JOINT AES/SMPTE MEETING--REAL TECHNICOLOR SHOWING



To All in the LA area or those with a large travel budget:
 
 This Tuesday Evening (July 29, 1997) there will be a meeting of the Los
 Angeles Section of the Audio Engineering Society (AES).  The subject of
 this presentation will be the "Improvement in Motion Picture Sound: The
 Academy's New Three-Way Loudspeaker System".  The presenters will be
 John Eargle and Doug Greenfield.  John is a consultant to JBL and Chief
 Engineer for Delos Records--One of the finest Classical Record Labels.
 Doug is with Dolby and works in their Hollywood Office.

  They will describe the improvements needed to present the new lower
 distortion Digital Sound Tracks and will explain the new 3-Way speaker
 system that has been installed in the Theater of the Academy of Motion 
Picture Arts and Sciences.  This is one of best theaters anywhere to
 view and listen to a motion picture.
 
 But the real reason for this posting is that at the end of presentation
 a full length motion picture will be shown.  This film will be "Batman
 and Robin".  This is the recent release.  AND THE REAL NEWS IS THAT
THIS
 WILL BE SHOWN FROM ONE OF ONLY TWO PRINTS that were made in the "newly
 invented" REAL Technicolor Dye Transfer Imbibition (IB) process.  There
 were 5 prints made of the GIANT re-release last year but this is the
 first prints that were made from a modern negative for public showning.
 This is the same prints and release that was discussed a few weeks ago
 on the TIG.  Another interesting fact of this film is that 28 minutes
of
 digital scanning and printing back to 5244 Negative are included.  This
 work was performed by E-Film.  This is a division of Composite Image
 Systems (CIS) that we also know from their Pin-registration Telecine
and
 compositing work.
 
 All are invited to this presentation.  You do not need to be either AES
 or SMPTE members. NO CHARGE.  Just show up.  Details as follows:
 
 LOCATION: Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Theater
         8949 Wilshire Blvd. Beverly Hills
 DATE: Tuesday, July 29, 1997
 TIME: 7:15pm...Opens at 6:15pm..arrive early
 PARKING: Across the street..arrive early as the parking structures fill
 up quickly and street parking is scarce....Beverly Hills does
         issue parking tickets at night so watch the parking signs.

 Maybe the only film released before the end of the year when
Technicolor
 will reportedly have the production line up and running.  This  was
done
 on a single color machine at a very slow speed. Look for the super
blacks without compression, saturated colors, correct skin tones and
tracking of the color all the way to black.  If only the color could
look this way on the output of any telecine.  Also note the increased
steadiness because the print has been pin-registered all the way from
camera negative to final print.---Maybe kind of difficult to tell
because of the scene content (black at the edge of the frame) but the
opening and closing credits show the stability.  But nothing else may be
show on the same projectors for a frame of reference for the projectors.
