Mysteries of Color Correction Revealed!

An Evening with Colorist Steve Hullfish and Tektronix Engineer Steve Holmes
Has a director ever asked you if you can fix a few bad shots? Have you struggled to make a final sequence look better? Steve Hullfish brought the art of color correction from the dark arts to the light of day in 2002 with his book Color Correction for Digital Video: Using Desktop Tools to Perfect Your Image (now in its 2nd Edition), followed in 2008 by The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction (2nd Edition just released). At this special Editors' Lounge, Steve Hullfish gave a boost to attendee's color correction skills by revealing his tips and tricks in an up close and personal presentation.

Have you ever wondered what colors you are really looking at? Do you sweat about passing QC? Tektronix waveform displays to the rescue! Whether you think they are too technical to bother with or you just want to improve your ability to use them correctly, help arrived with a special class geared towards editors led by Tektronix Sr. Application Engineer, Steve Holmes. With over 25 years of experience installing, teaching, engineering, and managing video and CATV systems, Steve Holmes will help you achieve beautiful images with simple technical instruction.

The June Editors' Lounge was a phenomenal success. Guests were overwhelmingly surprised by how much they were able to learn from these amazing presenters in so short a time. Many thanks go to both Steves and to Tektronix for an eye-opening event. Special thanks to Key Code Media for behind-the-scenes assistance.
