Phoenix Finish is a complete restoration, re-mastering and repackaging solution which is focused on creating the highest quality deliverables from film or tape based materials. Ideal for DI, restoration and archive workflows, Phoenix Finish combines the best in automated, semi-automated and manual restoration tools, with strong editorial and mastering features providing ingest, conform, editing, colour grading and a comprehensive set of delivery formats.

DI and Restoration Workflow

Start by capturing video or directly accessing your film scans and then automatically con-form the material onto the timeline using an EDL or AAF. The material can now be reviewed or edited in real time. To begin the restoration process the renowned Digital Vision Optics (DVO) Restore toolkit can be used to either automate or manually fix images problems. Once restored primary colour correction tools are available to restore the contrast and depth of colour to match that of the original media, with tactile control available with the Colour Panel option.

Next breathe new life into your material with the DVO Enhance toolset ready for delivery. If required Phoenix projects can then be shared with other editorial, effects or finishing solutions allowing them to be further processed in a truly collaborative workflow. Finally when you are ready to start creating your deliverables DVO Convert offers you the tools to produce any format files such as SD, HD, or DCP files right from the timeline at maximum quality for any delivery platform. These can then be played out directly, or used to create DPX, MXF or QuickTime movie files for viewing offline.
