Digital Voodoo Announces 16-bit Support for Adobe After Effects 5.5(January 14, 2002)
D1 Desktop 64 Series
The D1 Desktop 64 Series is comprised of the D1 Desktop 64, D1 Desktop 64 Lite and D1 Desktop 64AV uncompressed 10-bit SMPTE 259M SDI standard def QuickTime video cards. The D1 Desktop 64 series are the only QuickTime cards on the Mac platform to include full 10- bit capture to disk.
The D1 Desktop 64AV is totally optimized for editing with applications such as Apple's Final Cut Pro. This new model includes powerful audio features instead of the key output that the D1 Desktop 64 and D1 Desktop 64 Lite models introduce.
Also included on the D1 Desktop 64 and D1 Desktop 64 Lite models is a dual channel video output. Video can be selected to be "video and video", "video and alpha key", or full dual link 4:4:4:4 for amazing video quality.
When not being used for real-time video, all models of D1 Desktop 64 output as a second Mac monitor via the SDI output. This allows full frame live paint into the broadcast monitor with applications such as Adobe Photoshop. Working onto a broadcast monitor allows color, field flicker and aliasing problems to be instantly seen and corrected, and the pixel aspect ratio problems are eliminated.
D1 Desktop 64AV, with audio features for edit, retails at US$3,495. D1 Desktop 64 retails at US$3,995, while the output only version, D1 Desktop 64 Lite, retails at a low US$1,495.
