Germany: IRIDAS has introduced RAW file support for real-time de-Bayering of ARRI D20 digital camera footage. The ARRI RAW file format offers 3K resolution and 12-bit color depth and can be played directly in FrameCycler and SpeedGrade with the support. As RAW files are one third the size of uncompressed RGB formats, users do not have to render the footage for viewing. The ARRI RAW file format is the third RAW file format supported by IRIDAS, with CineForm RAW and the Phantom camera RAW formats preceding it. Support for the ARRI D20 3K RAW format will be available with SpeedGrade DDS, IRIDAS new digital dailies application scheduled for release in August 2007, as well as the SpeedGrade and FrameCycler applications. Further information is available from IRIDAS at +49 89 330 35 142.
