Ned Price is the VP of Restoration at Warner Bros.


  • "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) - "For this new 4K Ultra HD release, the film was scanned from the original camera negative (and presumably the master internegative for optically-printed VFX shots) in 8K resolution and down sampled to 4K for this release at the proper 2.20:1 aspect ratio, a process overseen by Ned Price (VP of Restoration at Warner Bros.) along with longtime Kubrick confident Leon Vitali. The image was then graded for high dynamic range in both HDR10 and Dolby Vision." [1]
  • "House of Wax" - "We completed 4k scans of the 3-strip positive protection masters (YCM’s) for both left eye and right eye negatives for a total of 6-reels of film to restore the 3-D color composite image. The 6-layers of film were composited and aligned, using proprietary software to create a perfectly registered color image" [2]
  • "Ben-Hur" - "And of course the 8k scans took a long time. We never have worked on a project that was [this big]. I think it was 117 megabytes per frame." [3] [4]
  • "A Star is Born" - "Warner Bros. is scanning A Star Is Born in 6K primarily for restoration and preservation purposes. As a studio, our goal is to have a negative with the maximum amount of information to put back in the vault for archival purposes as well as to be ready for whatever new advances in optical media the future may bring." [5]
  • "Doctor Zhivago" - “We scanned the original camera negative at 8K resolution. And our final restoration was completed at 4K resolution” [6]
  • "A Clockwork Orange" [7]
