BoxIO Lite SDI

Advanced Color Management

BoxIO Lite SDI is an advanced color management device designed for both color critical post production environments and demanding on set color management applications.

BoxIO Lite SDI supports both 3D and 1D LUTs for unparalleled image control. BoxIO Lite SDI can be used for calibration, on set grading, and other LUT based operations.

Calibration

Have a display that doesn't offer built-in 3D LUT based calibration? BoxIO interfaces directly with the industry's leading calibration software solutions for simple and accurate 3D LUT based display alignment.

Specially priced versions of CalMAN and LightSpace for FSI are available. BoxIO will also work with fully licensed versions of CalMAN Studio and LightSpace CMS.

Test Patch Generation

BoxIO is equipped with an integrated test pattern generator allowing for manual test patch generation from the BoxIO Utility or automated test pattern generation from calibration software like LightSpace or CalMAN*. Perform 3D LUT based calibration quickly and easily with BoxIO, a probe, and LightSpace or CalMAN.

*CalMAN TPG currently in beta

Direct Upload

Upload LUTs generated from LightSpace CMS and CalMAN software directly to BoxIO without exiting or running additional programs.

On Set Grading

BoxIO supports real-time LUT updates over IP allowing for direct integration with popular on set color management tools like Pomfort's LiveGrade Pro, QTAKE’s Grade module, Filmlight's Prelight, and FireFly Cinema's FireDay and FirePlay.


Prelight

Frame Capture

BoxIO supports frame capture over IP allowing select applications including FSI’s BoxIO Utility to grab reference still frames from incoming video signals.

Frame Callback

Frames captured in BoxIO's own .RAW format can be displayed using Frame Callback. This feature has many potential uses including review of reference stills in on set environments, display of complex test patterns, and preview of new looks on previously captured content. Frames can be loaded quickly from a connected computer or directly from 16 available memory slots on BoxIO for even faster frame recall.

BoxIO Utility

The BoxIO Utility provides useful toggles and controls for management of your BoxIO and can be used in conjunction with other applications from FSI’s software partners.

Quickly change mode and channel settings, load LUTs to BoxIO, toggle LUTs on and off instantly, update, manage BoxIO IP and WiFi settings, and capture frames at full resolution that can be saved instantly as a .JPG or .BMP

Connectivity

BoxIO Lite SDI comes equipped with 1 x 3Gbps SDI input, 1 x clean SDI loop through, and 2 processed SDI outputs.

Clean loop through SDI output mean BoxIO Lite SDI isn't limited to being an "end of chain" device.

All inputs and outputs offer full 12bit signal support.

Communicate with external devices over LAN, and WiFi.

BoxIO Lite SDI features a 4pin mini-xlr connector supporting 12V to 18V power and draws less than 10W of power.

Single-Channel Mode

BoxIO Lite SDI can operate in a single-channel mode. This allows a LUT to be applied on both processed SDI outputs so that your signal can be distributed to multiple locations from a single BoxIO. In single-channel mode BoxIO supports 33x33x33 size 3D LUTs.

Dual-Channel Mode

Two LUT Boxes In One

BoxIO Lite SDI can apply two separate LUTs to a signal at the same time essentially operating as two LUT boxes in a single device. In dual-channel mode each channel supports 17x17x17 size 3D LUTs.

Single-Channel

Store up to 16 33x33x33 size 3D LUTs and easily toggle between them.

Dual-Channel

Store up to 32 individual 17x17x17 size 3D LUTs (16 per channel) and easily toggle between them.
