North light

FilmLight Limited is a digital cinema technology company started in 2002 by the Scientific and Technical Academy Award-winning former Computer Film Company R&D team.

Their main products are:

  • Northlight film scanner, a motion picture film scanner capable of scanning 16, 35 or 65┬ámm film formats. It is commonly used for feature film effects and digital intermediate.
  • Baselight film color grading system.
  • Truelight color management system.

These products aim to solve specific needs of the film post production industry. The Baselight system needs to work with high-bandwidth uncompressed data while providing real-time performance. In color management, solutions for the print and graphic design industries do not necessarily work since working with digitized film requires real-time performance for 24 images per second. This is accomplished through the use of 3D look-up-tables.
