LONDON — FilmLight (www.filmlight.ltd.uk) was awarded a 2012 Primetime Emmy for its innovative color preview and dailies products, Truelight On-Set and Baselight Transfer. The Primetime Emmy Awards in Engineering are presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for significant innovations in TV technology, and were presented October 24th in Los Angeles.
Truelight On-Set and Baselight Transfer form part of the end-to-end color pipeline developed by FilmLight, providing a consistent look and creative control from scene to screen for film and television. Truelight On-Set takes care of the wide range of color spaces and display technologies in use today, and provides an accurate color rendition from the live feed of digital cameras. This allows Cinematographers to communicate their creative intent by applying ASC CDL color correction, while exploiting and retaining the full dynamic range of the camera. Truelight On-Set also applies color transforms to enable the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) workflow.
Baselight Transfer is a robust, fully integrated system designed to meet demanding 4K/5K dailies workflows using the latest digital film cameras. It manages dailies processing from ingest and review through the generation of material for editorial, VFX and other deliverables. The system transcodes raw files from all common digital cameras, syncs sound, applies color and burn-ins, and manages metadata. Baselight Transfer includes full support for ACES, ASC CDL and Truelight colour management.
Both systems have been in regular use on high-end episodic television and feature films for more than three years, including Body of Proof (ABC), Game of Thrones (HBO), House of Lies (Showtime), Justified (Sony), NCIS (CBS), Once Upon A Time (ABC), Psych (Universal), Revenge (ABS) and 90210 (CBS).
