FUJIFILM RELEASES MAJOR SOFTWARE UPGRADE FOR IS-MINI
New software adds multiple features for motion picture and broadcast use
VALHALLA, N.Y., August 5, 2014 – Adding to its acclaimed Image Processing System line up, FUJIFILM North America Corporation has released a significantly enhanced version of the Mini-Manager software for control and use of its highly popular IS-mini digital color adjustment device. The software is available free of charge to anyone at: http://www.fujifilm.com/support/image_processing/
The IS-mini is a small hardware device that takes an incoming HD-SDI digital camera moving picture image and converts the color information via two sets of 1D LUTs and 3D LUTs to outputs of both HD-SDI and HDMI connections – all in record time while still delivering high picture quality. The newly improved Mini Manager Version 2.1 now has a more user-friendly interface that adds color correction functions, as well as new monitor measurement functions and controls for accurate monitor calibrations. 4K monitor calibration is made possible through multiple IS-mini units feeding 4 inputs. Another new feature that answers the needs of digital imaging technicians and post-house professionals is a color patch measurement tool that works with commonly available monitor probes.
Multiple IS-minis, connected by way of a USB hub, can now be accessed from within the main screen of Mini Manager 2.1, and also within the color correction window. During color correction, the changes can be immediately sent to only one IS-mini, or to all the connected units in unison. A new powerful web-based LUT browsing tool allows the user to access many hundreds of ACES-based camera LUTs from Fujifilm, including many with negative and positive film stock emulations. These LUTs are for use with every popular motion picture and television production camera currently available, and will be updated as new models come to market. By using Fujifilm created IDTs, the color reproduction of different camera types can be matched ideally. The use of ACES-based IDTs also allows Look and Rendering transforms to be shared commonly among many cameras.
The Fujifilm IS-mini also continues to be compatible with Pomfort’s Live Grade Pro grading software, allowing digital imaging technicians and cinematographers to achieve full control of live HD-SDI signals from digital cameras by way of this commonly available application.
The Fujifilm IS Mini Manager software Version 2.1 is available immediately.
