Fujifilm showcased the “Image Processing System IS-100” (Introduced as The CCBOXX in the U.S.) and its new concept at the InterBEE show 2012 in Japan.
Fujifilm demonstrated the “Image Processing System IS-100” at the InterBEE show 2012 in Makuhari, Japan, one of the biggest exhibition shows for audio, video, and communications for professionals. In addition to demonstrating basic features of the IS-100, Fujifilm demonstrated the workflow that was actually adopted for the Japanese movie project “The Brain Man” (Japanese title: No-Otoko, release on February 2013, Japan). Also, Fujifilm introduced the new concept of “IS-100 Mini (Tentative)” to cinematographers and digital imaging technicians.
“The Brain Man” is the first movie project to be shot using the IS-100 in Japan. In an interview with the cinematographer Mr. Kurita, he said “IS-100 offers the best solution to our most significant concern, to have consistency of film's look throughout the production, such as on on-set monitors, at post-production, and also on screen projectors”. The digital imaging technician, Mr. Sakurai adds, “We chose IS-100 because it enables us to easily create a look with an iPad controller and preview the final images on on-set monitors immediately”. A colorist, Mr. Yamashita, recognizes IS-100 as the best solution to the digital intermediate process because “IS-100 is based on ACES specifications. With IS-100, as it is guaranteed that we all have the same look, we can save time we used to spend in order to make sure that we have the same look with cinematographers”.
Fujifilm also introduced its new concept IS-100 Mini, which can work with multiple monitors and cameras. It enables multiple monitors to be individually calibrated for proper viewing, and it is also allows previewing live action from each camera with any created look from IS-100. IS-100 Mini will be a significant expansion of IS-100 capabilities. This is still a new concept and its launch will be determined upon the market demand.
