Blackmagic Releases Color Correction Beta

Real-time color correction gains 10-bit support By Dave Nagel
Blackmagic Design has released yet another new piece of software--its fourth in two weeks--for video cards supported by its drivers. This time, the company has released a beta color corrector for real-time, 10-bit color correction. It's available now for Blackmagic's DeckLink board for Mac OS X.

The initial release of Blackmagic's 10-bit, real-time color corrector supports the company's $995 DeckLink board. DeckLink is a capture and edit board for video editing and motion graphics packages running on Mac OS X. According to the company, 10-bit color correction improves color accuracy as much as "four times" and also helps to eliminate banding that can occur through heavy gain and gamma changes in 8-bit color correction.


Blackmagic says the 10-bit, real-time color corrector will also be updated for other hardware that runs off Blackmagic drivers within the next few days. The current version is available now as a free public beta. For more information or to download the software, visit http://www.decklink.com.
