance and Colour Gain for each of
the following specific colour bands - Red / Green / Blue / Yellow / Cyan / Magenta
I can also moderate: Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, White Gain, Black Gain, White Clip, Black Clip
To negate any digital interference I can then select Digital Noise Reduction and I can choose the colour temperature of the light sphere to 3200k or 5600k.
Finally I have total control of the shutter speed of the Memory HD from “Off” to 1/50000s
It is my job to make sure that every frame of your film is accurately coloured with appropriate exposure. Getting the shadows and highlights right so that you can see individual leaves on a tree whilst still being able to see the folds on a wedding dress. A difficult balance to strike.
