Sonic Solutions unveils CineVision 2.0 Sonic Solutions unveiled CineVision 2.0 today, a major upgrade to the company's professional encoding system that has been enhanced to tackle the complex encoding challenges of next-generation Blu-ray Disc (BD) and HD DVD optical disc formats. This new version sets a new standard for control and workflow efficiency with a range of features and enhancements including the integration of best-of-class Digital Vision image enhancement technologies, advanced segment-based editing functionality with multi-take capabilities, and dual-format legalization control.
CineVision 2 also further improves encoding quality of all codecs used for next-generation high-definition video: H.264 (AVC), VC-1, and MPEG-2. "To keep pace with the growing demands of our high-definition services, it is critical that the tools we use are not only extremely proficient, but also allow us to work more efficiently," said Jeff Huang, VP of New Media at Elektrofilm Digital Studios. "With CineVision 2.0, Sonic is not only releasing an outstanding application, but perhaps more importantly, they are applying their deep understanding of all aspects of the high-definition title workflow to deliver a solution that empowers us to increase productivity so that we may better serve our clients' needs."

CineVision 2 has been optimized for professionals requiring comprehensive support for a wide range of input types, including QuickTime, AVI, and DPX image sequences. As part of Sonic's collaboration with advanced digital media application developer Digital Vision, CineVision 2.0 now also incorporates Digital Vision Optics (DVO), a collection of resolution-independent, software-based image enhancement tools.

"Encoding demands are escalating as title capacity has begun to increase for HD DVD and BD title releases. To meet the industry demands of quality and quantity, CineVision 2.0 is arriving at exactly the right moment with its streamlined workflow and hyper-quality enhancements," said Rolf Hartley, senior vice president and general manager of Sonic's Professional Products Group.

He added: "CineVision is the right platform for content creators who need the very best asset encoding and a refined workflow to maximize their HD authoring business potential immediately." Sonic will be demonstrating CineVision 2 at NAB (Stand SL4314), April 16th to the 19th in Las Vegas Nevada. CineVision 2.0 will be released in May as a full workstation featuring all codecs and tools; single Codec product configurations will also be available.

It won't be long before the encoding of encryption far outweighs the encoding of the actual film content .. !!
