2017 Features at a Glance

The Digital Wet Gate

To Wet Gate, or not to Wet Gate? That question has just been answered. Our software interpretation of the cumbersome scanner add on covers all the capabilities of its physical counterpart, without the drawbacks.

Fast, non-destructive and safe, our Digital Wet Gate reduces the divide between physical and digital restoration removing scratches, dust/dirt and other optical anomalies quickly and in one single pass.

Redefined Colour Pipeline

Our all new end to end colour pipeline is specifically designed for archive use and based on the widely adopted OpenColorIO. Integrated for maximum flexibility and deeply embedded into PFClean’s Workflow Manager, this new colour pipeline provides convenient support for ACES workflow, the ability to burn in colour space transforms into individual file export paths and quickly make changes easily and non destructively when needed.

Industry Changing Standards Conversion

Need to convert your newly restored SD video project to UHD and beyond? We’ve got you covered. Cross convert video to film standards, film to video or to the many new digital formats.

Providing a boundless alternative to restrictive linear hardware solutions, our Standards Conversion node is available right where you need it, in the Workflow Manager. Easily create multiple consistent deliverables from a single resolution source while consistently producing better quality results than hardware alternatives.

Video Restoration Extended

Video restoration is a hot ticket for archives. Here at The Pixel Farm we have long recognised this and we continue to invest R&D efforts in our archive focussed video restoration pipeline. For 2017 we’ve deepened the toolset, and made video restoration more efficient.

And much much more;
