ARRICUBE enhances your day-to-day work dramatically by offering a possibility to match the colors of a video monitor or a digital projection with the film projection result.
As color grading is done digitally and the directors judge the colors on a standard monitor or in a digital projection, in cinema they often recognize that the colors do not look as they are intended.
ARRICUBE provides a solution to this problem by matching the two color spaces. While on a monitor colors are created by an additive color mixing (color creation by active light sources), on film colors are created by multiplicative color mixing (color creation by filtering gelatine layers in a white light source). Hence two different color gamuts are defined. As a result, the same color values do not necessarily give the same color sensation, and furthermore – not every color exists in both gamuts.
To match the different color spaces a 3D LUT (look up table) is essential. With a 3D LUT every color value of the input color space receives a referring color value in the output color space.
