At this year’s IBC, FilmLight (Amsterdam, 13-17 September, Stand #7.A45) is demonstrating new colour management tools and products designed to improve efficiency and flexibility for a wide range of workflows. With colour grading an increasing feature across all content streams, client demand for premium quality grows, while timescales and budgets shrink. Long-term impact of many new technologies on the industry – such as HDR – streamlined and efficient workflows remain a pressing requirement for facilities.
The 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. The FilmLight API is designed to automate common but time-consuming tasks, such as VFX transcoding and retrieving/setting metadata.
