Digital Vision to Show Nucoda ACES Workflow at NAB

Digital Vision will unveil several enhancements to its Nucoda color grading platform at NAB, providing increased workflow capabilities and additional tools for grading, pre-grading and stereoscopic projects. The company will introduce the new Nucoda Film Master ACES workflow, a new interchange format developed by the Science and Technology Council (STC) of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It was designed to ensure accurate color reproduction throughout the workflow.

Today’s postproduction environment has seen an explosion in the number of cameras, file formats and distribution channels required for many projects. These new formats also need to coexist and stay compatible with older formats and assets, which can result in much greater project complexity and data management headaches for the production. ACES solves this problem by delivering a single postproduction workflow that keeps all production assets at their maximum possible quality and providing the full benefit of High Dynamic Range (HDR) production pipelines. The upcoming version of Nucoda Film Master comes with ACES support and a full HDR grading capability, including a toolset for dealing with color-critical workflows such as HDR capture from ARRI and RED cameras.

In addition to ACES, Digital Vision will also highlight its new DVO video restoration toolset, answering the needs of content owners housing millions of hours of material stored in video tape archives.

For stereoscopic projects Digital Vision will demonstrate its new automated Auto Color & Align tools – a key element of Nucoda’s stereoscopic workflow. Colorists can now automatically match 3D cameras using advanced geometry technology providing morphing and color matching capabilities.

The company will unveil its Deformable Shape Tracker for Nucoda providing a unique advanced shape tracking concept. Instead of tracking and then moving a shape the new tracker tool deforms the shape to perfectly match the changes occurring to the object underneath.

Nucoda also has a number of other key enhancements, including support for the latest RED Epic HDRx, ARRI Alexa range of cameras and the Sony F65 CineAlta camera (SRMASTER format), as well as updated features for the latest Avid and Apple FCP editorial workflows.

The company will also launch Nucoda Look – the latest addition to its grading and finishing platform. Nucoda Look is a pre-grade assist station and deliverables platform with LUT export. These LUTs are now importable into the 42-inch Grade 1 Dolby PRM-4200 Professional Reference Monitor.
