Amsterdam, Netherlands - Blackmagic Design announced the
purchase of all assets of DaVinci Systems LLC. Blackmagic Design will
now offer DaVinci Resolve DI color-correction systems and DaVinci
Revival film restoration products for sale worldwide.
DaVinci Resolve working with stereoscopic 3D and 4K, and DaVinci Revival film restoration will be demonstrated at IBC 2009 at the DaVinci booth 7.D08.
DaVinci Resolve supports more real-time color correction than any other system, says a representative. DaVinci Resolve is not limited by the computer it's running on. DaVinci Resolve is based on a cluster of computers with high performance GPU cards, so processing is real time.
Blackmagic Design has also initiated a restructure of the DaVinci business. The new focus will now be on the DaVinci Resolve color correction and DaVinci Revival film restoration products.
Due to the age of the DaVinci 2K systems which were originally launched in 1999, Blackmagic Design will cease marketing 2K systems immediately. Support for 2K systems will continue and plenty of spare parts are available for customer repairs. Engineering will be dedicated to bug fix updates and small feature releases.
Annual support contracts will also immediately cease, and a new "pay as you go" system will be initiated so customers only need to pay if a fault occurs.
