At NAB 2014, MTI Film introduced DRS Nova, new digital restoration software that is the successor to its Correct DRS, which has been in use in digital film restoration for roughly 20 years. DRS Nova combines native 64-bit processing, resolution independence and a file-based architecture. It provides all of the features of Correct DRS, including its tools for noise and grain removal, paint, flicker correction and general defect repairs. It also offers improved tools for scratch removal, de-warping, image stabilization and 3 layer registration. New features include tools for managing projects more efficiently and for sharing and tracking comments.
“DRS Nova is a demonstration of MTI Film’s ongoing commitment to advancing the state of the art for digital film restoration,” said MTI Film CEO Larry Chernoff. “This new product offers the performance postproduction operations need to achieve maximum production efficiency at resolutions up to 4K and beyond.”
DRS Nova has been in beta testing for several months and is currently being used on several film restoration projects. It will be released shortly after NAB.
Users of Correct DRS with current service contracts are eligible to upgrade to DRS Nova at no cost. Those users are also able to purchase permanent licenses for Correct DRS at reduced cost in order to have continued access to video features, such as VTR I/O.
