New software upgrades support import, export and application of color LUTs


VALHALLA, N.Y., September 17, 2013 – Featuring groundbreaking color management and class-leading capability, FUJIFILM North America Corporation’s Imaging Division will return to 2013 Cine Gear Expo New York to present its highly popular IS-mini LUT box and monitor calibration device, along with the sophisticated IS-100 "CCBOXX" on-set look creation system. Fujifilm's Image Processing System product line was developed to serve the critical color management needs of digital imaging technicians (DITs), cinematographers, and post-production facilities. The show will be held at The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th St, New York City, September 27 - 28, 2013.

Fujifilm will be demonstrating several new features for the Image Processing System product line. A new upgrade to the IS MiniManager software, that runs on both Windows and Apple computer platforms, will now allow the import and application of color LUTs created by both Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve and Filmlight Truelight color correction systems. For the IS-100, Fujifilm now will support LUT exports for Colorfront On-Set Dailies and Express Dailies systems, in addition to the long list of other supported formats. Both of these new features enhance and broaden the appeal of the Fujifilm Image Processing System for cinematography and post-production.

The IS-mini is a small hardware device that takes incoming HD-SDI digital camera moving picture video and converts the color information via two sets of 1D LUTs and 3D LUTs to outputs of both HS-SDI and HDMI connections – all in record time while still delivering high quality imaging. The IS-mini is an extension of the technologies first introduced through the CCBOXX (Image Processing System IS-100), and is designed to work with the CCBOXX by extending the abilities to have accurately profiled production monitors and remote color adjustment of live digital images during movie and television productions. Together, they form a powerful on-set color management system.

By use of a new dedicated software application, the IS-mini can also operate independently of the CCBOXX to create monitor calibrations and apply them to almost any kind of production monitor. Because of the built-in Ethernet connection, multiple IS-mini units can be assembled into a powerful array for multi-monitor/multi-camera image control and very precise color matching.

The CCBOXX is an ACES based on-set color management solution with extraordinary precision and flexibility. With the CCBOXX, cameras can be calibrated instantly on-site, while the monitors' calibrations are fully automated, eliminating the need for specialized skills. The CCBOXX is so effective that it has recently been used on two US-based feature length movies and several commercials.

“The IS-mini and CCBOXX are designed to be used by colorists, digital imaging technicians, editors, VFX providers, and directors of photography,” said Manny Almeida, senior vice president and general manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Imaging and Electronic Imaging Divisions. “These devices are grounded in Fujifilm’s award-winning technology for motion picture film, as well as its knowledge and experience with color.”
