FilmLight launches Baselight grading system

FilmLight, pioneers of digital film technology, announced today the worldwide release of Baselight, its advanced digital film grading and finishing system.
Baselight is a third generation product, designed and developed within a production environment and used extensively on many high-end features films, including 'Cold Mountain', 'Love Actually', 'Thunderbirds', 'Bright Young Things' and the 'Harry Potter' series.
The Baselight system is a proven software product running under Linux on PC hardware. It is both scalable and affordable, supporting a collaborative workflow through a use of an open relational database. Baselight supports familiar control surfaces and is integrated with the FilmLight's Truelight colour management system ensuring colour accuracy. Baselight is resolution independent, expanding creativity and flexibility through the use of unlimited primary and secondary grades and multiple soft-edged, spline shapes.
Optical Art, based in Hamburg, is one of the leading feature film post facilities in Germany and they have been early adopters of Baselight. The company has integrated Baselight into its 'Digital Lab' as an alternative to a Specter System , recently having put it through its paces on a current German feature film.
Harald Lehmann, Managing Director, Optical Art comments; "The Baselight system is today's best answer for grading systems in the world. It offers a great alternative in terms of quality, flexibility, tools and price. We are convinced from using it in real-life productions and from the close relationship that we have with FilmLight support, that is the future for film technology."
Baselight is available now at an introductory price of 75,000 euros.
FilmLight was formed in 2002 by the technical R& D team from The Computer Film Company (CFC), in order to further the development of an integrated digital film mastering process to meet the needs of clients to provide high quality digital film scanning, grading and colour management techniques. The company has now installed its pioneering Northlight film scanning technology in companies such as Cinesite, ILM and LipSync.
