Filmlight improves BaseLight with Blackboard 2 control surface

LAS VEGAS — FilmLight ( has a new control surface for its Baselight color grading system at this year’s NAB show. Blackboard 2 represents a new concept in control surfaces, with each key being soft programmable. The keys are labeled via back projection and can change based on the designated function they are set to perform. Additionally, the control surface includes a series of configurable controls that allow users to perform certain functions in a more intuitive and tactile manner. Blackboard 2 also features four high-resolution screens that provide the user with live, in-context feedback.

FilmLight plans to begin shipping Blackboard 2 in the summer and will continue to manufacture and market the original Blackboard, which acts as a hard-key control surface. Colorists familiar with the original Blackboard will feel at home with Blackboard 2.
