DaVinci Resolve updates... B lackmagic Design have announced the release of a new update to The World’s most advanced colour correction tool. The update includes a new timecode feature to add timecode to non timecode cameras, improved CinemaDNG control palette, AAF and XML clip management, enhanced stereoscopic 3D grading and support for XML round tripping in the new release of Final Cut Pro X version 10.0.6. Resolve 9.0.3 is available immediately for free for existing DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Lite users.  This new DaVinci Resolve software allows, for the first time, cameras that do not support timecode to  be used for professional shoots and still offer accurate and synced timecode for editing and conforming. By simply recording timecode from a timecode generator onto one of the cameras audio tracks, combined with the new Resolve Media Pool timecode reader feature, any camera can become integrated into professional workflows. Through the feature, Resolve is able to read the linear timecode from the audio tracks and instantly update the video timecode for those clips.

PHABRIX success in New York U K Test & Measurement broadcast manufacturer PHABRIX recently exhibited its new rack mount PHABRIX Rx range for 24/7 test and measurement at CCW 2012 New York. The PHABRIX Rx range consists of three products; the Rx2000 2U 19” chassis with integral dual screen display, the Rx1000 1U rasterizer and the half rack 1U Rx 500 rasterizer. Each of the instruments is capable of accepting a range of input and output modules supporting SD and HD as standard with 3G-SDI as an option. The Rx instruments can be used to support a host of broadcast environments be it MCR, OB trucks, engineering bays and satellite farms. Engineers can choose from a range of sophisticated modules for video generation and analysis combined with audio analysis and generation at a very favourable price point. The 2U 19” PHABRIX Rx2000 supports up to 8 SDI channels simultaneously. With the launch of the new Key to the whole range is the unique ability of each chassis to output instruments via HDMI or SDI output to a 1920 x 1080 monitor providing a ‘multi viewer’ of instruments across a broad spectrum of broadcast testing environments. Paul Nicholls Director sales and marketing attended the show and commented: ‘New York was still in recovery following the storm however you wouldn’t have known it due to the amount of people at the show. The PHABRIX Rx range with its multi viewer of instruments via HDMI/SDI simply stopped people in the aisles, they’d never seen anything like it before. We had unprecedented interest from all of the major broadcasters who bought into the functionality and the cost effectiveness of this innovative solution.‘ PHABRIX’s hand held Sx range was also on show at CCW. With unrivalled portability the PHABRIX Sx instruments offer a combined generator, analyser and monitor in one cost effective package. The addition of eye and jitter functionality with the release of the PHABRIX SxE has made it a global phenomenon extending the brand recognition World-wide.
