Previsualization systems let dp's experiment

FROM NAB
LAS VEGAS — Even cinematographers are benefiting from the digital explosion.

Kodak announced Monday the introduction of a new previsualization system that gives directors of photography more freedom to examine different onset looks.

The Kodak Preview System, which combines high-end digital camera and printer technology, was developed in association with Panavision, from which it will be available for rental in approximately one month.

Previously, cinematographers had to rely on instant camera snapshots or final film to capture their surroundings with regard to lighting and color. Kodak’s new digital system allows DPs to capture still pictures, change the images using a variety of options and make instant high-quality prints. This technique, like digital editing, will allow for rapid and reliable experimentation before final proofs are recorded.

Additionally, to provide even more accuracy, Kodak designed KPS to copy how different film stocks will record final images at different speeds and lighting levels, thus providing a more detailed and accurate likeness of the finished frames.
