UK post production facility The Look is using the colour management capabilities of LightSpace CMS as part of a new remote grading service being offered direct to production companies and agencies who have their own in-house post production capabilities with Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve software.
Colour grading services via remote grading are only possible through the colour guarantees LightSpace CMS enables, ensuring the images seen on the client’s display match the images actively being graded live at The Look.
The Look performs a range of grading work across a range of industry sectors, all using LightSpace CMS for in-house colour management. Using the new remote grading services means that production companies and agencies can now edit a project at online resolution, upload it to The Look and work with the colourists to grade the project remotely. With all project settings saved both remotely as well as locally the production company or creative agency can make any changes without needing The Look to reapply a grade if the edit changes.
The Look’s lead colourist and company CEO, Thomas Urbye, commented: “Without the ability to have total confidence in your display’s colourimetry you can never be certain what you are seeing is what the client wants, or what you as the colourist expects to see. We have relied on Light Illusion’s renowned LightSpace colour management system (CMS) for all in-house display calibration for a number of years, and it lends itself perfectly to remote grading colour management for those clients serious about calibration, extending our colour guarantee capability into the client’s own location.”
