Global monitor specialist EIZO Limited is pleased to announce its collaboration with industry leading display calibration software manufacturer Light Illusion. The manufacturers have successfully fully integrated Light Illusions LightSpace CMS calibration system into EIZO ColorEdge monitors, providing unparallel display calibration capability for colour critical application, with the addition of in-built LUT Management making the combination of EIZO and LightSpace CMS ideal for on-set Look workflows.
Steve Shaw, CEO of Light Illusion is delighted by EIZO’s adoption of LightSpace CMS. “In discussion with EIZO we suggested how LightSpace CMS could assist with both the calibration of their monitors as well as providing advanced LUT manipulation tools, and it has been extremely satisfying to see the results bear this out.”

Our production partner in Hong Kong, Expedition and Production Management (EPM) Asia Ltd, run and owned by explorer and remote location producer Steven Ballantyne, has just completed a fabulous new series for Tigress Productions:”Naked and Marooned with Ed Stafford” which is being aired on Discovery.
“From initially scouting and securing ‘The Island’ through to managing the production on location for the entire 60 day shoot was a unique and fascinating experience – maintaining the integrity of this ground breaking production was of utmost importance, ensuring Ed was left totally alone and without any external support for 60 days, although utterly exhausting being on 24 call for 60 days it was tremendously rewarding to have been apart of this fascinating production by Tigress Productions for Discovery UK.”
A full article of Steven’s work is going out on Location Guide soon too, so keep your eyes peeled.
