At NAB we talked about GoPro’s Technicolor-Certified “ProTune Mode” that adds 24p and 35Mbps data rate to HERO2 cameras. This announcement has finally become a reality.
- 24fps frame rate, enabling GoPro HERO2 content to be easily intercut with other sources without a frame rate conversion;
- 35Mbps data rate for the industry’s highest quality compressed image with virtually zero artifacts;
- Neutral color profile, allowing for greater flexibility in a color correction workflow;
- Log curve encoding, offering more detail in shadows and highlights;
- Reduced sharpening and noise reduction for improved flexibility in professional post- production and color design workflows.
GoPro offers a software that helps organize and match footage in your color process:
Using Protune with GoPro CineForm Studio Premium and GoPro CineForm Studio Professional provides additional benefits, offering extensive color correction controls and customizable presets to create professional, cinematic looks from the GoPro HERO2 captured content. Non-destructive 3D LUTs provide even more flexibility, enabling users to further tweak their images, manipulate saturation and contrast and color correction controls to create highly stylized content.
On the left you see a comparison between a technicolor 5D mark III and GoPro ProTune image. More info on that in the video below.
The GoPro HERO2 action camera has become quite popular in the world of sports television.
In April when GoPro announced 35Mbit & the implementation of a Technicolor Gamma Curve they got our attention.
Today GoPro announced the WIFI BacPac™ + Wi-Fi Remote Combo. Their ad (seen above) looks pretty impressive to me. $99 will turn your iPhone (or other smartphone) into a remote monitor that’s good for up to 180m range and can connect to up to 50 GoPro’s.
This is intriguing not only because you can monitor & control your GoPro’s at a very reasonable price, but also because it opens up new possibilities of filmmaking and makes the GoPro even more versatile.
This can be used to monitor a quad-copter rig for example or control & monitor the camera at any other inconvenient location.
The GoPro HERO2 Technicolor ProTune firmware update is said to come soon. We’ll keep you posted.

Pomfort’s plugin for Final Cut that converts your logarhitmic Technicolor footage to linear was updated and now also works with Final Cut Pro X.
“The new Final Cut Pro X has a new filter architecture: Filters are exchanged between Motion and Final Cut Pro X as filter templates. The installer for our DSLRLog2Video puts everything right in place so that you can start with preset filter templates in Final Cut Pro X even without Motion installed.”
You can download the plugin for free because it is still in it’s beta state, but your license will expire on September 9th, 2011 and there is no word of pricing yet.
Download the free beta here.
