February 12, 2009 (Stockholm, Sweden) Digital Vision, the premier supplier of picture enhancement systems for film and television post-production, is pleased to announce the sale of a DVNR and Phoenix Workstation to Park Road Post Production, New Zealand’s premiere post production facility.
“After receiving the DVNR our operators were performing their first job within 24 hours,” remembers Park Road’s Technical Director, Ian Bidgood. “The kit interfaces with our grading system effortlessly, and because it’s such an intuitive system bringing everything together was hassle-free.”
Since its arrival in September the new equipment has greatly enhanced workflow and restoration at Park Road. The DVNR handles noise reduction for all mastering material including DCI mastering in realtime, while the Phoenix is used for film restoration and fix ups. Both tools have allowed Park Road to speed up the DI and mastering process.
“In relation to mastering, we were looking for a system that was capable of noise reduction without loss of picture quality,” adds Bidgood. “The DVNR was able to perform this task and exceeded our expectations with regards to HD video and DCI mastering.”
As to the Phoenix system: “Restoration tasks used to tie up several systems to achieve the desired results. What we can do with the Phoenix offers all these tools and more, you can conform, restore, enhance, version and create outputs in any format,” he continues. “The Phoenix has already been put to work on a number of restoration projects and has freed up our other resources considerably.”
