Bright Systems Announces Thomson's Support for BrightClip Recording Technology

Thomson Integrates BrightClip in Bones and Bones Dailies (September 10, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-9-10--(IBC 2008, booth 7.J39) Bright Systems, Inc., developer of disk recording and data infrastructure technology, has announced that Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS), the worldwide leader in video solutions, has added its name to the growing list of developers supporting its BrightClip? Recording Technology. Thomson will integrate BrightClip within its Thomson Grass Valley? Bones open post-production framework.

"BrightClip overcomes the industry-wide problem of disk randomization which causes major inefficiencies in digital file-based workflows," said Morris Lindenkreuz, Product Manager for Thomsons Post Production Solutions. "No other system lays down file sequences and media streams in the most optimal pattern. This capability makes BrightClip a much welcomed innovation in the post community. By ensuring systems are BrightClip-enabled, customers will no longer need to optimize media before it can be used."

"We are delighted that Thomson is supporting BrightClip," said Antony Harris, CEO, Bright Systems, Inc. "The Thomson name is long established and much respected, and as such, we value highly their support for BrightClip. We look forward to working with them and combining our knowledge of digital processes to benefit our mutual customers."

BrightClip provides superior disk recording and playback of media within the digital post-production environment by overcoming the need for disk optimization. As media is moved between the different processes of a post-production workflow, BrightClip employs advanced, highly sophisticated technology to ensure it is laid out logically on to the disks, thus maximizing performance. Designed specifically for digital post-production and DI workflows where multiple processes are the norm, BrightClip enables customers to achieve increased stability, better use of resources and faster project turn-around times.

BrightClip can be set up for use with applications either direct through API, or indirect through an administrative interface. With the API, an application developer has full access to the dynamic pre-allocation functionality within their application. Alternatively, if an application is not BrightClip-enabled, an administrator can set up a watch folder to utilize the BrightClip recording technology. BrightClip files appear as normal alongside regular project and other files, making their use entirely transparent.

About Bones and Bones Dailies

The Bones Linux-based post-production framework from Thomson Grass Valley provides a complete digital intermediate solution. With video and data transfer, dust busting, restoration, and color correction features, it can address day-to-day applications and even more creative tasks. Running on a standard Linux computer, the Bones framework is a next-generation environment for digital intermediate and post production that lets users create workflows tailored to their needs.

Bones Dailies builds on the existing power of the Bones platform and adds a variety of features like semi-automatic audio synchronization, real-time primary and secondary color correction, resizing, burn-in character generation, file based outputs and many more dedicated to a new and non-linear Dailies post production concept. The software saves post houses time, money, and resources by enabling individual, time-consuming dailies processes to be performed in parallel by multiple artists on a storage area network (SAN). This allows companies who have invested in digital intermediate technologies to offer new services and maximize their return on investment by getting projects completed faster, more accurately, and much more efficiently.
