Brighter, sharper, with more depth of field, more density and more detail, the images produced by EclairColor HDR (high dynamic range) technology (patents pending) have more contrast and greater fidelity, better reflecting the color originally intended by the creative teams. EclairColor is compatible with latest generation projectors from Sony Digital Cinema 4K and Barco, and adapts to all cinemas, from arthouses to the largest multiplexes. Unveiled in Europe and the US during the second half of 2016, this HDR technology significantly improves projection quality with richer colors, more light and definition, more depth of field and more density for a unique cinema experience.
