BoxIO is a single device that can apply LUTs in real-time, take full resolution frame grabs, provide a waveform and vectorscope, and more.
Flanders Scientific’s BoxIO and its software interfaces directly with the industry’s leading calibration software solutions for simple and accurate 3D LUT based display alignment.
The Flanders Scientific new BoxIO ScopeStream capability, first announced at the 2017 NAB Show, is now available as part of a public beta release of the updated BoxIO Utility application and BoxIO firmware.
BoxIO is an advanced color management device designed for both color critical post production environments and demanding on set color management applications. It supports both 3D and 1D LUTs for unparalleled image control. BoxIO can be used for calibration, on set grading, and other LUT based operations.
It supports real-time LUT updates over IP allowing for direct integration with popular on set color management tools like Pomfort's LiveGrade Pro, QTAKE’s Grade module, Filmlight's Prelight, and FireFly Cinema's FireDay and FirePlay.
Specially priced versions of CalMAN and LightSpace for FSI are available. BoxIO will also work with fully licensed versions of CalMAN Studio and LightSpace CMS.
BoxIO is equipped with an integrated test pattern generator allowing for manual test patch generation from the BoxIO Utility or automated test pattern generation from calibration software like LightSpace or CalMAN*. Perform 3D LUT based calibration quickly and easily with BoxIO, a probe, and LightSpace or CalMAN.
BoxIO supports frame capture over IP allowing select applications including FSI’s BoxIO Utility to grab reference still frames from incoming video signals.
Waveform and Vectorscope transmitted directly from a BoxIO to a computer with no additional equipment necessary. Simply connect your BoxIO and computer to the same network and use the ScopeStream utility.
BoxIO comes equipped with 2 x 3Gbps SDI inputs, 2 x clean SDI loop throughs, 2 processed SDI outputs, and 1 mini-DisplayPort output. The mini-DisplayPort output mirrors the processed SDI output allowing for LUT application on mini-DisplayPort as well as SDI outputs. It can be used with consumer 4K and HDTVs using SDI to HDMI adapters such as the BMD Micro Converter for HD signal formats and the AJA HI5-4K for 4K signal formats. All inputs and outputs offer full 12bit signal support.
Clean loop through SDI outputs mean BoxIO isn't limited to being an "end of chain" device. Both clean and processed SDI outputs cleanly pass incoming ancillary data.
The updated utility allows multiple BoxIO devices to be connected, each supporting its own real-time Waveform and/or VectorScope stream.
