MIST





MASTERING REVOLUTION

MIST revolutions the mastering process by offering in one unique solution unrivalled features for the creation of any type of masters or file packages from any type and resolution of source media.

From the RAW data to the final project, MIST provides dailies management, multiple formats transcoding, extensive editing and conforming tools, advanced color grading and color management features, image enhancement and conversion tools.

Whatever the type of master you need to deliver, MIST offers the most intuitive and evident workflow with tools to control and validate the compliancy with the standards.

DESIGNED FOR FLEXIBILITY

MIST is composed of a base module, the MIST Core functionalities, and of a choice of different mastering packages and image enhancement tools in option.

MIST CORE FUNCTIONALITIES

MIST Core is built around a multiple layer time-line that allows the mix of file types, and image resolution. The stunning user interface is designed to give immediate access to the tools and instantaneous feedback when working in client-attended sessions.
Powerful functionalities include:

  • Simultaneous de-Bayer and playback of RAW footage in real-time, in 2D and Stereo3D, at the camera's native resolution, up to 4K 60 FPS
  • Camera video output capture in real-time up to 4K
  • On-the-fly resizing (pan&scan, aspect ratio) and down-sampling
  • Conforming from compositions in XML (from Final Cut Pro), AAF and OMF formats and support for transitions
  • Sound synchronization
  • Real-time transcoding of multiple rendering streams and creation of transcoding templates
  • Stereo3D tool set including convergence management, automatic color balance function or keystone effects management
IMAGE ENHANCEMENT AND CONVERSION TOOLS

MIST offers fully integrated DVO image processing software tools, worldwide known for presenting the best image manipulation tools for restoration, enhancement and format conversion.

ADVANCED COLOR SCIENCE
  • Mix color spaces in the same time-line with per clip 3D LUT management
  • Direct output of XYZ color space when working with a DCI projector
  • Raw parameters management integrated in the grading pipe-line
  • Extensive Color Grading features, including six vectors of Secondary corrections for keying
  • ACES support from dailies to DCP
ASSEMBLER MODE

The Assembler mode gives an immediate and understandable overview of a content package:

  • the different assets (video, audio, subtitles) are displayed in segments or reels for a better overall visualization.
  • The assets can be copied, replaced or moved in one click. The Assembler mode offers a new, simple and effective method for DCP and IMF versioning.
MASTERING USING UMD

The Unified Master Delivery (UMD) is a unified interface that allows the efficient creation of multiple types of deliverable from the same content.

Metadata are shared at the project level and only what is specific to a type of deliverable needs to be chosen, avoiding redundant and fastidious data entry for each new render of the same content.
Mastering Packages includes:

  • DCI Mastering
  • IMF Mastering
  • Broadcast Mastering
