IBC 2013: Digital Vision's Thor takes on 4K

AMSTERDAM — Stockholm’s Digital Vision ( is showing Thor at IBC 2013, a dedicated hardware platform for advanced image processing. Scheduled for delivery in December, Thor enables realtime processing for 4K and faster than realtime processing for HD and SD sources. 8K processing will be enabled in 2014.

“The enthusiastic feedback we have received about Thor shows that there is a great demand for better, faster image processing,” notes Kelvin Bolah, managing director at Digital Vision. “Thor is already achieving speed and quality that, up to now, has been unthinkable. By incorporating our DVO image enhancement and restoration tools into Thor, we will have created a formidable toolset.”

Thor will initially feature the DVO Clarity noise and grain management tool, followed by other tools, including DVO Dust 2.0, DVO Steady and DVO Upscale. It will be available as a part of the Nucoda and Phoenix ecosystem, but will also function independently across multiple platforms.
