At NAB 2013, FilmLight will launch its new Baselight ONE grading system – a diskless, 4U tower system with the full Baselight creative toolset, and a 2TB solid-state internal cache, as well as Slate – a new compact grading control panel that retains the features and ergonomics of the Blackboard 2 panel, but in a smaller form factor and at a lower price point.
In addition, the company will introduce FLUX Store – a new approach to storing and managing the huge amounts of content generated by today’s digital workflows. Capable of streaming 2K and 4K content into Baselight systems over dual-link 10 gigabit ethernet, it includes user-expandable storage up to 80TB.
The company’s Baselight Editions integrate the Baselight grading toolset into Avid, Final Cut Pro 7 and NUKE systems. At NAB the company will preview its upcoming Baselight for Avid Windows. Baselight Editions use the same OpenEXR-based BLG (Baselight Grade) files as all systems in the FilmLight range, so grading decisions can be passed between on set, near set and the grading suite simply and transparently.
