Summary

In this chapter, the workflow in cinema film and TV production is described with all system components. Also, requirements for a high-end color management are pointed out. Before the digital film content is distributed to cinemas worldwide, it has to be compressed and watermarked in order to protect the copyright of the filmmakers. Several image compression and watermarking methods based on human image perception have been developed and evaluated. These methods are also the subject of this chapter - together with the application of the spatiotemporal characteristics of the human visual system to optimize the optical performance of imaging optics for digital cinema cameras. Finally, the color rendering potential of the light sources used for illuminants in TV and cinema production and the emotional aspects of cinema film are described.
