LIMA, PERU — Sony Professional Solutions Latin America ( is offering a free license of Assimilate’s Scratch Lab advanced dailies software to customers who purchase a high-end F5, F55 and F65 CineAlta camera. The offer will also apply to buyers of Sony’s NEX-FS700RH, NEX-FS100 and NEX-EA50H models. 

The license of Scratch Lab is fully functional, and offers users a powerful software solution to process and manage large amounts of data, color-correct, sync audio and transcode images from the entire range of Sony’s CineAlta and NXCAM 4K Super 35 MM cameras.
