Onyx Cinema LED Technology at Eclair

Eclair is renowned for its expertise and creative value brought to any projects from feature-length films to TV series and the permanent quest for innovation, including HDR, has been part of its DNA since its founding, in 1907. 

On 7 November 2018, Eclair unveiled its new auditorium equipped with an Onyx Cinema LED solution at its Paris-Vanves facility. The Onyx screen incorporates EclairColor HDR and HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology, enhancing the projected image thanks to a peak brightness of 300 cd/m². The content appears more realistic and more detailed. Eclair thus became one of the first labs in the world to provide professional services specifically tailored for this new emissive technology from Samsung.

Contributing to the future of technology, Eclair is now ​capable of delivering the highest levels of visual quality and technical performance – contrast ratio of 1 000 000:1, color grading with true zero nit black, and EclairColor HDR DCP mastering – to European filmmakers, producers and distributors.

This includes the production of ultra-sharp 4K resolution content – in scope and flat formats – with peak brightness levels nearly 10 times greater than the normal cinema standard.

Taking full advantage of the Onyx’s capabilities with a specific version – deep blacks, unparalleled image uniformity and absence of distortion –  and being the only full range HDR cinema solution on the market, EclairColor HDR makes content come alive with unparalleled realism... the truest version to the artistic vision!
