HP and DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. (NYSE: DWA) previewed a display technology that helps solve a longstanding obstacle for digital content creators: affordable and consistent color accuracy between devices.
The result of an unprecedented collaboration between the two companies, the HP DreamColor Technology computer display provides accurate, predictable color and a simple color management process to assure vision-to-production color consistency in a widescreen liquid crystal display (LCD).
The display generates the industry's first combination of true 30-bit color - enabling a range of 1 billion colors - in an LED-backlit LCD at a fraction of the cost of most high-end, studio-quality LCD displays.
"For decades, storytellers have struggled to manage color in an accurate and consistent manner," said Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief executive officer and director, DreamWorks Animation. "Quite simply, when we make a movie about a big, green ogre, our concern is that our ogre is the same color of green throughout the film. HP has truly changed the game with its new display, giving DreamWorks Animation full visual fidelity across the board for the first time."
