Light Illusion has released LightSpace CMS a fully featured color management system which is a continued development of Light Illusion’s LUT manager display and calibration software. 
According to the company the new LightSpace CMS makes it much easier to implement total color management facility-wide for DI vfx grading animation games or exhibition using any direct display or projection monitoring system. LightSpace CMS is not only suitable for visualizing film images on digital displays but also for directly matching different displays allowing operators colorists supervisors DPs and directors to know a matched final look is presented at every point in the digital post-production chain saving time and effort and avoiding unexpected results. 

”LightSpace CMS makes accurate color management available to all industry operations and its new tools and capabilities really help to enhance facilities’ calibration capabilities and accuracy.” says Steve Shaw CEO of Light Illusion. “While LightSpace CMS will be welcome in all facilities looking for high quality color management its affordable price makes it easy for studios post and broadcast facilities to establish company-wide color calibration regardless of the specific display or creative hardware being used.”

 Accurate color management requires precise profiling of the display devices in use as well as the whole image workflow. LightSpace says CMS enables customers to accurately measure all displays to fully manage the color pipeline regardless of the technology being used including CRT LCD plasma DPL LED direct display or projection digital or film. From the generated profiles all display technologies within a facility (or even wider afield) can be accurately managed.

 Shaw says “It is LightSpace CMS’s advanced color inverse and transform functions that enable display profile data to be accurately managed by the user allowing precise control over the final look of all material regardless of the final deliverable requirements. It doesn’t matter if the workflow pipeline is film-source to film-deliverable via a Rec709 P3 or XYZ DI environment back to film video or DCI deliverable LightSpace CMS can accurately generate matched LUTs converting profiles and color spaces as required. Totally digital projects such as animation digital cinematography video capture or images from DSLR cameras can equally be match to the final deliverable requirement. Using the color inverse and transform functions it is possible to ensure all workflow displays preview the image matched to the final deliverable as well as having all displays matched accurately to each other.”
