Teranex Releases New Film Processing Applications

To show three new software enhancements for the imageRestore product line at IBC (August 19, 2005)

Teranex, a Division of Silicon Optix and leader in providing high performance solutions for the broadcast and post production market, today announced they will be showing three new software enhancements for the imageRestore product line at the IBC show in Amsterdam. The new enhancements include:

* SD/HD Image Stabilization
* SD/HD Secondary Color Correction
* SD/HD Motion Compensated Dirt Concealment

This announcement re-affirms Teranexs full commitment to the telecine and image restoration market in Europe and around the world and continues to add value for our customers that have invested in the Teranex Video Computer Platform.

?Soon after I re-joined Teranex as a result of the Silicon Optix Merger, we travelled to Europe to visit some of the major post production houses to discuss their specific needs, said Jed Deame, Co-founder and General Manager of Teranex. ?We listened - and we are delivering on our promise to continue to advance the platform to meet customer needs with these three new applications.

SD/HD Image Stabilization enables real-time correction for camera shake and gate weave in both SD and HD using Phase Correlation. This works well in both live production applications as well as in post-production to remove camera vibration and image instability.

SD/HD Secondary Color Correction enables real-time manipulation of specific color ranges via an intuitive color picker. This functionality further leverages the Teranex Platform into the color grading space, enabling scene-by-scene color touch-up without tying up the primary color grading resources.

Teranexs new SD/HD Motion Compensated Dirt Concealment application uses Phase Correlation to locate film dirt with a high degree of accuracy. This enables a much larger percentage of the dirt to be concealed in real-time, reducing and often eliminating the need for frame-by-frame correction by hand, significantly improving the efficiency of the workflow.

All of these application enhancements run on all of the latest 3RU and 6RU Video Computer Platforms. ?Thanks to the power of the latest Teranex processing chips, we are now able to perform high definition motion compensation in real time, continued Deame. ?This is a significant advance in the state of the art for film processing thanks to the power of these new platforms and the intelligence of the algorithms.

SD/HD Image Stabilization will be shipping at IBC, with SD/HD Secondary Color Correction and SD/HD Motion Compensated Dirt Concealment will be shipping in October.

Teranexs fully programmable, trillions-of-operations-per-second video processing systems have been adopted by thousands of the most quality conscious broadcasters and post-production houses worldwide.
