At this year’s IBC, FilmLight is set to demonstrate new colour management tools and products designed to improve efficiency and flexibility for a wide range of workflows.
The company said in a press statement that it has focused development on building in flexibility and speed with colour grading becoming an increasing feature across all content streams – from daytime TV to long-form drama series to feature films and beyond.
But with questions remaining about the long-term impact of many new technologies on the industry – such as HDR – streamlined and efficient workflows remain the most pressing requirement for facilities.
The company’s new Blackboard Classic control panel is designed within the same ergonomic profile as the popular Blackboard 1, with the addition of large high-resolution displays, a larger tablet and extendable connectivity. The Blackboard Classic sits between FilmLight’s soft-key Slate and Blackboard 2 panels, allowing Baselight artists to use a full-sized panel within budget constraints.
IBC2019 also sees demonstrations of the forthcoming powerful FilmLight API, the new programming interface to the Baselight colour grading platform and Daylight, FilmLight’s dailies management and transcoding system.
