L World’s first 4K digital cinema
frame rate conversion
S tadium rockers Muse recorded their concert in Rome’s
Olympic stadium in July this year in breathtaking 4K.
Serpent Productions recorded the gig in both HD and 4K
simultaneously using Sony F55 cameras. The decision to
post-produce a 4K cinema version rested on whether it
was at last possible to get a high enough quality standards
conversion at a low frame rate and in 4K. BTV Post
successfully managed both using Snell’s new Alchemist
OD file-based standards conversion platform to convert
the concert with stunning results. Alchemist OD was used
for the entire conversion, which dovetailed seamlessly with
BTV’s 4K Mistika post-production pipeline.
The Muse concert was released in U.K. cinemas in 4K on
Nov. 5, 2013.
