According to the Press Release, Pixelworks has secured a multi-picture deal to bring Avatar and Titanic back to the big screen with a newly mastered 4K
“We’re bringing AVATAR and TITANIC back to the big screen, looking better in every way,” said James Cameron. “We will be presenting both films in 4K with high dynamic range visuals and have been working with Pixelworks’ TrueCut Motion platform to remaster the films in high frame rate, while keeping the cinematic look of the original.”
Does this mean we’ll finally see a 4K UltraHD Blu-ray release for both titles? It’s very likely now that James Cameron has signed a deal through Lightstorm Entertainment to apply this technology to the two films.
What is this new technology?
TrueCut Motion technology allows filmmakers to dial in the motion, with any source frame rate, shot by shot, in post-production. The TrueCut Motion platform then ensures that these creative choices are delivered consistently across every screen, whether in the theater or the home.
“Lightstorm is once again extending the boundaries of the cinematic experience, and we are ecstatic to be a part of that,” said Richard Miller, GM of TrueCut at Pixelworks. “After experiencing these remastered versions of AVATAR and TITANIC, we believe more and more filmmakers will be excited to take advantage of motion grading with TrueCut Motion technology.”
