All about that Baselight at Sky13 December 2016
Sky has installed two Baselight Two 4K colour-grading systems at its headquarters in west London.
Each system has a Blackboard 2 control surface and a Baselight Assist for finishing and rendering, with two Baselight Conform Mac OS X software seats for content preparation.
“We cover the most advanced television content, including commercials and trailers, panel shows and documentaries,” said Cara Sheppard, post production, senior manager of entertainment and creative operations, Sky.
The system also possesses four floating Baselight for Avid licences, which add Baselight grading and colour rendering capabilities to standard Avid editing workstations.
“The colour toolset and grading capabilities in Baselight are by far the most advanced in the industry,” added Sheppard.
“FilmLight has always led the way with advances in UHD and HDR, which is of particular interest to us at the moment. And of course Baselight is our clients’ preferred grading system, and indeed is the grading system of choice amongst freelance colourists as well.”
