YoYotta will be showing the latest version of the YoYo postproduction workflow system at NAB 2011 in Las Vegas, April 11-14. Deployed around the world at top commercial post houses, including Framestore, The Mill, Smoke & Mirrors, Glassworks and many others, the YoYo software suite streamlines and automates file-based data management. This year YoYotta is introducing YoDailies, a new system for creating review reels. Visitors to NAB this year can see YoYo at the Cintel booth (SL1716), including a demo of YoYo archiving material and metadata directly to LTO5 utilising the open LTFS standard.
The versatile YoYo platform allows users to search for material, transcode and standardize multi-format projects and ensure that all required metadata is retained for online processes. YoYo can resize, colour manage and prepare material for deliverables without tying up expensive online suites. YoYo also allows offline and online comparisons with multiple wipes and mixes ensuring conforms are accurate, making it a workhorse system at facilities all over the world.
YoYo can ingest from tape and film and import file-based content including Alexa ARRIRAW, ProRes, RED R3D, DSLR Raw and H.264 formats. YoYo also outputs file and tape deliverables at the end of the creative process.
YoDailies is a new system for generating dailies with timecode burn-ins and audio syncing for multiple deliverable formats. YoDailies works with digitally acquired source material, as well as scanned film footage. The new application is designed for use both on set and during postproduction.
“YoYo offers comprehensive postproduction workflow system,” said Adam Welsh, sales director at YoYotta. “Instead of mixing and matching tools, or investing in expensive dedicated transcoding hardware, facilities are increasingly going for the efficiency and economy of the YoYo software.”
YoYo runs on Mac OSX. Along with the new YoDailies, the full suite includes YoProject, YoCapture and YoSource. YoProject manages file-based data. YoCapture allows users to ingest video sources, and YoSource is designed for conforming and outputting video masters. YoYo is available from YoYotta, or as part of the Pandora Revolution Express colour grading system.
