Singapore – Image Systems flagship colour grading and finishing system Nucoda Film Master, which was demonstrated at BroadcastAsia, was one of several Image Systems products/updates that are making their Asian debut. Image Systems has two new solutions to compliment its premium flagship Nucoda Film Master solution, as used by leading content creators including Pixar. To address the mid-range DI grading and dailies market, the company has introduced Nucoda Fuse, a grading and finishing solution that sets the bar for functionality and performance based on the company’s leading image science technology and Nucoda color tools. Nucoda Compose is Image Systems’ new entry-level solution that provides a cost-effective, multi-faceted workstation to aid in the grading, finishing and mastering workflow for commercials, film and television post production.

The Precision grading panel: Developed in conjunction with renowned colourists and a leading industrial design house, the Precision panel is the next generation integrated control surface for the Nucoda grading and Phoenix restoration solutions. Offering ease of navigation for improved speed of operation, the Precision panel also has a stylish look and feel that a premium grading suite deserves.
