Flanders Scientific Introduces Live Grading Tool, BoxIO, Along with a New Monitor
Flanders Scientific is known for having the highest fidelity coloring peripherals on the market, which is why they've expanded to offer the BoxIO.
BoxIO is a completely new product category from the premium monitor manufacturer that allows DITs or colorists to downstream a live color grade made on set. With the flagship 2 SDI-In 2 SDI-Out BoxIO ($1195), a DIT could output different looks to two different sources.
To put this into perspective, imagine the director wants to see the image in Rec709 while the cinematographer wants to check exposure, or the AC needs more contrast and the client demands the final look. Or perhaps everybody wants to see if the shadows were bluer and the skin tones softer. Now it can be done on-set while you're shooting.
The BoxIO Lite ($975) reduces the number of in/out SDI ports to 1 while the BoxIO Lite DP ($895) takes 1 SDI-In and only has 1 DisplayPort Out.
Flanders Scientific also showed off a little brother to their 24.5" DM250 ($7995) monitor with the 17" DM170 ($3695), a smaller monitor for colorists and DITs desiring the highest production quality.
