ENS Louis-Lumière

The National Film, Photography & Sound Engineering School

 

June 1st and 2nd, 2007 Paris International Seminar

in partnership with FIAT, INA and FOCAL

 

Mastering the transition between

Standard Definition and High Definition TV

in AV production and post production

 

 

Call for submissions

 

HDTV is there. Technology is now available and cost effective. HD TV is a highly potential market for production and remastering. Digital High Definition will greatly influence the way TV programmes will be produced and diffused. This will lead to changes in the complete production and post-production film and video workflows.

 

Public and commercial broadcasters, national audiovisual archives and technical companies catering to the broadcasting industry, programme and footage producers are all directly concerned by this technological evolution.

 

In the current transitory period between two technologies, it is essential to fully understand the technical, artistic and economical challenges of the transition from Standard Definition to High Definition. The main changes in daily practice and in long term strategies need to be correctly evaluated, both for programmes production and post-production and for their preservation and storage.

 

The Louis-Lumière National Film, Photography & Sound Engineering School aims at standing at the forefront of professional concerns in an ever-changing technological environment. Three years ago, Louis-Lumière School started to get involved in High Definition and is now the first School for Cinema to have invested in a HD platform. 

 

The Louis-Lumière National Film, Photography & Sound Engineering School, in partnership with FIAT, INA and FOCAL, organises a 2 days International Seminar June 1st and 2nd, 2007, to help all those concerned by the outstanding issues challenging broadcasters, programme producers, archivists and managers in this transition from SD to HD.

 

This Seminar intends to explore all these issues and perspectives. 

 

We expect contributions for the 4 sessions as set in our preliminary programme.




Preliminary programme :

Afternoon : From SD to HD. This session will explore the video and audio technical and artistic issues of the transition from SD to HD, both in production and in post production.

Current SD-HD conversions solutions, their limits, pros and cons. Cathode-ray and flat screens. Storage : a matter of size ? Economics of SD to HD conversion.
