Colour Calibration – tools and services Talk to the experts!
At Big Pic Media we know colour. We represented the first brand of monitor to include auto calibration and 3D LUT (Look Up Table) colour management – the ground breaking Cinemage (TM) from Cine-tal – and we currently represent several manufacturers whose colour management credentials are second to none – Pandora, THX’s cineSpace, X-Rite, Klein, SpectraCal and BlackMagic. We have also successfully offered our calibration services to dozens of satisfied facilities around the UK and Europe and held popular and well liked colour management training courses.
The Klein Instruments K10-A Colorimeter is fast and accurate even down into extremely low light levels and, for professional performance, its price is hard to beat – the image (r) shows the K10-A colour filter response v’s the accepted human eye CIE model
The X-Rite i1Display Pro is a cost effective probe that is ideal for maintaining the colorimetry of facilities on a budget.
THX cineSpace – the first calibration system designed specifically for broadcast and film professionals. It works with film and scanning processes, monitors and projectors and can be integrated into many of the industry’s top colour grading systems. It generates calibration matching LUTs (1D or 3D) for inclusion into most commercially available LUT boxes and displays and provides simple visualisations to demonstrate exactly where you are – and where you want to be!
SpectraCal CalMAN Studio – cost effective, accurate and complete. It profiles displays and generates 1D or 3D calibration matching LUTs for use in many LUT boxes and displays.
Pandora’s Pluto range of 1D/3D LUT boxes integrate seamlessly into a calibration or on-set look management system, generating colour patches and hosting up to 16 x 1D-3D-1D LUT chains (per channel) of calibration and look management LUTs. Used standalone, they fully support the CDL (Colour Decision List) system either via a GUI (see left) or a simple trackball/mouse or they can integrate with Pomfort LiveGrade Pro for live, on-set colour management. Use Pluto with cineSpace, Lightspace or calMAN for the simplest automation of your calibration processing.
BlackMagic’s HD Decklink Pro is a cost effective 3D LUT box that we recommend and supply for simple broadcast (REC709) calibration and driving displays with HDMI/SDI inputs up to 10 bits (1.07B colours)

Call us for a discussion!
We have organised and run multiple colour management training courses in London, with a high degree of client satisfaction. We also offer a high level of training and support to our product customers and many of our calibration service customers are given instruction in maintaining their own facility-wide colour management systems if they wish.
We represent display manufacturers of diverse technologies :–
Plasma (Panasonic) Projectors (Projection Design)
We understand each of these technologies – their strengths and weaknesses – and we pride ourselves on giving impartial advice with no “hard sell”. We have given educational lectures on the fundamentals of display technology to various groups of DoP’s and colourists at trade shows and seminars in London, Munich, Copenhagen and Los Angeles.
