Marquise Technologies to partner with Canon

Marquise Technologies have announced their partnership with Canon, providing studios, broadcasters and post-production companies with a unique solution for their HDR mastering workflows.

By providing full control of the mastering display in mastering system MIST and reference player ICE, Marquise Technologies offers a unique feature that enhances HDR mastering and quality control. The characterization of the mastering display based on the ST-2086 standard is a key element when working in PQ (ST-2084) and Dolby Vision. Once these parameters are set in MIST or ICE, they are sent to the Canon monitor to configure the display in the right mode by using a remote control protocol : color space, EOTF, luminance levels are automatically set to the correct value.

Canon's flagship 24" model DP-V2420 4K Reference Display satisfies the High Luminance performance required for HDR workflows. It qualifies as a Dolby Vision mastering monitor, as well as the proposed HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) broadcast HDR standards. This is the only available reference monitor today that provides a remote control protocol.

“Delivering a simplified workflow is key for widespread HDR adoption. Marquise Technologies have taken an important step in this regard aligning the mastering display to the mastering system. Canon has been delighted to collaborate on this project, which will no doubt further support HDR uptake across the industry.” said Kieran Magee, Professional Imaging Director, Canon Europe

“Our vision for developing our products is always driven by the ease of operation. These new HDR standards are adding complexity and our role as a software manufacturer is to help our users deliver what they need rapidly and in accuracy with the standards. We are very glad that Canon’s products philosophy and technology help our intentions” added Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies.
