Digital Vision Introduces New Broadcast and Post-Production Products at NAB 2008

Publish date:

Las Vegas, Nevada – 14 April, 2008 –Digital Vision, the premiere provider of picture enhancement systems for film and television post-production, is introducing a range of new software and hardware products for film, broadcast television, and new media applications at the U.S. National Association of Broadcasters Conference (NAB). The company will also celebrate its 20th anniversary during the high-profile annual conference. Film Master v4.0 with 4k Real-time Capabilities Digital Vision is giving the industry its first look at Film Master v4.0 featuring support for 4k real-time capabilities. The upcoming release benefits from significant processing improvements, optimisations and grid processing developments that enable new performance benchmarks in file-based finishing. The new release is highlighted by its support for 4k real-time color grading directly from open SAN storage, which enables facilities to begin editing, conforming, grading, and finishing 4k material instantly, without any ingest delays, saving time and storage costs and simplifying data management. Film Master v4.0 is planned for availability in Q4 2008. Top Japanese post facility Moonbeams is beta testing Film Master 4k support on the DVS 4k Clipster platform. New Digital Vision Optics (DVO) Tools Digital Vision’s DVO software now includes more than twenty tools for sharpening images, removing dust and drop-outs, changing and controlling grain, and converting formats. The tools are available as software options to Digital Vision’s finishing systems—Film Master, Nucoda SD and HD, and can be licensed by third parties. At NAB Digital Vision introduces four new restoration tools designed to eliminate film weave and unsteady pictures, automatically align RGB separation print, remove vertical scratches typically missed by dust/dirt removers, and address random flicker and brightness variations to create uniform exposure across scenes. The new conversion toolkit streamlines content repurposing for DVD, film, mobile, or any SD/HD broadcast standard. It changes any broadcast standard to any other, creating progressive frames from interlaced video-originated material, optimizing the upscaling of material, shortening or stretching programs, and automatically detecting and removing 3:2 cadence from interlaced video sources. Turbine, a New High-performance Render Accelerator To enable 4k real-time capabilities and allow facilities to run multiple 2k or HD tasks in faster than real time, Digital Vision also previewed Turbine, a new high performance render accelerator for all Digital Vision software. With Turbine, facilities can assign as many Intel CPU cores as are necessary to a project. This support delivers eight times more processing power than any other high-end finishing system available, in half of the rack space and requiring less power. Turbine is expected to ship in Q4 2008. Simon Cuff, President of Digital Vision, said, "This is the year that a number of trends are gathering critical mass; 4k has now become a cost effective process for Digital Intermediate the world over, tapeless high definition workflows are becoming the norm for dramas and documentaries, and many broadcasters are launching Broadband VOD services to supplement their existing channels. All of these trends are driving the demand for automatic enhancement and repurposing, and Digital Vision is the only supplier of mastering and finishing systems with these capabilities built in."
