FilmLight has introduced a new integrated colour grading option for facilities with Baselight PLUS. Baselight PLUS is supplied as a complete package including installation if required, with options for editors and with hardware and software support.
Baselight software is capable of 4K realtime grading and the software is bundled with the Supermicro tower, including 24TB of internal RAID storage and 2TB of SSD for fast non-linear access. Control is through the FilmLight Slate panel which provides the same adaptive keys as the Blackboard 2 control surface, the same wear-free limitless encoders, and the same display screens and responsive trackball system.
Also included in the bundle are two licenses for Baselight Editions, grading plug-ins which reside inside Avid (Mac or PC) or Final Cut Pro editors. Baselight Editions support round-tripping with full Baselight systems, and grades can be adjusted in the edit suite, or round-tripped non-destructively to the colour room. It also includes FilmLight’s Truelight software to ensure monitors are consistently calibrated.
“What we are doing with Baselight PLUS is making it simple for post houses to add comprehensive and sophisticated colour grading,” said Wolfgang Lempp, co-founder of FilmLight. “Boutique edit houses can now add top class grading, and our existing users can add capacity quickly. With Baselight PLUS they can do it easily and cost-effectively yet still get the best grading environment in the business. We believe this package will see facilities realising the benefits of our products.”
