SDI & mini-DisplayPort LUT Box

Light Illusion is delighted to be a global distributor for the Flanders Scientific BoxIO LUT box.



The FSI BoxIO LUT box supports both 3D and 1D LUTs for accurate display calibration when used in conjunction with LightSpace CMS, as well as on-set Look Management.

The BoxIO LUT box is a SDI input and SDI/mini Displayport output device, compatible with HDMI and DVI devices using an inexpensive passive connector. It is ideal for use with any SDI image workflow path, with SDI or DP/HDMI/DVI display input requirements, making it a perfect for professional operations where precise colour and 'Look' management is required.

The addition of clean loop through SDI outputs mean BoxIO isn't limited to being an 'end of chain' device.

Connections include SDI in, DP and SDI out, and Ethernet/WiFi for LUT uploading.

The silent, fan-less all aluminum design is durable, quiet, and built for 24/7 operation.

LUT Processing

BoxIO uses a pipeline of 3 LUTs, one after another, using an input 1D LUT, followed by a 3D LUTs, with a output 1D LUT at the end of the processing chain.

Input 1D LUT 3D LUT Output 1D LUT
Input LUT 3D LUT Output LUT
The first (input) 1D LUT can be used as a Shaper LUT, or in combination with the 3D LUT for display calibration, with the 1D LUT containing the Gamma and Grey Scale calibration, and the 3D LUT containing the Gamut calibration information. The 3D LUT can be used in isolation, or in combination with the Input 1D LUT for display calibration. LightSpace CMS can be set to upload the combined LUTs, or separately. The back-end (Output) 1D LUT can be used for pre-calibration of display Gamma and Grey Scale, correcting gross differences, before the application of the Input 1D + 3D LUT combination.

Single-Channel Mode

BoxIO (all versions) can operate in a single-channel mode with a switched input. This allows a single-channel at a time to be outputted on the two processed SDI outputs so that your signal can be distributed to two locations from a single BoxIO. In single-channel mode BoxIO supports 33^3 3D LUTs, and up to 16 LUTs can be stored within BoxIO in Single Channel mode, sandwiched between input and output 1D LUTs.



Dual-Channel Mode

Depending on the version in use, BoxIO can apply two separate LUTs to two independent signals at the same time, essentially operating as two LUT boxes in a single device. In dual-channel mode each channel supports 17^3 size 3D LUTs, and up to 32 individual LUTs can be stored within BoxIO in single Channel mode, sandwiched between input and output 1D LUTs.


Depending on the version in use, BoxIO can also apply 2 different LUTs (input 1D, 3D, & output 1D combinations) to one input in dual-channel mode.



Channel Stacking Mode

Depending on the version in use, BoxIO can use Internal Channel Stacking in dual-channel mode, allowing users to select Channel 2's output as the input for Channel 1. This capability has many potential applications including the ability to use a single device for both calibration and real-time look LUTs.

Use a single device for simultaneous use of Calibration and Look LUTs without having to rely on LUT concatenation while supporting both 3D LUTs and input & output 1D LUTs at each step in the signal processing chain.
