Technology demonstrations, new features unveiled for colour grading, archive, stereo and image processing
Digital Vision will bring its range of image technology solutions to NAB 2013, including the Nucoda 2013 colour grading product line which features many new tools and enhancements, and the latest version of Phoenix restoration software. In addition the company, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, will present the first technology demonstration of Thor, a soon-to-be-released dedicated hardware product for advanced image processing.
Kelvin Bolah, Managing Director, Digital Vision, said, “We’ve been listening to customer feedback and working hard to develop a wide range of new tools and features for our product ranges. In our 25th year we are particularly excited to unveil the first technology demonstrations of Thor, our forthcoming hardware product that can achieve superb quality automated restoration and processing at high speeds.”
Thor will be suitable for video and file-based sources, and will initially be able to process up to four HD video streams in real time, or one stream of 4K in real time, producing high quality images initially using Digital Vision’s DVO tools. Thor can be deployed as multiple cards in a single system and will be able to switch between algorithms on the fly. It is designed to be platform independent.
The Nucoda 2013 product line enhancements include expansion and refinement of the ACES workflow, as well as integration with Cortex Dailies from MTI. This integration allows for complex data to be shared between Nucoda and Cortex, including CDL, LUT and Camera RAW settings. Other new features include an updated DVO Stereo fix tool and updated stereo tools, including two new Warping tools as well as a De-Warper to fix camera lens distortion.
The Phoenix restoration software continues to grow in capability and reputation, with the latest release including tools to fix Chromatic Aberration, Y/C Alignment issues and a Colour Component Align tool. There is also the addition of the 9 point and 4 point warper. Digital Vision will demonstrate the soon-to-be-released DVO De-Warp, a fully automatic system for repairing warped film.
The Golden Eye archive scanner, which forms an element of the Vintage Cloud Archive workflow solution, will also be on show.
