WORLD NEWS New integrated colour grading option 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.
