Digital Vision showing latest additions to Nucoda line at Broadcast Asia
Digital Vision will present enhancements to the Nucoda colour grading product line, the latest version of Phoenix restoration software and the Golden Eye III archive scanner at Broadcast Asia 2013. In addition, for the first time in the Asia Pacific region, the company will unveil Thor, the forthcoming dedicated hardware product for advanced image processing.
Kelvin Bolah, managing director, Digital Vision, says: “We’re pleased to bring our latest product developments to Broadcast Asia, and to demonstrate many of our new technologies and features for the first time in the Asia Pacific region. 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, including 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 soon-to-be-released DVO Warp, a fully automatic system for repairing warped film.
The Golden Eye Film Scanner is a high resolution scanning solution for archive and restoration, handling negative, print and intermediate in all major film formats (16/35 as well as 8 mm) at 2k and 4k resolution. It also forms an element of Digital Vision’s Vintage Cloud, a semi-automated digitisation solution that enables archive owners to preserve their film assets.
