The Soho boutique post house The Look has installed a LightSpace CMS for facility-wide color management control. 

For Thomas Urbye managing directyor of The Look the selection of LightSpace CMS was the perfect solution to the growing needs for accurate calibration throughout the facility as well as extending into associated operations and workflows including VFX editorial and on-set look management. 

Urbye says “Accurate color management has become increasingly critical as display technology has continued to move away from traditional CRT monitors to LCDs with varying backlight technology; digital projection; plasmas; and more. Additionally the growth in digital image capture has brought with it a need for better color management throughout a project’s entire workflow. With LightSpace CMS from Light Illusion we are able to provide the best possible display calibration control.”

 Urbye adds “At The Look we don‚t just have multiple display types but multiple creative systems as well meaning we require accurate calibration combined with full LUT management. LightSpace CMS is the only system to provide such a complete solution.”

 Of additional importance at The Look is the recent investment in SGO's Mistika Stereo 3D 2K grading and compositing system which along with The Look's 3D ready Quantel Pablo systems makes the facility one of the most stereo 3D capable in town.

 Urbye says “With the differences in 3D displays in both cinema and broadcast it's imperative we're 100 percent confident that we're set up for perfect color calibration to produce the best possible images in every environment for our clients.”

 Steve Shaw CEO of Light Illusion says “Color calibration is an area Light Illusion has specialized in for some time and we have developed a range of solutions for the post and production environments from complete digital facility calibration system through to support services for film lab profiling including stereo 3D calibration.”
