Digital Vision will be showing it’s new Thor hardware platform for advanced image processing at IBC 2013. The system, which is scheduled for delivery in December, enables real-time processing for 4K and faster than real-time for HD and SD sources. 8K processing will be enabled in 2014.
“The enthusiastic feedback we have received about Thor shows that there is a great demand for better, faster image processing,” said Kelvin Bolah, managing director, Digital Vision. “Thor is already achieving speed and quality that, up to now, has been unthinkable. By incorporating our DVO image enhancement and restoration tools into Thor we will have created a formidable toolset.”
Thor will initially feature the DVO Clarity noise and grain management tool, followed by other tools including DVO Dust 2.0, DVO Steady and DVO Upscale.
Thor will be available as a part of the Nucoda and Phoenix ecosystem, but will also function independently across multiple platforms, making the tools available to broadcasters and archives in a file-based or video environment, including live broadcast applications.
The company will also demo the latest versions of the Nucoda color grading product line and its Phoenix restoration software at IBC.
