“We are delighted to be presenting our cost-effective ÉclairColor HDR technology to CineEurope attendees,” said Ymagis Group CEO & co-founder Jean Mizrahi. “We are making great progress in marketing our new brand and building a strong line-up of films available in ÉclairColor in our first two territories: France and Germany. Thirty-six feature films including La La Land and The Lost City of Z, directed respectively by Damien Chazelle and James Gray, have been released or have been committed to by international and independent distributors both in France and in Germany.”

“With ÉclairColor, the benefits for moviegoers with a significantly enhanced image are real,” said Till Cussmann, senior vice president CinemaNext. “The color range is much richer, the gradients much more refined, even in the darkest colors. Cinemas, from the earliest days, have been on the cutting edge of image and sound innovation, and they must remain an experience unlike any other.”
