Pomfort PLG-PRO100 overview

  • 1Description

Bring color to your film set and dailies. Offering a lot of flexibility in working with looks in real-time, Pomfort LiveGrade Pro V3 allows you to apply LUTs to HD-SDI signals being sent from the camera to the on-set monitor -- either via LUT boxes or directly via compatible cameras. This will let you create, preview, and compare looks directly on set. The digital look becomes part of the image creation process on set -- together with camera setup, lighting, and the art department -- in order to follow one creative intent.

Using the collected look metadata in the dailies creation process ensures that the look concept of the DP and director is carried on to editorial and viewing. Therefore LiveGrade covers a wide range of color management workflows with comprehensive import and export capabilities. Color correction settings can be annotated with metadata (e.g slate information) and exported as standard look exchange files such ASC-CDL files or 3D LUTs. Together with LiveGrade's new PDF reports and ALE export, matching looks and camera source media for dailies creation is now simpler.

LiveGrade Pro supports grading modes that are specifically tailored to a broad range of workflows. Covering "log" material of specific digital cinema cameras, ASC-CDL grading, the Academy's "ACES" color space, and secondary grading options highly increase LiveGrade Pro's versatility as a color correction system for any project.

LiveGrade Pro combines the flexibility of live image manipulation with the traditional, file-based approach for color grading. The video input interface enables capturing multiple camera's live HD-SDI signals. Movie clips or single frames can be recorded as reference for creating new looks and for maintaining the consistency of an entire project's look. A new split-screen view makes the comparison of looks even more convenient and accurate.

LiveGrade Pro unifies the color creation workflow by supporting LUT box devices such as Blackmagic Design's HDLink or Fujifilm's IS-Mini, as well as cameras with color correction capabilities such as the Panasonic Varicam 35. (Fujifilm requires an additional device license file available within the LiveGrade Pro application.) You can use panel controllers from Tangent and Avid with LiveGrade Pro and control the software remotely via WiFi with the free LiveGrade Pro Remote app, which works with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. For capturing HD-SDI live signals, Blackmagic Design Ultrastudio, Mini Recorder, and Decklink cards are supported.
