Blackmagic Releases Color Correction BetaReal-time color correction gains 10-bit support
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.
