Digital Vision Introduces Restoration and Finishing Tools

IBC 2007, Amsterdam - Digital Vision, makers of systems for film and video grading/finishing and image enhancement, launched two products at IBC. A new software-based restoration tool was introduced into the company’s line of image enhancement products, and a new tapeless grading/finishing system designed specifically for broadcast television and multiformat requirements rounds out the company’s Nucoda line.
To address the specific requirements of the emerging volume restoration/re-mastering market, the company will introduce a new software-based restoration tool. This software package leverages inexpensive computing power, sophisticated software, and a simplified UI to automatically fix common problems in video and film restoration quickly and cost-effectively. The product will provide fast, efficient, and high-quality digital remastering in various packaged media formats that address pay-per-view and pay-per-download VOD over IP services offered by providers and content owners.  
Digital Vision will also launch a new product specifically designed and priced for companies who grade and finish content for broadcast television, HD DVD, Blu-ray, broadband VOD, and mobile, within its Nucoda line. The new system will support an SD or HD video environment, data-centric workflows, and offer extended support and integration for broadcast formats, servers, and playout and distribution devices. With support for MXF, Quicktime, DPX, and Avid DNxHD, and integration with Avid and DVS Platform servers and storage, the television-focused system will be able to color grade file-based media natively, in an open environment.
The company will also introduce a new software-based motion-compensated standards converter as an option to all the products in the Nucoda line.
