DIGITAL VISION TO SHOW DNxHD SUPPORT
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - Digital Vision (www.digitalvision.se) will be at this
April's NAB show in Las Vegas with a number of announcements, including support
for Avid DNxHD decoding/encoding into its Film Master DI color grading system.
As a first step, Digital Vision has obtained permission from Avid to
redistribute an Avid DNxHD codec, making them one of the first companies to do
so under Avid's DNxHD codec licensing program. The codec will be integrated
into the Film Master system to directly access Avid DNxHD encoded media.
The company will also unveil and begin shipping V.3.5 of its Film Master finishing
system, which features a new keyer with edge control and a de-speckle filter;
C-Mode list event order with optional handles and color correction revert
capability; and new control panel features, including tint and pan/scan control
from trackballs, automatic undo/redo memory, and improved control sensitivity
for analog controls.
Film Master V.3.5 also now supports the DVS
Centaurus video card, including 2K HSDL 15fps I/O; and for 10-bit RGB 444 SDI
output monitoring. Audio I/O is now available through either the Bluefish444
Lust or DVS Centaurus video cards, capturing multiple audio channels along with
video to Broadcast Wave files.
