Digital Vision: IBC 2010 Preview

3D Feature Street Dance

Digital Vision is the leading supplier of colour grading, finishing, mastering and restoration solutions for the broadcast, film and commercials industries. At the heart of the company’s technology sits market-defining colour management functionality, highly creative grading tools and comprehensive stereoscopic 3D features for post production.

Its Nucoda Film Master broke new ground earlier this year when its toolset was used to grade Europe’s first – and highly successful - 3D feature StreetDance. IBC is the ideal platform to engage with Digital Vision and to sample the power yet simplicity of its technology via demonstrations hosted by leading colourists. Executives will be on-hand to guide visitors through the possibilities associated with DI workflows, stereoscopic grading and restoration requirements.

World debut: The Precision Panel

The powerful, ergonomic and slim Precision panel from Digital Vision includes new features such as four track balls, panel touch, screen tactile control surface and virtual keyboard. The high res full colour screen with touch technology also includes intuitive operation, a clearer display and a higher level of detail on the status and settings of the project, timeline and effects. The panel sees a reduced number of controls while maintaining optimal functionality.
