Paris (France), 16 June 2017/ Eclair, a leader in content services for the motion picture and television industries (Ymagis Group – ISIN: FR0011471291, MAGIS, PEA-PME), today announced the launch of its UHD 4K Blu-ray authoring services with the French release of Damien Chazelle’s LA LA LAND (M6 Vidéo/SND).
"We are very proud to be the first in France to offer UHD 4K Blu-ray authoring services", explains Serge Sépulcre, Eclair’s VP Digital Distribution. "The stakes were very high with the advent of the first UHD 4K Blu-ray disc made in France given the film’s box office success, significant consumer demand and a very quick turnaround of just two weeks of production. Thanks to the confidence shown by the M6 Vidéo/SND team, we continue to build on our expertise and status as a European pioneer in the management of UHD 4K content."
"We are thrilled with this collaboration with Eclair on our first Blu-ray UHD release. The LA LA LAND 4K Blu-ray is a veritable technical tour-de-force that will delight fans," adds Tristan Frontier, SND’s Technical Director.
Eclair met the technical challenges inherent to this new format to deliver a unique high dynamic range (HDR) cinema experience with its video encoder, Ateme Titan, and DTS X audio. Eclair is renowned for its 4K post production work, including EclairColor HDR and HDR mastering, on numerous films, which has proven crucial to this video release and the mastering of the entire production chain.
