Fujifilm showcased the "Image Processing System IS-100" (hereinafter: IS-100) at the NAB Show 2012 in Las Vegas and the Cine Gear Expo 2012 in Los Angels. Along with demonstrations of basic features of the IS-100, Fujifilm demonstrated some new concepts, which will expand the future of IS-100 and on-set color management for movie and television production. The system was demonstrated to a broad spectrum of users including cinematographers, digital imaging technicians, camera crews and broadcasters as well as post-production specialists.
A new MacOS version controller was introduced as a companion to the current iPad controller. Usable via a hardwire connection, along with the ability to interface with track ball devices such as the Tangent "Wave", this controller facilitates a more sensory color grading experience.
IS-100 can now work together with the Assimilate Scratch system. LUTs produced in IS-100 are able to be exported to Scratch and the rendered image is precisely reproduced. Scratch is widely used in color grading workflows, and this collaboration greatly expands the functionality and acceptance of the IS-100.
Also shown was a new concept: the, IS-100 MINI (CCBOXX MINI, tentative name in the U.S.), which will be a significant expansion of IS-100 capabilities at a very affordable cost. For on-set, it enables multiple monitors to be automatically updated with any created look from the IS-100, and allows each monitor to have a fully calibrated output. For post-production, the IS-100 MINI assures very precise monitor calibration, and also enables to preview final color and confirmation of legal color range. This IS-100 MINI is still a new concept and its launch will be determined upon the market demand.
