BLACKMAGIC DESIGN’S DAVINCI HELPS LAUNCH THE NEW YEAR AT THE LAPPG & BMD NEWS

Hollywood-DI’s Managing Director Neil Smith and colorist Andrew Balis will be visiting the LAPPG on January 11th to present Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve. The West Hollywood post house has used Resolve to grade and finish hundreds of projects, and will demonstrate key features working with Avid’s recently announced Media Composer 6. DaVinci Resolve has been used to grade more feature films, promotional spots, documentaries, episodic television productions and music videos than any other color grading system, including box office hits such as “Avatar”, “Robin Hood,” “Quantum of Solace”, “Transformers”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “The Fighter” and “Hereafter”. Now that Resolve Lite, a reduced feature version with unlimited color correction nodes, is available for free, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the world’s highest performance color correction solution.

Also, Blackmagic Design announces a HyperDeck Software Update 2.0 for HyperDeck Studio that adds broadcast quality compressed 10 bit recording and playback to Avid’s DNxHD format, a nice follow up to the Avid integration news they announced in November.
