THX to showcase Cinespace colour management software at IBC

MUMBAI: THX has announced enhancements to its popular THX cineSpace colour management software, the de facto standard in film and television post-production for image colour accuracy and consistency, with support for 64-bit operating systems on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, in addition to 64-bit support in cinePlugin versions for Adobe Photoshop, Apple Shake, Eyeon Fusion, Nucoda Film Master and Nuke.

THX is exhibiting the new software at IBC in Amsterdam. The plugins are tightly integrated into the workflow and functionality of the associated systems and enable highly efficient display calibration and LUT selection.

The latest THX cineSpace offerings also add support for the new X-Rite i1 Display Pro colorimeter and the Datacolor Spyder line of colorimeters, providing facilities with more choices in terms of price, quality, accuracy and functionality for display calibration devices.

THX cineSpace products are used in major post-production, visual effects and animation facilities worldwide to calibrate monitors and projection systems, and establish an end-to-end colour pipeline. It ensures that visual artists are able to see how an image will appear in a wide range of target environments, including film projection, digital cinemas, plasma monitors and LCD consumer displays.

The THX cineSpace product line includes software programmes optimised for use in animation and visual effects workstations as well as products for use in Digital Intermediate and mastering facilities.

THX senior VP Rick Dean said, “The combination of our new color science tools, THX Media Director and critical viewing Room Certification are key components in our initiative to help post houses optimize workflow and ensure that artists are working in room environments that support their best creative efforts. THX cineSpace is one of the most advanced and flexible colour management systems on the market and is used by leading facilities all over the world.”

THX has given the example of Tippett Studio, which produces animation and visual effects sequences for films ranging from fantasies, such as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Smurfs, to dramatic productions, like the upcoming film, Hemmingway and Gelhorn.

Tippett Studio colour pipeline supervisor Page Frakes said, “Realism is key to producing compelling effects sequences. It’s absolutely critical that our artists know that what they see on their workstations translates well and tells the story properly when it makes it to the big screen, and then later to the home environment. It’s a non-trivial technical challenge and a requirement for success. The THX cineSpace color management software gives us the tools we need to calibrate our displays accurately and also emulate virtually any target viewing environment, from 2D and 3D digital cinema to LCD flat screens used in the home.”

Nice Shoes is a full service, artist-driven design, animation, visual effects and colour grading studio specialising in high-end commercials, web content, film, TV and music videos. Nice Shoes grades and finishes commercials for brands, such as adidas, Cartoon Network, Coca-Cola, Ford and Google.
