DJI Cinema Color Science

With the Ronin 4D 8K camera, DJI offers the revolutionary DJI Cinema Color Science (DCCS) color engine, which achieves incredibly accurate and beautiful natural skin tones, even in complex lighting conditions. Designed for professional aerial and terrestrial imaging equipment, the DCCS color engine offers limitless creative possibilities by vividly reproducing the kaleidoscopic colors seen by the human eye. The DCCS color engine features a new algorithm for smooth, detailed images, internal high-bitwidth color and tone processing for natural transitions, and multiple high-precision LUT processing modules for precise color adjustments in various lighting conditions.

To complement DCCS, DJI has developed the CineCore image processing platform, which provides high-quality digital intermediates for post-production. Equipped with a proprietary chip and state-of-the-art processor architecture, the CineCore platform supports videos up to 8K in professional codecs such as Apple ProRes RAW, ProRes 422 HQ, H.264 and, like the Inspire 3 model, CinemaDNG. The D-Gamut color space is optimized for deeper green tones and skin tones. The D-Log curve covers a dynamic range of over 14 stops, ensuring detailed retention of highlights and shadows even in difficult lighting conditions. This makes it easier to match the colors of ARRI cinema cameras and supports the ACES workflow. With its cinematic symmetrical dynamic distribution, DCCS maintains fine, natural transitions in lighting areas, making it the ideal choice for filmmakers seeking unmatched image quality and flexibility in color correction.

ACES compatibility

The Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) is a collaboration between the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, professional filmmakers and color scientists. It offers filmmakers a smooth, standardized color management experience. From image capture to final projection, ACES is now officially certified for the DJI Ronin 4D, Inspire 3 and Zenmuse projection standards.
