Live Stream: HDR On Set

This course seeks to demystify the process of monitoring live camera signals while shooting on projects where an HDR finish (HLG, HDR10/10+ or Dolby Vision) is required.


***PLEASE NOTE: This virtual training session will take place in the EASTERN TIME ZONE.***

Join us for HDR On Set, live from the comfort of your home, on the road, or anywhere. In this interactive session, you will see the instructor and be able to ask questions.

This class takes place on the Zoom video conference platform, which is free to join and easy to use. Instructions will be sent to you before the class begins. Once the class starts, you will see the instructor, the gear being used, and the instructor's presentation. You will be able to ask questions via a live, moderated chat. After the class ends, you will also receive a copy of the instructor's PowerPoint or Keynote presentation, and a recording of the class.

Many of today’s latest cameras offer recording in HDR color space, as well as various output capabilities for on-set monitoring. This class covers each of the high-end digital cinema cameras' HDR abilities, as well as the monitors that are available for viewing the signal properly.

While shooting with an HDR finish in mind offers greater flexibility in post, you need to learn how to monitor and expose your signal properly. HDR on set will take you through this process, with both artistic and technical implications in mind.
