Drastic Releases DrasticPreview Pro™ Media Player
Toronto, ON. June 6th, 2013
Drastic Technologies announces the release of the Pro version 5 of its widely acclaimed DrasticPreview™ media player for Windows and OS-X. DrasticPreview Pro™ adds HD-SDI hardware support, signal and data analysis tools, 16 channel audio, closed caption output and EBU R128 loudness monitoring to DrasticPreview’s™ already extensive feature set.
Drastic’s Preview Pro™ version supports a wide variety of video boards including AJA's Kona, Corvid and Xena series, BlueFish444's Epoch|SuperNova and BlackMagic's DeckLink, MultiBridge and Intensity series. Signal analysis features include YCbCr and RGB waveform monitor, vectorscope, histogram and closed caption (CC) overlays. A true data display has the actual pixel values in hex or decimal for the pixels from any part of the frame. Mouse controlled zoom and pan allows for exact pixel inspection on the DVI monitor with full screen output to HD-SDI, HDMI or analogue outputs.
Up to 16 channels of 24 bit audio may be output (hardware dependent) for the highest possible quality monitoring. DrasticPreview Pro™ conforms to EBU R128 loudness recommendation for audio level measurement and normalization. For setups with only stereo monitoring, any pair of channels may be selected and mapped to the first stereo pair.
James Brooks, CTO at Drastic, says, “DrasticPreview Pro™ turns your AJA, Bluefish444 or BlackMagic board into a powerful output device with a professional monitoring tool set”. He continues, “With this release our media player has now become a broadcast quality clip server.”
DrasticPreview Pro™ is available for $295.00 US
