IBC 2019: Creative Results With FilmLight


filmlight.logo2At 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.

The FilmLight API is designed to automate common but time-consuming tasks, such as VFX transcoding and retrieving/setting metadata.

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.
