Team Mixing Light’s NAB Plans & Is My Legalizer Really Working?

It’s hard to believe, but it’s NAB time again (where does the rest of the year go?).

Once again, Team Mixing Light will be heading to Sin City to join the festivities, do plenty of teaching and co-host what’s become one of the hottest parties at NAB!

Check out part 1, to learn about our plans, and if you’re attending the 6th Annual Colorist Mixer, be sure to say hi to Robbie, Patrick, Dan and many of our great contributors.

In part 2, we dive into a question that we’ve been procrastinating answering for the longest time – mainly because we thought the answer might be overly complicated, but it turns out it wasn’t! Sorry to our member Steven for taking so long to answer this one:

‘I have a question about the Harris DL860. I am trying to legalize video according to your nice articles, but it seems like it doesn’t get colors within legal RGB gamut. I check it with Scope Box, using the g to r and g to b channel plots, but it doesn’t push the colors within the box, it just slightly nudges them. If I push the Harris settings drastically, it kinda gets them there, but I want my settings at 5-700mV.’

In addition to covering Steven’s issues, we’ll also discuss the real value of legalization in UHD and beyond workflows and what are the goals of many QC departments at various broadcasters around the world.

Got a question or something you’d like Team Mixing Light to discuss?

Remember, if you have questions that you’d like to get our opinion on please use the contact form. Your question may be included in a future episode of From The Mailbag.

Your questions can be aesthetic, technical or even client related. We’d love to hear from you, and your question might make future episodes of From The MailBag.

Enjoy the Mailbag!
