Digital Vision has unveiled a unique, powerful, single restoration system at NAB 2012, answering the needs of content owners housing millions of hours of material stored in videotape archives. Solely targeted at the video restoration market, Phoenix Video provides broadcasters and archive owners with a highly cost-effective image restoration software solution that allows content stored on videotape to be fully restored ready for distribution across multiple platforms.

Phoenix Video is an end-to-end solution that includes Digital Vision's leading image manipulation DVO software toolset for highly automated restoration and enhancement of video content stored on various tape formats, such as 1", U-Matic and Betacam SP, or later transferred to digital tape formats. The system handles image defects such as drop-outs, severe noise, cross color artifacting, line sync problems (shifts/stretching) and more. Additional features include motion compensated frame rate conversion and high-quality upscaling as well as full support for common broadcast codecs.

These new video restoration tools have also been added to Digital Vision's high-end restoration offering Phoenix Finish. The system can now restore material from analogue videotape archives up to 4K film restoration handling a combination of video and film related issues. With the new video restoration toolset included, Phoenix Finish now provides users with a unique system that fulfils all requirements regardless of acquisition format or quality of original material.

Torbjörn Dyrvold, Phoenix & DVO Product Manager says, "We are delighted to introduce this new integrated video restoration toolset at NAB. Phoenix is the only high-end restoration and mastering solution that provides both film and video restoration capabilities. The addition of the video tools enables our customers to expand their services and bring new life to valuable content stored on tape. For the first time this allows users to fully correct and deliver projects of mixed film and video media with related artifacts, within a single timeline using state-of-the-art tools."

The first user of Phoenix video will be Deluxe 142 in Soho, London who will add the system to its full range of digital restoration services.

Phoenix Video is available as a standalone product or integrated with Phoenix Finish the company's flagship restoration system, which combines the power of film and video restoration in one system. Phoenix combines the best in automated, semi-automated and manual restoration tools, with strong editorial and mastering features providing ingest, conform, editing, color grading and a comprehensive set of delivery formats.
