Éclair today announced that it has completed a high dynamic range remastering of the Spanish version of Hans Petter Moland’s Cold Pursuit. It is the second feature film color graded and mastered at 300 nits for Onyx Cinema LED screens through its Éclair Color HDR technology.

Éclair today announced that it has completed a high dynamic range remastering of the Spanish version of Hans Petter Moland’s Cold Pursuit."We are thrilled audiences will discover Venganza Bajo Cero in its specially remastered 300-nit HDR version for Onyx Cinema LED technology at the Odeon Sambil cinema in Madrid. It truly brings out the best in Moland’s electrifying action thriller,” said Eduardo Escudero, business manager at A Contracorriente Films. "By taking full advantage of the screen’s technical capabilities – Éclair Color HDR DCP, greater contrast and more luminance – the film provides a one-of-a-kind viewing experience for moviegoers.”

“Following Éclair’s 4K HDR remastering of Antonin Baudry’s critically-acclaimed Le Chant du Loup (The Wolf’s Call) for Onyx screens last month, the color grading on Venganza Bajo Cero was performed as a close collaboration between our teams in Spain and France,” said Angel Martin, Éclair Spain country manager. “Éclair is proud to be the only lab in the EMEA, and the second in the world, to provide professional services tailored for this new emissive technology – infinite contrast, color grading with true zero nit black, and Éclair Color DCP mastering – delivering the highest levels of visual quality and technical performance.” 

“The Onyx Cinema LED screen benefits from Éclair Color HDR technology to achieve a level of detail and realism unseen previously,” said David Hernandez, Samsung Electronics’ cinema business development manager. “The combination of these two technologies results in ultra-sharp resolution and optimal luminosity. The heightened contrast brings out vibrant and refined colors, from immaculate whites to the deepest blacks.”

To meet customers’ evolving needs, Éclair is equipped with an Onyx Cinema LED grading room and auditorium featuring a 3D-capable 5.2-meter screen, 18 seats, 7.1 audio technology, and a full color-grading suite.

Cold Pursuit is being released by StudioCanal, Mas Films, and Paradox Films. Venganza Bajo Cero (Cold Pursuit), starring Liam Neeson and distributed in Spain by A Contracorriente Films, will have a special screening in Madrid today at Odeon Multicines’ Odeon Sambil, the country’s first Onyx Cinema LED-equipped multiplex, before its Spanish theatrical release in May.
