LightSpace CMS Colour Management Made Easy

Date: 25/06/2010
LightSpace CMS  Colour Management Made Easy UK specialist digital film consultancy Light Illusion announces the release of LightSpace CMS, a fully featured Colour Management System (CMS), which is a continued development of Light Illusion's already widely adopted LUT Manager display and calibration software. The development of Light Illusion's software and services is directly driven by needs recognised through the company's consultancy and real-world experience. The results provide tools and capabilities directly applicable to industry requirements. The launch of LightSpace CMS brings major calibration enhancements to users, with full display and film profiling capabilities, as well as the automatic generation of calibration LUTs from the various profiles generated.
 
The existing Light Illusion 3D LUT Manager has become one of the industry's most widely adopted and flexible colour management systems, with worldwide sales made where colour management is critical within production, post-production, broadcast and projection. The new LightSpace CMS makes it much easier to implement total colour management facility-wide, for DI, vfx, grading, animation, games, or exhibition, using any direct display or projection monitoring system. LightSpace CMS is not only suitable for visualising film images on digital displays, but also for directly matching different displays, allowing operators, colourists, supervisors, DoPs and directors to know a matched final look is presented at every point in the digital post-production chain, saving time and effort and avoiding unexpected results.
 
"LightSpace CMS makes accurate colour management available to all industry operations, and its new tools and capabilities really help to enhance facilities' calibration capabilities and accuracy." says Steve Shaw, CEO of Light Illusion. "While LightSpace CMS will be welcome in all facilities looking for high quality colour management, its affordable price makes it easy for studios, post and broadcast facilities to establish company-wide colour calibration, regardless of the specific display or creative hardware being used."
 
LightSpace CMS is a totally open solution, providing calibration for all and any system where colour management is critical, and brings together a range of tools and capabilities that go far further than simple LUT building, with options that provide for full underlying colour management, display profiling, profile matching (auto-LUT generation), direct profile and LUT transformation, calibration visualisation and display comparison, colour space conversion, and even batch image processing with multiple image parameter controls.
 
Accurate colour management requires precise profiling of the display devices in use, as well as the whole image workflow. LightSpace CMS enables customers to accurately measure all displays to fully manage the colour pipeline, regardless of the technology being used, including CRT, LCD, plasma, DPL, LED, direct display or projection, digital or film. From the generated profiles all display technologies within a facility (or even wider afield) can be accurately managed.
 
A wide and growing range of measuring probes can be used, including X-Rite Hubble, Klein K-10, i1 Pro, i1 Display2, i1 Display1, i1 Display LT, and ColorMunki.
 
Steve adds, "It is LightSpace CMS's advanced colour inverse and transform functions that enable display profile data to be accurately managed by the user, allowing precise control over the final look of all material regardless of the final deliverable requirements. It doesn't matter if the workflow pipeline is film-source to film-deliverable, via a Rec709, P3 or XYZ DI environment, back to film, video or DCI deliverable, LightSpace CMS can accurately generate matched LUTs converting profiles and colour spaces as required. Totally digital projects, such as animation, digital cinematography, video capture, or images from DSLR cameras can equally be match to the final deliverable requirement. Using the colour inverse and transform functions it is possible to ensure all workflow displays preview the image matched to the final deliverable, as well as having all displays matched accurately to each other."
 
LightSpace CMS can be purchased as a fully configured package, or via option components allowing customers to build their colour management tools as their requirement grows.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
