Image Systems, the Swedish vendor of high-resolution image processing systems, has announced that CBS News has purchased a second Nucoda HD for its New York facility. The new grading and mastering system will work alongside the original Nucoda HD that CBS News bought in 2008, with both being part of the CBS Broadcast Center where “60 Minutes,” “CBS News Sunday Morning,” “48 Hours Mystery,” and specials are created. Precision panels have also been installed on both Nucoda HD systems.
For the past three years, the original Nucoda HD system acquired by CBS News has been utilized on “CBS News Sunday Morning,” the 32-year old newsmagazine hosted by Charles Osgood. First purchased for “60 Minutes,” that installation laid the groundwork for the system and its integration with the news division’s Avid editorial pipeline. Nucoda’s integration with an end-to-end, file-based, Avid-centric workflow was an important feature for this broadcast environment.
