Ryan Kunkleman in NewsShooter.com:
“It’s given me more control and more flexibility. Other than the wireless CDL (Color Decision List) capabilities the fact that I can control camera settings wirelessly is amazing. When my Red camera footage comes to me it is already graded for dailies, no saving CDLs and applying them in software-based grading suites. Obviously small adjustments are made to make sure the footage all matches but the broad strokes are already there.
"It’s also allowed me to get rid of a lot of cables. There are sets where I have to run two or three cables from my cart back to camera or the AC or a Director’s monitor, with the Colr I can park a box on the camera and daisychain monitors together saving a lot of time and headaches.”
COLR is a real-time LUT box, camera control bridge, and HDMI/SDI cross-converter in one tiny package. COLR integrates with Pomfort LiveGrade Pro, allowing DITs and colourists to give everyone the right look.
During camera prep, on your cart, through colour timing or on camera, COLR enables directors, ACs, and DITs to see what they need. Multiple presets, combining CDL and 33 point 3D LUTs, can be stored on the device for quick conversion or custom looks at the touch of a button.
COLR integrates with Pomfort LiveGrade Pro, giving you fine control of your looks over Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or via USB. Looks can be saved directly to COLR, and LiveGrade supports multiple simultaneous devices.
COLR supports just about every camera signal on the market -- from GoPro to ALEXA. RAW or LOG signals can be converted for monitoring, and every camera's look can be synced to show directors their vision while shooting. COLR also enables wireless camera control for Ethernet-enabled cameras, including FoolControl for RED digital cinema cameras and ARRI packages.
Whether your production requires industry standard colour and gamma-accurate monitors or large consumer-grade screens, COLR is compatible. Versatility is no longer a luxury with COLR’s built-in signal converter and simultaneous HDMI and SDI outputs.
With COLR as a piece of the puzzle, the Connected Set initiative encourages seamless integration between all Teradek products, ultimately streamlining on and off-set workflows. This will support a consistent workflow throughout the production process, whether on-set with zero delay transmission, iPad monitoring, or for off-site dailies review and final colour grading. Stay ahead of the curve via free firmware upgrades and native integration with other Teradek products including Bolt, Cube, and LOKR.
