What Is Livegrade Pro?
Livegrade Pro is the state-of-the-art software solution that addresses all digital-imaging-related requirements of the camera department. It helps you to:
- Achieve desired high-quality images out of every scene by giving the DP immediacy to image control and by removing all barriers to artistic image experimentation
- React quickly to the DP’s changes to the stage floor by visualizing and adjusting to the iterations of production settings, camera systems, and lighting conditions
- Let the team make more informed creative decisions by evaluating the scenes in a richer context with responsive real-time looks and instant access to reference material
- Vitalize the entire production process by accelerating the dailies grading process and significantly shortening the review cycles
Support Image Composition
Control live images via vectorscopes and waveform, keep a constant eye on quality, and make color adjustments on your images as necessary. Being closer to the desired final look already on set ensures that footage looks precisely the way it was intended.
Capturing and reviewing reference material and frame grabs from camera live images helps to ensure consistency across your project from scene-to-scene. Being consistent in different production settings or from lens-to-lens increases the overall quality of the footage.
Create Camera Log
Monitor live camera metadata embedded in the HD-Signal signal and store them in the shot library together with the preview image. The visual and technical information generates objective and trusted insights about the connected cameras and their live images.
Interactive Color Grading
Tailored to the Film Set.
Color grading multiple camera live signals requires dedicated concepts for the grading application. On set, there is not much time for anything, so controls must be spot on, reduced to the necessary, and highly accessible.
Livegrade offers multiple grading “slots” to allow independent grading of multiple cameras. Each slot independently features expressive primary grading controls (e.g., ASC-CDL based) for basic color adjustments, as well as additional secondary grading controls (e.g., “versus-curves”) for special situations.
Livegrade offers a flexible color management platform with “grading modes” ranging from basic CDL-and-LUT workflows to dedicated ACES-based pipelines.
Livegrade and Silverstack offered us the way to easily create and share references and manage different versions of the same look during the shooting day.
DITs Andrea Cuomo and Andrea Curiazi on Live Grading “ZeroZeroZero”
The TV series ZeroZeroZero is a saga about drug trafficking that spans several continents. A production like this requires a high amount of traveling and cooperation between people from different countries. Italian DITs Andrea Cuomo and Andrea Curiazi have been part of this production in 2019 and report to us their experiences.Read whole story...

Choose Your Hardware and Setup
Stay Flexible With a Wide Range of Devices.
Hardware-Based Color Grading on Set
Livegrade Pro controls image processing in dedicated hardware. Handing over processing to external devices enables robust video setups that scale very well, even for larger sets.
For unified HD, UHD/4K, and HDR workflows Livegrade supports LUT box devices such as FSI BoxIO, Teradek COLR, AJA FS-HDR, or TVLogic IS-mini, as well as cameras and monitors with processing capabilities from ARRI, Canon, Panasonic, RED, and Sony.
Grading Panel, Knobs, and Buttons
Physical controls are a huge productivity advantage. Direct access to regularly used functions builds “muscle memory” that heavily speeds up the interaction with the entire DIT system.
Livegrade Pro supports grading panel controllers from Tangent, including custom knob mappings. Livegrade also comes with a plugin for the display buttons of Elgato Stream Deck. And with support for MIDI controllers, you can use or even build your very own button and knob interface.
Capturing Still and Video References
Livegrade Pro supports AJA T-TAP, AJA Io, and AJA KONA devices, as well as Blackmagic Design Ultrastudio, Mini Recorder, and Decklink devices and cards for capturing reference images from HD-SDI live signals, extracting and displaying live camera metadata (from ANC), and for the recording of multiple cameras.
Also, other devices such as BoxIO and Alexa Mini via CAP can provide reference still images for a smaller setup where no video recording is required.
