Digital Vision has unveiled software improvements for its Nucoda grading platform including major upgrades to the stereoscopic 3D toolset.

Bruno Munger, Product Manager at Digital Vision said of the new software release: “Digital Vision has been deeply ingrained in the image and colour pipeline for over 20 years.  The Nucoda platform, developed with users and colourists in mind, has evolved to the point of being an industry standard. 

“We heard our customers, and took their needs back to our colour scientists and R&D team.  The 2009 Nucoda release answers their wishes and sets the stage for future needs.”

The changes, which will help colourists using its Film Master grading system, include:

  • Stereoscopic Toolset and Versatile Monitoring Option - tools that enable time saving grading and synchronous workflow for Left Eye/Right Eye footage with management of every 3D acquisition format.
  • New Automatic Tracker -  automatic tracking of shapes and layers, full tactile control from the control panel, and full rotational, scaling and predictive tracking. 
  • New DVO Image Enhancement tools - DVO Flicker restores material and deals with issues based in brightness fluctuations and DVO Upscale can be used for conversions from SD to HD, using algorithms that maintain edge quality.

The new features are available with immediate effect.
