Drastic COVID-19 Information


Business Continuity and Contingency

We at Drastic take the safety and well-being of our customers and employees very seriously.  We will endeavour to maintain our normal high level of support and continue to deliver our products with a minimum of delay.  However, due to potential quarantines and other interruptions that may arise from the COVID-19 outbreak, we suggest that all communication is made via email, to allow us to better direct and respond, even while we may not be in the office.

Free Use of Our Tools for Those Working from Home Has Ended

As many creators were working from home, Drastic Technologies was offering free 3-month licenses for all existing customers as well as those that could use our media content creation tools to make working at home easier. This included videoQC, HDRScope/4KScope, MediaReactor for Avid and Adobe, and even Net-X-Code (which can be run on Windows as well as Linux). With more and more people returning to the office, this offer has ended. However you can still download and install the software you need, and get a two week temporary license to try our software.

MediaReactor for Avid and Adobe provide extended file import and export access from directly with your creative tools. This includes camera raw formats, uncompressed, MOV/MP4 with time code, and HEVC compressed files.

Drastic's 4KScope and HDRScope signal analysis software provide the most cost effective, pixel accurate set of scopes for editors, camera/audio technicians, and colorists, and ensuring the best possible independent confirmation of deliverables in SD, HD, P3, HDR, HLG and WCG formats.

We also provide a full range of scopes in our file based videoQC software, along with analysis and reports, full reference comparison including all video, audio, metadata and time code data.

Net-X-Code is a scalable capture/playout/transcode server with IP (RTP/UDP/RTSP), SDI (HD/3G/12G), NDI and SMPTE 2110/2022 capture and playback, featuring proxy creation, transcoding, file re-wrapping, edit while record, partial file restore and clipping, and much more.
