color depth

Part Two of our episode on everything color depth. Software and hardware to work in 10-bit, Apple’s new DCI-P3 color space, and more.

Most people know that a higher color (or bit) depth will give you more colors, but may be asking, “What is color depth and how does it work?” Do you have to buy new equipment? Do you even need those extra colors?

In Part Two of our special double episode on Color Depth, we continue the conversation with Renee Besta to talk about software and hardware that you’ll need to maintain 10-bit output throughout your entire workflow.
