IRIDAS, one of the leaders in uncompressed playback technologies announced on 13 September ’06 that leading Indian studio Maya Entertainment Ltd. has purchased a site license of FrameCycler Professional for its Mumbai facility. FrameCycler Professional provides uncompressed playback for all of Maya’s artists greatly streamlining the facility’s workflow.
“Our artists were forced to use a variety of applications for viewing, playback and file conversions, said Jeevananthan, IT Manager at Maya. “We found that FrameCycler Professional did all of that, and a lot more.”
“We find the interactive zoom, and A/B shot comparisons to be very useful tools, explained Mr. Jeevananthan. “And for our VFX projects, FrameCycler’s LUT support is another very important capability since this allows us to view shots in a correctly calibrated environment.”
“IRIDAS’ reputation is growing in India,” reported Vivek Malhotra owner of F/X Graphics, IRIDAS reseller on the sub-continent. “As facilities see the immediate benefits of reliable playback on every workstation and recognize the value of having a dedicated digital daily system for their preview room, we’re seeing significant interest in the FrameCycler applications.”
