LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (APRIL 09, 2018) – Scenarist, LLC, the developer of Hollywood-standard Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc authoring systems based in Marin County, California announced today at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention that it has launched a comprehensive industry training and certification series aimed at qualifying authors in the Ultra HD Blu-ray format. The intention is to enable individuals and authoring facilities to gain key format and practical knowledge in understanding Ultra HD Blu-ray, including the use of HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and more. The result will mean more authors will be Ultra HD Blu-ray ready just in time to meet the demand for more titles in the new format.
“We rely on our authors to grow and differentiate our business which is rapidly moving towards Ultra HD Blu-ray,” said Brian Mackewich at BAM Media Services in New York. “Scenarist’s training and certification will help us more easily find qualified candidates for our open authoring positions.”
The Scenarist training program includes format training focusing on leveraging the differences between BD and Ultra HD Blu-ray, practical authoring experience using Scenarist UHD authoring software, and covers color space management for HDR, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+. Authors receive certification on successful completion of a test project.
“Facilities are their most productive when authors have the necessary information they need to deliver on their clients’ creative requirements on deadline,” said, Tone Bui, director of technical operations at Scenarist, LLC. “Our training is meant to distinguish authors seeking to learn more about their craft and to help facilities identify qualified candidates as they transition to Ultra HD Blu-ray”
