LEADING ROLE IN HOLLYWOOD MOVIE MAKING
Digital Dailies Provide Affordable, Quality Images For Audiences to Preview the Movies of Tomorrow
WAYNE, NJ and HOLLYWOOD, CA (April 8, 2002) - Screening dailies, the process of viewing film footage from the previous day, by producers, directors and cinematographers, is being revolutionized with the help of JVC PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS and LaserPacific Media Corporation (Nasdaq:LPAC).
In a joint project that began in November of last year, industry post production pioneer LaserPacific has begun to use JVCs D-VHS and D-ILA technology to display dailies transferred to high definition. For years, Hollywood has viewed dailies on film and for many, will continue to do so. But as more movies utilize digital production and post-production methods, film dailies may not be an option for certain projects. This process makes high quality dailies on location practical and is superior to conventional standard definition videocassettes.
LaserPacific has been developing processes and systems that allow studios to see high quality images that are practical, affordable and portable. Transferring dailies to high definition is more cost effective for processes such as digital previews where films are shown to audiences before they are complete. This new process of digital dailies and digital previews provide LaserPacific and JVC the opportunity to introduce the power of this technology to Hollywood.
JVC and LaserPacific will be showing the Digital Dailies system at NAB 2002 in Las Vegas, NV from April 8-11, in the JVC booth. Visitors will see the high quality of Digital Dailies based on D-VHS techologies matched with D-ILA projection. JVC will showcase its DLA-G150CL, specifically created for screening room, production, post-production environments and upscale home theaters. The DLA-G150CL CineLine projector displays images that are as close to film as possible for critical screening applications.
