Inventions and discoveries have no bound, and it just proved out to be true when a Technicolor scientist surrounded by the latest virtual technology inspected a vial containing a few droplets of water and one million copies of a famous Hollywood History movie.
Yes, that is true. Going back in time to "The Wizard Of Oz" and "Gone with The Wind" that bought three-strip cameras into existence the company has come a long way since the Hollywood's golden age. And now that the company has come long enough to be celebrating its centenary, it is here with an awesome innovation - the encoding of movies into artificial DNA i.e. non-biological DNA. A DNA is an unimaginably small collection of almost 90,0000 molecules fit into one strand of human hair. Jean Bolot, the vice-president for research and innovation held a vial that had a million copies of 1902 French silent movie "A Trip to The Moon," which is known to be the first movie to use visual effects.
He adds that with these vials, the archives of all Hollywood studios could be easily fit into a single lego brick rather than occupying square kilometers of space.
With the switchover to digital technology, there have been a lot of changes and a lot of companies have come down with their innovations. But Technicolor has managed to bring in innovations very easily with higher standards.
