NAB 2013, Stand SL14518 / Chairman's Room, Renaissance Hotel

(London, UK) In keeping with its 25-year history of advancing creative technology, Digital Vision is proud to announce a technology partnership with MTI Film that will include the integration of MTI's Cortex::Control Dailies with the award-winning Nucoda grading platform. In addition, Digital Vision is unveiling exciting new developments for their Nucoda and Phoenix product lines during NAB.

Cortex::Control Dailies is part of MTI Film's on-set/near-set and facility dailies solution for playback, color, synchronization, metadata and transcoding. The integration of Cortex with Nucoda will support the setting of looks and exporting of stills with complete CDL and metadata for set-through-post coherency. It will also allow for complex data to be shared between Nucoda and Cortex, including CDL, LUT and Camera RAW settings. Integrated into Nucoda, Cortex brings production color choices directly into the final color process, moving on-set preferences dailies through final color easily.

Other new features in Nucoda and Phoenix include an updated DVO Stereo fix tool and updated stereo tools, including two new Warping tools as well as a tool to fix camera lens distortion.

Kelvin Bolah, President, Digital Vision, said, "MTI has been our collaborator, customer, and technology partner for many years, and this integration is the result of an in-depth look at how we can better support our customers. Working closely with MTI, we know how good Cortex is, and this integration into Nucoda unleashes powerful color management and on-set capabilities. This means an accessible, ACES compatible, color pipeline that serves our clients exceedingly well."

Larry Chernoff, CEO and Founder of MTI commented, "We have worked closely with the team at Digital Vision for many years, and they consistently bring an unparalleled sense of experimentation and ingenuity to the process, which is evident in their outstanding product line. As Cortex becomes more integrated into the Nucoda toolset, we expect to see customers reap wide benefits."

The Nucoda 2013 product line enhancements include expansion and refinement of the ACES workflow, as well as extension to the ASC CDL. Other products in demonstration at NAB include Thor, a soon-to-be-released dedicated hardware for advanced image processing; Phoenix restoration software, whose latest release includes tools to fix Chromatic Aberration, a Color Component Align tool, and the much anticipated DVO De-Warp, a fully automatic system for repairing warped film, and the Golden Eye archive scanner, which forms an element of the Vintage Cloud Archive workflow solution.
