Colourlab Ai 1.3 brings Ed Lachman’s EL zone system, NDI support, HDR scopes and additional 3D LUT creation tools



Colourlab Ai is releasing its version 1.3 update with features and improvements focused on filmmakers. Since its initial release, Colourlab Ai has been increasingly adopted by cinematographers and filmmakers for its ability to create a Show LUT. In a quest to add character and individuality to the images created by modern digital cameras, a Show LUT has become one of the most essential tools of filmmakers. Thanks to Colourlab Ai features such as Ai Reference image matching, color management and Look Designer’s extensive film emulation functions, the Show LUT design process has been simplified and made more intuitive than ever, allowing filmmakers to design and develop their own Show LUTs. This version of Colourlab Ai streamlines this process even further.

Colourlab Ai is the world’s first color grading app to add the EL Zone system. Developed by Ed Lachman, ASC, the EL Zone system is an intuitive and innovative tool for displaying exposure values ​​using steps, a universal standard for cinematography. By measuring the value of light in stops in the color calibration, the app enables scene-based monitoring, which was only possible through the use of luxmeters on the set. This monitoring method is very beneficial because it works on all display devices and thus ensures consistency between SDR and HDR masters. Colourlab Ai’s implementation of EL zones allows users to quickly assess and control exposure for over 20 different camera types.

Colourlab Ai 1.3 also adds HDR waveforms, a new dual view vectorscope, and a brand new 3D LUT export and convert feature for easier appearance control.

Another key feature in this update is support for NDI. NDI has grown significantly in the industry, and Colourlab Ai application support now allows users to use the industry-leading ScopeBox and Nobe OmniScope range applications on a single Mac computer. NDI support also provides the ability to stream Colourlab Ai viewer to any device, anywhere, anywhere in the world via Zoom, Skype, OBS or any supported streaming platform. by NDI such as

About Colourlab Ai
Colourlab Ai is the culmination of years of research into human color perception. While traditional color science focuses on image processing, Colourlab Ai builds on discoveries in the neuroscientific field, focusing on the impact of color on our mind and emotions.

In addition to developing the appearance and matching of plans, Colourlab Ai is the backbone of a streamlined approach to the color management workflow. Originally, this workflow was reserved for large film productions only, but with Colourlab Ai’s toolset, a color management workflow has become simplified and accessible.

Backed by the best in the industry

In its early stages of development, both Google and Nvidia supported Color Intelligence’s R&D efforts in artificial intelligence. The company was selected by renowned Silicon Valley incubator program, Y Combinator, designed to bring funding and expertise to promising new products and businesses.

The company has attracted angel investment from Steve Bayes, former Avid product designer and Apple Pro Video product manager responsible for both Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro, and James Richings, previously co-CEO of EditShare EMEA and current owner and president of LWKS Software. Ltd. (Lightworks editing software).
