IBC 2013: Digital Vision to highlight Nucoda enhancements
Digital Vision will present enhancements to the Nucoda colour grading product line, and the latest version of Phoenix restoration software, at IBC 2013. In addition, for the first time in Europe, the company will be unveiling Thor, the forthcoming dedicated hardware product for advanced image processing, and Loki, a web-based monitoring and control interface to create and manage image processing tasks.
Kelvin Bolah, managing director, Digital Vision, says: “We’re pleased to bring our latest product developments to IBC, and to demonstrate many of our new technologies and features for the first time in Europe. We are particularly excited to present Thor, which garnered enthusiastic feedback at NAB.”
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 product line enhancements include new features and an expanded user interface. Integration with Cortex Dailies from MTI 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, such as two new Warping tools as well as a De-Warper to fix camera lens distortion.
The latest release of the Phoenix restoration software includes tools to fix Chromatic Aberration and Chroma bleed, and a Colour Component Align tool. Digital Vision will also demonstrate the DVO Warp, a fully automatic tool for repairing warped film and DVO Steady II, for automatic stabilisation and splice bump removal.
