Image Systems bringing restoration and grading solutions to BVE8 February 2012
Image Systems’ Phoenix provides video, film and digital restoration tools for archives and content owners, while the company’s Nucoda software portfolio incorporates a suite of colour grading and finishing solutions used in film and television post-production.
Meanwhile, its Golden Eye film scanners provide optimal high resolution scanning for DI, archive and restoration, handling negative, print and intermediate in all major film formats.
Phoenix is claimed to be unique as it’s the only high-end restoration and mastering solution that provides film, video and file-based restoration tools allowing users to get the most from their film and digital archives. Working in 64-bit Phoenix significantly improves speed and performance when restoring memory intensive projects.
The system has been used recently by facilities including Éclair, who restored Pathé’s 1940s French masterpiece, Les Enfants du Paradis; Mars Motel, who restored the iconic film Autumn Sonata starring Ingrid Bergman; and Deluxe 142, who are rescuing the ‘Hitchcock 9’ – a series of silent films made by late great director Alfred Hitchcock.
Shipping to more than 50 customers worldwide, the next generation Precision control surface for the Nucoda grading solutions features five high-resolution touchscreens with unique menu navigation and toolset control. The latest version of Nucoda now includes new features for the Precision grading panel.
