ANNOUNCING DARK ENERGY PRO 3
Dark Energy Pro 3 is coming! On Friday, July 26, we will have the beta release of the newest version of our award-winning Dark Energy Pro texture toolset available. The updates are significant, and reflect our commitment to evolving the science in new ways and keeping the technology the very best in the world.
The final released version will ship (be ready for download) on August 15th; please look for a notice from our tech group around that date. As a reminder, you must be fully up to speed on your annual maintenance to take advantage of these amazing updates (contact us if you need renewal or are not sure when your maintenance expires):
- Improved 4k processing
- Improved auto analysis and manual profiling, with the new capability of analyzing separate color channels on different frames
- Improved de-interlacer
- [NEW] Cinema Tachyon expansion capacity
Q: What is Cinema Tachyon and why would I need it in Dark Energy?
A: For those who do not know about our other flagship product, Tachyon, it is a high-grade standards converter capable of conversions on par or better than the best hardware solutions in the world. Imagine now having the ability to deliver textured content in any target frame rate, or the ability to fix broken telecine/cadence patterns or intermixed content prior to texturing. This is the ultimate 1-2 punch. We can provide trials of the plugin.
Q: That’s terrific and all, but how much will it cost?
A: The price for Cinema Tachyon, per seat which includes up to 4 GPU licenses, is $15,000. We are willing to negotiate fees with any facility willing to include our Cinnafilm logo in their film credits.
