As more and 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 ColorChecker Targets 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.

Wednesday, March 27, 2013, 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM EDT
Travel photographer Andy Katz travels the world to capture amazing images. His photographs are in permanent collections of museums and private collectors the world over. The subject matter that captivates his vision is diverse from landscapes to portraits to still life in color and black and white. Andy uses light, contrast, and color to tell a story of his travels and evoke emotion in the viewer.
Andy’s work requires critical color management to capture and carry the subtleties of his work from the camera to the print. He uses Sony Alpha 99 and RX-1 to capture the entire nuance in every detail and the depth of every tonality. X-Rite ColorChecker Passport, i1Display Pro, and i1Publish Pro ensures accurate and repeatable reproduction of color and contrast every time.
This webinar will discuss traveling with photography equipment, finding the shot in faraway places, composition, using light, and more. Andy will talk about how he communicates with people, listens to their stories, and creates the relationships that allow him to capture beautiful and revealing portraits.
