IBC 2014, STAND 6.A14

(London, UK) - At IBC 2014 Digital Vision will unveil a revolutionary automated archive workflow, and return to its roots with new software based transcoding technology, the new Golden Eye 4 scanner, Thor 4K, and updates to both its grading and restoration platforms.

Digital Vision has been able to transition its business across both the broadcast and archive worlds due to its heritage and continued development of its technology in motion compensated standards conversion, automation, media management and monitoring.

The Golden Eye 4 archive scanner, unveiled for the first time in Europe, incorporates many new features and enhancements including universal optics - a single lens, motor driven, multi-axis optical system for precision image sizing, position and focus. Users can scan any film size from 8mm to 70mm without changing the optics.

In addition Digital Vision will present Bifrost Archive Bridge, a unique scalable solution, suitable for archives of any size, comprising various workflow components that can be utilized either as a complete end-to-end solution or integrated into existing infrastructures depending on individual requirements.

Digital Vision will also demonstrate the latest 2014 versions of the Nucoda color grading suite incorporating AJA Kona support. With AJA's unparalleled interoperability with established editing products, traditional editing suites can now become grading suites without the requirement for additional hardware or investment.

There are also a range of enhancements to Phoenix, the world's premier film restoration software, including enhanced Grain, Flicker and Paint tools. Digital Vision will also demonstrate real-time 4K image processing using THOR hardware.

"We also remain committed to addressing the price pressure challenges in the Post Production market while rewarding loyal customers by providing the best color correction and image processing tools available."
