Virtualised media production company Nevion has added support for cinema-grade High Dynamic Range 4:4:4 12-bit JPEG 2000 compression to its software defined media node, Virtuoso. The product already supports HDR for 4:2:2 10-bit content.
Nevion says it has enhanced Virtuoso to enable post-production houses to work in 4:4:4 12-bit HDR for various colour spaces (RGB and XYZ, as well as YCbCr) and formats (including 2K, 4K and stereoscopic).
Johnny Dolvik, chief product and development officer at Nevion, said: “Our involvement in movie post-production workflows goes back over a decade, and we are very proud that our equipment has been used to produce some of the biggest blockbuster movies of recent years. Adding cinema grade HDR to our media node Virtuoso is just the latest development of the platform to meet the evolving needs of movie industry.”
