Chris McLennan exclusively uses the HP DreamColor range of products to handle all of his image post production and general computing workflow. So its no surprise that one of the questions he most frequently gets asked is how he creates such vibrant colour in his images?
Simple… 1.08 billion colours to be exact. (Compare that to only 16 million which is the norm).
DreamColor display technology is used by many of the world’s leading animation studios and visual effect artists. If you don’t know what that means, grab the kids and go watch “Shrek”, “Avatar” or “Lord of the Rings” on DVD or Blu-Ray… You’ll soon get the idea. Quad HD with 10-bit colour and CRT class blacks gives you some pretty amazing results.
But its not only the colour accuracy that is a major feature in Chris’s workflow, it is the speed, performance and durability – both on the road using his Zbook mobile workstation and back in the office with the Z420 and Z27x display panel – that Chris relies so heavily on. With the latest model D810E cameras that Chris uses every day, file sizes are huge and not only storage but processing power must meet those demands.
HP products are robust, reliable and bursting with speed, using the latest technology in both graphics and hardware performance.
