FUJIFILM RELEASES NEW IS-MINI MANAGER PLUS+ SOFTWARE WITH ENHANCED COLOR CORRECTION
New software adds multiple features for motion picture and broadcast use
VALHALLA, N.Y., January 12, 2015 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation has released a significantly enhanced version of the Mini Manager software - IS-mini Manager PLUS+ - for control and use of its highly popular IS-mini digital color adjustment device. The software is available free of charge to any IS-mini user 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 2.3.3 now adds several powerful features to the user-friendly interface that bring post-house color correction abilities to any on-set professional or home user on a personal computer. Several features require activation of the IS-mini Manager PLUS+ license (a $500 value), which is being offered free of charge to any IS-mini user until April 1, 2015. 4K monitor calibration is made possible through multiple IS-mini units feeding 4 inputs.
Multiple IS-minis, connected by way of a USB hub, can be accessed from within the main screen of Mini Manager 2.3.3, 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. Crucially, during color correction, Mini Manager will now cascade the monitor calibration correction enabling precise grading even with low-end monitors. Newly added is time code logging to save looks for future color grading. The 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. In addition, Mini Manager PLUS has the capability of importing and exporting LUTS from many different color corrector format types allowing simple exchange of looks between on-set and post-house. For digital imaging technicians and colorists, the new Tone Curve tool and special 12-vector color manipulation functions will be a huge benefit for creating and refining the cinematographer’s intentions. The enhanced color measurement tool in the monitor calibration section now features automatic gray scale and RGB measurements for demanding color professionals.
