First to Market Support for Dolby Vision Remote Creative Collaboration
Moxion, creator of the revolutionary Moxion Immediates, solution, its ‘instant dailies’ service platform, announced the integration of Dolby Vision, Dolby’s advanced imaging technology that combines high dynamic range (HDR) with wide color gamut (WCG) capabilities for next-level visual storytelling. With the ability to monitor in Dolby Vision for remote cuts, color, dailies and VFX review, key creatives are now empowered to make decisions based on the image the director, colorist and cinematographer envisioned. Dolby Vision support will be available to users with compatible devices through the Moxion app on iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS.
Increasingly, productions are shooting and monitoring on set in HDR, which is fueled by demand from leading content providers and streaming services. With many films and TV shows being shot simultaneously across multiple units and countries, being able to monitor in Dolby Vision, enables robust feedback and certainty of creative intent across all units.
“Moxion is proud to be a pioneer with Dolby on the end-to-end integration of incredible Dolby Vision into the moving image production process,” says Hugh Calveley, CEO of Moxion. “Your Dolby Vision assets can be ingested, transcoded, and played back with the secure, high-speed Moxion ecosystem. Dolby Vision, plus Moxion’s ability to make frame accurate annotation and comments, gives certainty to the colorist, editor and VFX team that feedback is against their original creation.”
Dolby Vision transforms entertainment through vivid, lifelike picture quality with highlights that are up to 40 times brighter and blacks are 10 times darker than a standard picture. Images blaze brightly from the screen and highlights dazzle. The combination of sharper contrast, true blacks, and nuanced shadow details add an amazing sense of depth. Additionally, the greatly expanded color palette of Dolby Vision adds true, distinctive colors across a wider brightness range. This means that subtle or muted colors look as real as bright, vibrant colors.
Moxion’s integration of Dolby Vision into its platform will provide the production, post and visual effects communities with unmatched control over the image. Unlike HDR10, Dolby Vision allows DPs and colorists to adjust details for individual scenes on a frame by frame basis down to the exact frame.
The need for such a solution is even more urgent during production in the current pandemic. Reduced numbers on-set and remote distributed workflows are the new normal, and Moxion’s support for Dolby Vision is the perfect solution to ensure that all participants are seeing identical images.
Calveley adds, “Covid has forced the industry into innovating ways to sign off on cuts, VFX and color grades in scenarios where you can’t bring people into the same room. Dolby Vision guarantees that everyone is making creative decisions based on the same image.”
