X-Rite Photo Marketing just announced its schedule of November 2012 Webinars, developed to address specific color management topics and designed to appeal to both professional and serious amateur photographers. Webinar attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the live trainers.
“This month’s webinars provide color management tips not only for photographers but videographers as well,” said Mark Rezzonico, vice president, X-Rite Photo Marketing. “From learning about professional color management applications for video as well as still photography to creating images with amazing colors or gorgeous landscapes, one of X-Rite’s November webinars is sure to provide the expert advice and education that photographers need.”
Tuesday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. EST, Professional Monitor Calibration for Still & Video: As more still photographers move into videography with DSLR cameras the need for color management solutions specific to those output environments has become obvious. X-Rite’s i1Profiler software now includes video presets for popular video formats including NTSC, PAL-SECAM, and Rec. 709. The introduction last year of the new i1Display Pro colorimeter combined with these presets in i1Profiler makes the X-Rite i1Display Pro the perfect solution for calibrating and profiling monitors for video editing and output. When i1Display Pro is combined with X-Rite ColorCheckers the combination provides a capture to output solution for video editing that allows exceptional control over white balance in any scene. This brief webinar will review how to access and utilize the video presets in i1Profiler software and will briefly look at use of ColorCheckers in the video footage as a visual reference. For those shooting, editing, and preparing video for output this webinar will provide the insight into X-Rite color management solutions that can streamline color control in video.
