New Advanced BoxIO Capabilities

BoxIO continues to make its mark as an industry leading color management device with two new capabilities missing from most other LUT devices on the market:

DL-SDI Mode for support of SMPTE 372M Dual-Link SDI signals. BoxIO's support of 12bit 4:4:4 signals over your choice of 3G or Dual-Link SDI sets it apart from virtually all other LUT devices.

Manual Payload ID Selection. BoxIO can automatically detect Payload ID for simple configuration with any signal format. However, there are circumstances where Payload ID information may be incorrect or missing from your source. BoxIO has you covered with new Manual Payload ID options.

Learn more about BoxIO here.

FSI Solutions CAM3 Camera Case Review

The CAM3 Camera Transport Case is now in stock and Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media has been kind enough to share his thoughts on this new product offering from Flanders Scientific's FSI Solutions division.

Introducing the new CRI CR-300 Spectroradiometer

Colorimetry Research, Inc. has added to its lineup of incredibly capable measuring devices with a new 2nm spectral bandwidth spectroradiometer, the CR-300. The 4.5nm spectral bandwidth CR-250 brought significant change to the display measurement industry by delivering performance on par with $25,000+ spectroradiometers at a fraction of the cost. The CR-300 continues this tradition of industry changing innovation with performance previously unobtainable under $35,000.

Flanders Scientific, Inc. CEO & General Manager Bram Desmet had this to say about the CR-300:

"2nm spectral bandwidth spectroradiometers are admittedly overkill for most users. A Colorimetry Research CR-250 or Photo Research PR-670 are going to provide you with all of the accuracy you need for the vast majority of display devices. However, for companies or individuals dealing with new and emerging display technologies these highly precise instruments can provide significant real-world benefits. After considerable testing FSI has invested in its own CR-300 for in-lab use and we have also started reselling this model for clients that share our passion for cutting edge display metrology equipment."

The CR-300 is now available from Flanders Scientific for $17,000.

BoxIO, Now Shipping

Flanders Scientific's range of Advanced Color Management Devices, BoxIO, have officially started shipping.

Reference Stills with BoxIO Frame Capture

The BoxIO Utility is now also available as a free download for both Mac and PC. This application allows you to load 1D and 3D LUTs, control mode and input settings, set network preferences, and grab full resolution reference stills from BoxIO with or without LUT applied. Reference stills can be saved as full resolution .JPG or .BMP files.

Two LUT Boxes in One Device

BoxIO can operate in single-channel or dual-channel mode.

In single-channel mode BoxIO allows you to load 16 separate 33 side cubes. In dual-channel mode BoxIO operates like two independent LUT devices allowing you to load 32 independent 17 side cubes, 16 per channel. Additionally, when using BoxIO for 4K over Dual 3Gbps SDI a 33 side cube can be used. The free BoxIO utility allows you to switch between these modes and stored LUTs very quickly.

Store 16 different 3D LUTs per Channel

BoxIO also supports 10 and 12 bit 1D LUTs in combination with any active 3D LUTs. 1D LUTs can be enabled both before and after the 3D LUT.

Compatible with Pomfort's LiveGrade Pro from Day 1

BoxIO is supported in Pomfort's LiveGrade Pro as of today's official release (version 3.5.1). Single-channel operation and reference frame capture are both enabled in this release. LiveGrade Pro will support dual-channel use in the near future. This dual-channel use will be showcased in beta at FSI's CineGear Expo booth in Hollywood later this week. Dual-channel operation in LiveGrade Pro will support both realtime LUT manipulation and frame capture with each channel addressable as a separate LUT device.

Flexible Power Options

BoxIO is equipped with a 4pin mini-XLR connector for a secure locking power connection and comes standard with a 100~240V power supply for use with AC power. For those that want to power from a battery an optional D-Tap to 4pin mini-XLR power cable is now available from ShopFSI.com.

BoxIO for Calibration

BoxIO already supports 17 side and 33 side cubes generated by LightIllusion's LightSpace CMS and SpectraCal's CalMAN. Simply save as .cube and load to BoxIO using the BoxIO Utility to enable your LUT.

Much More to Come

Test patch support and additional advanced features are also under development and will be announced as they are introduced.

California's Avical Now Offering In-Lab Services

Flanders Scientific offers many calibration solutions ranging from SpectraCal and LightIllusion calibration kits to the option of sending your monitor to FSI for calibration (you just pay freight). Another popular option is to hire a professional local calibration company and that is why we are happy to pass along this news from a long trusted calibration resource in Southern California.

Avical is now offering in lab calibration services for a fee out of their new Burbank office. More affordable than having someone come on site and a great option for those that rather drop off a display locally for quick and accurate calibration.

Special introductory pricing is available through July 31st for Flanders Scientific customers. Contact Avical for more information:

Image Flip: low latency vertical, horizontal, and horizontal plus vertical image flip!

Introducing BoxIO

FSI's Advanced Color Management Device

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

BoxIO is not just another LUT Box. It has unique capabilities including:

Simultaneous support of 3D and 1D LUTs

Ability to operate in dual channel mode making BoxIO 2 LUT boxes in 1 device

Ethernet, USB, and WiFi connectivity

12bit support across all inputs and outputs

Clean loop throughs so BoxIO is not relegated to being an end of chain device

Real-time LUT update capability for use with on set grading applications

Frame capture support allowing select applications to grab thumbnails or reference stills directly from BoxIO

Calibration with BoxIO

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

Specially priced versions of both SpectraCal's CalMAN and LightIllusion's LightSpace CMS are available.

On Set Grading and Frame Capture

BoxIO supports real-time LUT updates over IP allowing for direct integration with popular on set color management tools like Pomfort's LiveGrade Pro. BoxIO also supports frame capture over IP allowing select applications to use this feature to generate thumbnails and/or reference stills for later use.

Connectivity

2 x 12bit 3Gbps SDI inputs

2 x 12bit 3Gbps SDI outputs

1 x 12bit Mini-DP output (HDMI and DVI compatible)

2 x 12bit 3Gbps SDI clean loop throughs

LAN, USB, and WiFI communication

4pin Mini-XLR power connection

Two LUT Boxes In One

BoxIO can operate in a single or dual channel mode. In single channel mode you can apply a LUT to either the SDI 1 or SDI 2 input and then output the processed signal on the two SDI outputs and DP output all at the same time.

Single Channel Mode

In dual channel mode you can apply two separate LUTs on two independent inputs. This essentially makes the BoxIO two LUT devices in a single box.

Dual Channel Mode

BoxIO costs $1,195 and is expected to start shipping in May. Learn more more here or pre-order directly at ShopFSI.com.

The Fine Print

This gear is new when it is sent to NAB. It will of course be used when it gets back, but FSI will clean and inspect every unit before sending it on to the new owner. Units come with a full 2 year warranty, just like new equipment. You will be charged when you order and we cannot hold or otherwise reserve a unit without full payment. Items are strictly available on a first come first served basis and we typically sell out of most Floor Models well before NAB actually starts.

NAB runs from April 18th through April 21st. To allow time for the units to return to our office and to be properly cleaned and inspected before being shipped to you we estimate a ship out date (from Atlanta) between May 2nd and May 6th. While we will do our best to expedite all Floor Model shipments please DO NOT order a Floor Model if you need a guaranteed ship out date earlier than May 6th.

As we did last year we will not limit the number of Floor Models any one company or person can order, but all multi-piece Floor Model orders are final. Open to customers in North America only.

BoxIO

The Flanders Scientific BoxIO is an advanced color management device that supports both 3D and 1D LUTs for post-production and production applications. It is equipped with 2 x 3Gbps SDI inputs, 2 x 3Gbps SDI outputs, and a DisplayPort output compatible with HDMI and DVI devices. The BoxIO supports real-time LUT updates for on set grading applications and can be connected via Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or USB.

The BoxIO was specifically designed to overcome some of the shortcomings of typical 3D LUT boxes by offering the following key enhancements:

12bit SDI input support

12bit SDI and DisplayPort output

2 additional clean SDI loop throughs so the BoxIO is not limited to being an end of chain device

Both 3D and 1D LUT support

Support for 33x33x33 and 17x17x17 size 3D LUTs

Official pricing and release date are still to be determined, but an early preview of the BoxIO will be available at Broadcast Video Expo in London February 23rd – 25th.

BVE B-Stock Available

LiveGrade Pro Integration is Here

09.08.2015

Pomfort has just released the latest version of their on set look creation and management software: LiveGrade Pro 3. This update adds the ability to communicate directly with the recently introduced DM250 OLED monitor from Flanders Scientific for realtime, interactive look creation without the need for a standalone LUT box.

Easy & Flexible IP Based Connectivity

For single monitor setups you can connect a DM250 directly to your computer's ethernet port, no router required.

For multiple monitor setups you can connect several DM250 to a router. With both DHCP and static IP support, connectivity is both easy and flexible.

Highly Customizable Look Distribution

Mirror changes across multiple monitors or control monitors independently. Configurable slot assignments in LiveGrade allow you to group displays as needed.

Use the DM250's monitor output to mirror onscreen changes in realtime on a 3G/HD-SDI output from the display.

You can even use the DM250 in combination with CFE2 equipped FSI monitors, including all current BM and CM series, to apply completed looks as static LUTs on these lower cost units.

Introductory Offer, save $50 on LiveGrade Pro

For a limited time Flanders Scientific is offering 1 year licenses of LiveGrade Pro 3 for just $449 (normally $499). Take advantage of this offer at ShopFSI.com.

LiveGrade Air, iOS Based Look Creation

Pomfort's professional look creation app for iPhone and iPad is also compatible with the DM250. Learn more about LiveGrade Air at Pomfort.com

See us this weekend at IBC in Amsterdam. We will be showcasing the new DM250, LiveGrade Pro Integration, and much more.

Two New LUT Conversion Options, both FREE!

Flanders Scientific monitors use a custom .dat format for on monitor storage of "DIT LUTs" as this format allows for fast application of, and rapid switching between, various look and technical LUTs in production environments. There are several paid LUT conversion options that work quite well at converting to .dat including Lattice and LightSpace CMS. However, the full version of these applications do much more than most users need so today we are excited to announce two completely free LUT conversion options.

For Mac OS

The Flanders Scientific LUT Converter is a new Mac OS application that will import .cube files exported from Resolve and convert them to .dat. You can learn more and download this program for free here.

For Windows

3 day licenses for LightSpace FSI LUTs are now free when you request a license here. In addition to being Windows based, LightSpace FSI LUTs also provides you with the ability to convert from any LightSpace supported format, not just .cube, into FSI's .dat format.

Tangent Control Surfaces Now Available through Flanders Scientific

Need a control surface for LiveGrade Pro or your favorite color grading application? Flanders Scientific now carries Tangent control surfaces including the popular Tangent Element. Learn more at ShopFSI.com

The Official Launch of FSI's European Online Store is Here!

07.10.2015

Flanders Scientific is pleased to announce the launch of ShopFSI.eu, an online store built specifically to serve customers throughout Europe.

Flanders Scientific's CEO & General Manager, Bram Desmet, had this to say about the new European online store:

"In October of 2012 FSI opened a European Service and Support center to better serve customers throughout Europe, continuing FSI's commitment to leading growth with exceptional service and support. In February of 2014 we took the next step in our European operations strategy and began accepting and processing orders directly through this European office. While this did facilitate simpler and more transparent ordering of FSI products within Europe it became clear to us over the last year that there was a growing need for a European equivalent to our streamlined and popular global online store ShopFSI.com. Today we are happy to meet that need with the official launch of ShopFSI.eu"

ShopFSI.eu serves Europe, Russia, and Turkey. Customers outside of these territories should continue to utilize Flanders Scientific's U.S. based global site ShopFSI.com.

Slightly Larger BM240 Replaces the BM230

Flanders Scientific is releasing a new monitor today to replace the outgoing 23" BM230: the 23.8" BM240 broadcast LCD monitor. The BM240 is ideally suited for editorial, engineering, and on set monitoring applications thanks to its extensive feature set and broad signal support capabilities. Learn more about the BM240 here.

See us this week at the SMPTE 2015 Conference and Exhibition in Sydney, Australia. We'll have the latest Flanders Scientific and FSI Solutions equipment on display at Stand A-02.

5 Exciting New Monitor Models to Debut @ NAB 2015

04.06.2015

Flanders Scientific is excited to announce 5 additions to its growing monitor lineup. Visit FSI at NAB, booth SL10805, to see these and other great new products on display.

DM250, Quite Possibly the World's Most Advanced Professional OLED Monitor

The DM250 is Flanders Scientific's most advanced monitor to date with everything you've come to expect from Flanders Scientific plus several unique new hardware supported capabilities:

CFE3 Color Management with realtime look LUT update support. Connect on set color grading applications, like Pomfort's LiveGrade, directly to the monitor for realtime color manipulation without a standalone LUT box!

2nd Screen Output connections allow you to output what you see on screen to downstream devices. This includes useful features like anamorphic de-squeeze, markers, time code, and active LUTs. These outputs are in addition to the standard loop-throughs, allowing simultaneous output of clean and manipulated images.

A LUT can also be applied to the 2nd screen outputs independently of what is seen on screen allowing the DM250 to serve as a LUT box for calibration of a connected downstream monitor.

The DM250 features a new Zero-Delay Processing Mode. When activated this mode allows for latency-free monitoring. This instantaneous video processing speed makes the DM250 an ideal choice for on set, studio, and post applications that require completely delay-free monitoring.

The DM250 is the first Flanders Scientific monitor to come equipped with Cross Conversion capability. This feature allows you to take DisplayPort / HDMI / DVI signals and convert them to SDI for output.

$7,995. Starts shipping in May of 2015.

The New AM Series: Capable & Affordable

A frequent request made to FSI over the years has been to build a series of monitors that remove advanced features to reduce cost, but still come equipped with professional inputs and proper calibration. The AM series provides this affordable accuracy, but instead of removing all advanced capabilities Flanders Scientific has retained those features and functions that don't have a significant impact on manufacturing cost. The result is an extremely capable series of affordable broadcast monitors. See how our AM, BM, CM, and DM series compare on our Comparison page.

Professional-Level Do-It-Yourself Calibration Just Became Much More Affordable

01.23.2015

We go to great lengths to deliver well calibrated monitors to all of our customers, but like all displays FSI monitors will benefit from regular recalibration over time. It is for this reason that we offer our free recalibration service at both our European and US offices. However, the expense and downtime of shipping units back and forth has long made third party do-it-yourself calibration software an attractive option. An in-house calibration solution also provides you with an unparalleled level of confidence in your display's setup as you can check and recalibrate as often as needed without guessing as to how much a display has drifted over time. This confidence factor alone makes a color management solution a wise investment, but the problem in the past has always been the high cost of entry for truly professional grade calibration options. That's why we are excited to announce several new professional-level calibration options for FSI Monitors that greatly reduce this cost related barrier of entry to accurate in-house calibration.

Industry leaders LightIllusion and SpectraCal have both already offered FSI compatible calibration solutions for several years. Now FSI has negotiated special offers on FSI specific releases of these respective solutions at greatly reduced prices to place flexible, affordable, and accurate in-house calibration solutions within reach for all of our clients. Click on any of the items below to learn more about these great new solutions available exclusively through Flanders Scientific.
