Advanced Color Management
BoxIO Lite SDI is an advanced color management device designed for both color critical post production environments and demanding on set color management applications.
BoxIO Lite SDI supports both 3D and 1D LUTs for unparalleled image control. BoxIO Lite SDI can be used for calibration, on set grading, and other LUT based operations.
Have a display that doesn't offer built-in 3D LUT based calibration? BoxIO interfaces directly with the industry's leading calibration software solutions for simple and accurate 3D LUT based display alignment.
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.
Test Patch Generation
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.
Upload LUTs generated from LightSpace CMS and CalMAN software directly to BoxIO without exiting or running additional programs.
On Set Grading
BoxIO 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.
LiveGrade Pro 4.1 has the ability to read camera metadata from SDI signals connected to BoxIO. Compatible with ARRI, Panasonic, and Sony cameras.
BoxIO supports frame capture over IP allowing select applications including FSI’s BoxIO Utility to grab reference still frames from incoming video signals.
Frames captured in BoxIO's own .RAW format can be displayed using Frame Callback. This feature has many potential uses including review of reference stills in on set environments, display of complex test patterns, and preview of new looks on previously captured content. Frames can be loaded quickly from a connected computer or directly from 16 available memory slots on BoxIO for even faster frame recall.
IP Remote Utility
The IP Remote Utility provides useful toggles and controls for management of your BoxIO and can be used in conjunction with other applications from FSI’s software partners.
Quickly change mode and channel settings, load LUTs to BoxIO, toggle LUTs on and off instantly, update, manage BoxIO IP and WiFi settings, and capture frames at full resolution that can be saved instantly as a .JPG or .BMP
Waveform and Vectorscope transmitted directly from your BoxIO to your computer with no additional equipment needed. Simply connect your BoxIO and computer to the same network and use the IP Remote Utility.
- BoxIO Lite SDI comes equipped with 1 x 3Gbps SDI input, 1 x clean SDI loop through, and 2 processed SDI outputs.
- Clean loop through SDI output mean BoxIO Lite SDI isn't limited to being an "end of chain" device.
- All inputs and outputs offer full 12bit signal support.
- Communicate with external devices over LAN, and WiFi.
- BoxIO Lite SDI features a 4pin mini-xlr connector supporting 12V to 18V power and draws less than 10W of power.
BoxIO Lite SDI can operate in a single-channel mode. This allows a LUT to be applied on both processed SDI outputs so that your signal can be distributed to multiple locations from a single BoxIO. In single-channel mode BoxIO supports 33x33x33 size 3D LUTs.
Two LUT Boxes In One.
BoxIO Lite SDI can apply two separate LUTs to a signal at the same time essentially operating as two LUT boxes in a single device. In dual-channel mode each channel supports 17x17x17 size 3D LUTs.
Store up to 16 33x33x33 size 3D LUTs and easily toggle between them.
Store up to 32 individual 17x17x17 size 3D LUTs (16 per channel) and easily toggle between them.
Advanced LUT Processing Options
BoxIO has the unique ability to process 3D LUTs using your choice of trilinear or tetrahedral interpolation. Trilinear LUT interpolation is very common and having this option allows you to process LUTs as they will frequently be seen elsewhere. More advanced tetrahedral LUT interpolation, while not as ubiquitous, allows for a much higher degree of precision with better visual performance.
An effective way to understand the performance benefits of tetrahedral LUT interpolation is to compare the necessary average 3D LUT size for equivalent performance using each interpolation method.
|Average 3D LUT Performance Equivalency Between Interpolation Methods|
|3D LUT Size||17x17x17||22x22x22 would be required|
|33x33x33||43x43x43 would be required|

If the bundle discount (or gift value) exceeds the value of the returned item, the difference must be paid to be able to return the item.
If you would like to return any item(s), please contact us by either emailing email@example.com or calling (+372) 5556 0057. We will share with you a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) code and ask that you clearly mark this code outside of your shipping box as you ship your item(s) back for a refund.
You will be liable for the shipping and any applicable customs/duty fees returning the item(s).
If the return is made due to a faulty product, or an incorrectly shipped product, or if you are returning the item(s) due to a defect, or functionality issue, or because it is not the item you have ordered, we will gladly email or mail a return shipping label covering all shipping related expenses.

Returned merchandise must be in its original packaging, and placed in a decent shipping box, e.g. the same box that we shipped the items to you in. Please make sure to clearly mark the RMA code you have received from us outside on the box.
Do not forget to cover or peel off any existing shipping labels on the box.
DIT Supplies OÜ cannot be held accountable for return shipments that have not reached us or returns made without RMA codes. We strongly advise that if you are returning the item(s) with a carrier of your choice that you use a traceable shipping method.

Customs, duties & taxes
There are no customs duties or taxes on orders shipping within the EU. Orders shipped outside of the EU may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees collected by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are collected once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be paid for by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; and when customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. We advise that you contact your local customs office for more information.
