Digital Domain has selected Nevion’s Virtuoso software-defined media node platform to support distributed special effects and color-correction work for major Hollywood studios.

nevion digitaldomain 5Dec2018Digital Domain originally collaborated with James Cameron for the visual effects on Titanic. Since then, it has been responsible for the effects on feature films like Spider Man: Homecoming, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Avengers: Infinity War.

Nevion’s Virtuoso enables Digital Domain’s artists to share content in real-time between locations in HD quality ― single and stereoscopic ― as well as 4K/UHD formats. Providing either 2K or 4K screening with what the company said is minimal latency between locations, the Virtuoso offers producers a combination of great video quality and intuitive workflow.

"The Virtuoso media node appeals to us in that it can easily be programmed during a session for our 2K, 4K/UHD and stereoscopic needs with just a few clicks of the mouse," said Matt Sealock, media systems engineer at Digital Domain . "The adjustable bit rates for each individual channel allow us to transmit multiple streams with visual lossless picture in our screening rooms, and Virtuoso is cost-effective in that it can be scaled up for future needs while having a minimal entry cost for our needs today. Nevion sales, vendor and technical support have all been unparalleled."

Hans Hasselbach, chief commercial officer at Nevion, added: “We’re really pleased that the Virtuoso has become a permanent fixture within the workflow of Digital Domain, a company with such a longstanding reputation in the industry for its impressive visual effects.”
