Light Illusion intros color management system for beta testing

Color management specialist Light Illusion has launched a new color management product called ColourSpace CMS for post facilities, studios and broadcasters. It is available for pre-order, which enables participation in the open beta program to provide feedback and input for the final release.

Running on a PC, ColourSpace CMS software connects to a wide variety of display calibration probes in order to accurately assess the color rendition of any display. It then creates color management data that can be used to perfect color accuracy by uploading it into a display that has color management features or, alternatively, applied as a correction to the signal feeding the display using associated hardware.

Applications include display calibration, color management and color workflows within the professional film, post production and broadcast industries and for display manufacturers and home cinema enthusiasts. ColourSpace CMS data is compatible with most color-related post platforms such as Resolve, Flame and Baselight.

ColourSpace CMS was designed to improve how color accuracy is measured and reported. Light Illusion CEO Steve Shaw says, “The most visually impressive aspect of ColourSpace CMS is the way it communicates color accuracy to the user. Full volumetric accuracy of any given display can be quickly and easily assessed using the new three-dimensional, fully interactive, resizable and color-coded graphs. Complex color data can be clearly analyzed with 3D CIE and normalized RGB Color Space graphs, including Error Tangent lines and color coded measure points.

“Color coding within the display graphs helps to quickly identify the accuracy of any given measured point. For example, green signifies that a measured color value is below 1dE, while orange shows a color as being between 1dE and 2.3dE, and red indicates a value above 2.3dE. Additional Tangent Lines are visual plots of any given point’s error, showing the recorded location of the measured color, compared to where the color should actually be located for any given color space.”

Display manufacturer Flanders Scientific has been involved in testing and feedback during the development of ColourSpace CMS. The open beta program will be available to anyone who has ordered ColourSpace CMS in advance.

Inside, custom foam, designed specifically for 24.5-inch FSI OLED monitors — including the AM250, CM250 and DM250 — allows users to put a monitor into the case with FSI’s MM100 VESA to LightStand mount still attached. It’s not designed for use with a desktop stand attached.

The second option is FSI’s TC27 Rolling Trolley Case ($495), which is a lighter and more compact carrying case that has the additional benefit of being able to accommodate a monitor with desktop stand, yoke mount or VESA to LightStand Mount still attached.

The TC27 trolley can easily accommodate most flat panel monitors ranging in size from 23 to 27 inches, including any generation of Apple’s 27-inch iMac computers. It can also be used on many monitors with a yoke mount or VESA to LightStand mount attached. Weighing in at 23.2 pounds, it includes a built-in retractable handle, interior foam padding and oversized wide-base wheels.
