(Chiba, Japan--November 15, 2007) Under the heading "See the Big Picture," Imagica Digix Inc. will present a digital production demonstration at InterBEE on November 20 – 22 in the Makuhari Messe. The exhibit will include acquisition with the Thomson Viper FilmStream camera, monitoring with the Cinemage network display by Cine-tal, and pre-grading with SpeedGrade OnSet, the IRIDAS application for establishing and sharing creative looks.|
In the demonstration, Viper frames are grabbed from the Cinemage display and opened in SpeedGrade OnSet. There the images are graded, or existing looks are applied and modified as required. Once a look is established, a SpeedGrade .Look file is sent via the network back to the Cinemage for color graded playback or live monitoring. The result is a full digital workflow for production - and a true color pipeline to postproduction and film finishing.
"Digital technologies offer filmmakers almost infinite possibilities and that is a challenge for people who are not yet familiar with this approach," said Haruka Miyagawa of Imagica Digix. "The purpose of this demonstration is to show film professionals how they can get started with digital tools like Cinemage and SpeedGrade OnSet right now."
SpeedGrade OnSet runs on Windows, Mac OS X. See the full workflow at the Imagica Digix booth (No. 4406 in Hall 4) on November 20, 21, and 22 at the International Broadcast Equipment Exhibit in the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
