When Media ASYLUM was launched in 2012, one of its’ main objective was to work with trainers and organisations who would be able to offer a high standard of training to production and post production professionals in Singapore.
With that objective in mind, the first partnership we established was with Australian colorist Warren Eagles and the International Colorist Academy (ICA). Warren is a founding member of the ICA, along with fellow colorist Kevin Shaw, who is based in London.
As Warren recalls, “The ICA has partnered with Media Asylum since we founded the company in 2009. The Media ASYLUM training room is fantastic! The set up and equipment are second to none and provide for a great learning experience. Student lunches and after class visits to local post houses really compliment the training.”
Together with several other experienced colorists and post production veterans, the ICA delivers regular hands-on colorist and post production related training courses in Los Angeles, New York, London, Sydney and in Singapore, through its’ partnership with Media ASYLUM.
The latest version of the FSI IP Remote utility is now available for DM series monitor and BoxIO users. It features enhanced functionality that allows you to easily resize ScopeStream windows and adjust scope trace color.
Flanders Scientific has announced that the upcoming XM550U will become the XM650U!
Why the name change? Because this large format monitor will be released with a bigger, better, and brighter OLED panel than previewed on our early 55” prototypes. This means you’ll get over 38% more screen area while also benefiting from key performance improvements across the board. Learn more about the XM650U at FlandersScientific.com
All new FSI monitors now support 47.95, 48, 50, 59.94, and 60P 2K signals. These are standardized signal formats users may encounter, but are often unsupported on other display devices. These additional frame rates are in addition to previously supported 2K formats making FSI monitors some of the most robust in terms of 2K signal support. Read More
The IP Remote Utility provides useful toggles and controls for management of your AM, BM, CM, and DM series monitors as well as BoxIO units.
Quickly change operation mode and channel settings, load LUTs to BoxIO to toggle On & Off quickly, Update Firmware, Manage BoxIO IP addresses and WiFi settings, and capture frames at full resolution that can be saved instantly as a .JPG, .BMP, or BoxIO .RAW image.
Many features require the use of BoxIO Firmware 1.51 or newer. You can find updated firmware here.
Control AM, BM, CM, and DM series function keys, menu keys, and quickly switch inputs.
On DM series monitors, capture frames at full resolution that can be saved instantly as a .JPG, .BMP, or BoxIO .RAW image.
The world’s first real-time Waveform and Vectorscope transmitted directly from your BoxIO or DM series monitor to your computer with no additional equipment needed. Simply connect your DM series monitor and computer to the same network and use the IP Remote Utility.
The DM series monitors have seen some great new features added to them, including Customizable Multi-Color Waveform and 3rd Generation Focus Assist.
Can’t make it to IBC? You can find videos highlighting these functions and other popular features such as PAP and Adjustable LUM Coloring at FSI’s Vlog page at FlandersScientific.com/vlog/.
Here’s an example, showcasing one of the latest features, Side-by-Side Monitoring Overview. FSI’s unique live side-by-side monitoring feature allows for mixed formats, mixed frame rates, and even mixed input types to be viewed together in PAP, PIP, or POP configurations.

The ScopeStream beta for BoxIO was released 2 weeks ago and FSI is pleased to follow that today with the public beta of ScopeStream for DM series monitors.
DM170, DM240, and DM250 monitor owners can now stream real-time Waveform and Vectorscope from their monitor to any connected Mac or PC. A highlight of ScopeStream is that video analysis happens on the display itself so scopes run as a low-load operation only requiring the computer to draw out the scope trace data being sent back.
“Many monitors offer built-in Waveform and Vectorscope, but showing these typically requires overlaying your reference image or clunky solutions like scaling your image to a non-native size to make room for scopes. Standalone scopes can be a great alternative, but these can be costly and for production environments mean transporting yet another piece of equipment. ScopeStream aims to address these challenges by allowing real-time Waveform and Vectorscope to be monitored on any connected computer without the need for additional equipment or expense.”
BoxIO’s new ScopeStream capability, first announced at NAB 2017, is now available as part of a public beta release of the updated BoxIO Utility application and BoxIO firmware.
The updated utility allows multiple BoxIO devices to be connected, each supporting its own real-time Waveform and/or VectorScope stream.
We characterize BoxIO as an Advanced Color Management device because it is more than just a LUT box and ScopeStream is another great illustration of that point. With a single device you can apply LUTs in real-time, take full resolution frame grabs, view waveform and vector scope, and a whole lot more. Best of all, you get all of these capabilities for a price that is comparable to devices that do little more than just apply a LUT.
