Sony Adds Features to Blu-Code Software

Posted June 1, 2009 01:45 PM by Josh Dreuth

SonySony Creative Software has announced the availablity of their recently updated professional high definition video encoder Blu-Code v3.0. The upgrade adds a number of key encoding tools, such as noise reduction filters, new scaling lists, disc burn-image creator, and a Results View A/B split screen comparison.

Chris Marchitelli, senior manager for Sony Electronics' Content Creation business, commented, "Professional customers ranging from studios and commercial production companies to sports organizations and post houses are adopting Blu-ray as a production format. The Blu-code 3.0 upgrade offers a true multi-threaded design that allows capturing through a built-in utility while encoding, along with the ability to multiplex complete projects for quality control, client approvals, or test discs."

Key Upgrades:
  • Noise Reduction Filters, including updated encoding algorithms, pre-designed low pass filter templates and de-noise filtering for CG, camera noise and film grain management. De-banding filters have also been added.
  • New Scaling Lists to simplify encoding with pre-designed AVC scaling lists for complex and demanding content, via simple template selection.
  • Built-in Disc Image Creator to create BR-ROM-compliant image files of encoded projects; then, using Vegas Pro 9 or DVDA 5, users can immediately burn the multiplexed image files directly to BD-R discs for playback on consumer BD players, providing a fast and efficient means for quality control, dailies and client approvals.
  • Result View with A/B Split Screen playback to view and QC encoded streams against the uncompressed source material in a synchronized split-screen display on a professional monitor. Users can define horizontal and vertical wipe partitions for real-time playback comparisons of the uncompressed source and decoded compressed stream synchronized in the user interface via SD/HD-SDI output.

Existing users can download the upgrade free of charge, while new users will have to shell-out $40K for the software or $59K for the complete system.

Yeah, just we want more noise reduction tools to ruin our images :/

On the other hand, the split screen 'result view' could help prevent compressionists ruining the transfer...
