FilmLight’s On-Set and Dailies Products Win an Emmy


FilmLight has been awarded a 2012 Primetime Emmy Award for its color preview and dailies products – Truelight On-Set and Baselight TRANSFER.

The Primetime Emmy Awards in Engineering are presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for significant innovations in TV technology.

Truelight On-Set and Baselight Transfer form part of the end-to-end color pipeline developed by FilmLight, providing a consistent look and creative control from production to mastering for film and television. Truelight On-Set takes care of the wide range of color spaces and display technologies in use today and provides an accurate color rendition from the live feed of digital cameras. This allows cinematographers to communicate their creative intent by applying ASC CDL color correction, while exploiting and retaining the full dynamic range of the camera. Truelight On-Set also applies color transforms to enable the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) workflow.

Baselight TRANSFER is a fully integrated system designed for 4K/5K dailies workflows using the latest digital film cameras. It manages dailies processing from ingest and review through the generation of material for editorial, VFX and other deliverables. The system transcodes raw files from all common digital cameras, syncs sound, applies color and burn-ins and manages metadata. Baselight Transfer includes full support for ACES, ASC CDL and Truelight color management.

Both systems have been in regular use on high-end episodic television and feature films for more than three years including Body of Proof, Game of Thrones, House of Lies, Justified, NCIS, Once Upon A Time, Psych, Revenge and 90210.

The Primetime Emmy Awards Engineering Awards will be presented Oct. 24 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
