Digital Vision addresses workflows & restoration at NAB

LAS VEGAS — Digital Vision has enhanced its Nucoda color grading platform, providing increased workflow capabilities and additional tools for grading, pre-grading and stereoscopic projects. At NAB the company will unveil the Nucoda Film Master ACES workflow, a new end-to-end solution developed by the Science and Technology Council (STC) of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS). 

ACES helps solve workflow issues involving different formats by delivering a post solution that keeps all production assets at their maximum quality. The upcoming version of Nucoda Film Master comes with ACES support and a full HDR grading capability, including a toolset for dealing with color critical workflows such as HDR capture from Arri and Red cameras.

In addition to ACES, Digital Vision will also highlight its new DVO video restoration toolset (pictured) at NAB. DVO answers the need of content owners housing millions of hours of material stored in video tape archives. 

For stereoscopic projects Digital Vision will demonstrate its new automated Auto Color & Align tools. Colorists can now automatically match 3D cameras using advanced geometry technology providing morphing and color matching capabilities.

The company will unveil its Deformable Shape Tracker for Nucoda, providing an advanced shape tracking concept. Instead of tracking and then moving a shape the new tracker tool deforms the shape to perfectly match the changes occurring to the object underneath.

Other Nucoda news includes support for the latest Red Epic HDRx, Arri Alexa range of cameras and the Sony F65 CineAlta camera; a 64-bit application providing increased performance and stability when using large format digital cameras and image manipulation at 4K; and updated features for the latest Avid and Apple FCP editorial workflows. The company will also launch Nucoda Look, the latest addition to its grading and finishing platform. Nucoda Look is a pre-grade assist station and deliverables platform with LUT export; these LUTs are now importable into the 42-inch Grade 1 Dolby PRM-4200 Professional Reference Monitor.
