(London, United Kingdom--August 4, 2014) FilmLight, the leading innovator in colour grading and post-production workflows, is using its presence at IBC2014 (Amsterdam, 12–16 September) to demonstrate how its technology helps broadcasters, movie producers and creative studios shorten timescales without compromising creativity and quality. FilmLight’s IBC stand will showcase its comprehensive range of products as an end-to-end process from shoot to delivery, using the same footage at each stage.
“Whether they are involved in Hollywood blockbusters or high-pressure television production, all our clients tell us that workflow is critical,” said Wolfgang Lempp, co-founder of FilmLight. “Collaborative working is not only more artistically satisfying, it is the best way to get the project finalised and out the door. The result is that audiences see the best possible quality and creativity, and our customers can take on more business.
FilmLight manages colour from set to deliverables. On display at IBC2014 will be a new version of FLIP, the real-time image processor for on-set grading of digital cameras, and a new dailies product, the comprehensive solution for near-set production.
Visitors will also be able to try Baselight Editions, which takes the colour processing engine from full Baselight workstations and implements it as a plugin within the foremost professional editing and VFX packages—including Avid, Final Cut Pro and Nuke, with more planned. The grade can be exchanged and adjusted simultaneously between editorial and effects as well as the colour suite, in a highly efficient and render-free workflow.
“What we have built, over the years, is a suite of products with cost-effective and highly productive technology, which all have the same core functionality but allow each production to design its own collaborative process,” continued Lempp. “Creative professionals can work where and when best suits the needs of their production, knowing that all their decisions are securely captured and preserved in the final deliverables.”
FilmLight will also show a high-end 4K Baselight grading system at IBC2014, allowing visitors to understand how the grading and finishing power can be applied to top-end TV productions, world-class commercials, music promos and feature films.
The new version of Baselight software has a number of key enhancements including direct DCP rendering, and comes with ACES 1.0 support and full HDR grading capability, including Dolby Vision.
Visitors to IBC2014 can see the broad range of FilmLight products on stand 7.F31.
