DVO Classic – a collection of image processing tools

Advanced Image processing tools

DVO Re-grain

DVO Grain GT manages the look of film grain and reduces unwanted electronic noise in film and video. It removes the electronic noise generated by any video camera and older telecines and its advanced motion estimation, prevents lag, smear and softening of the picture – even with aggressive settings. The mixer function on the final output allows you to bring back as much of the original noise or grain as you choose, this gives you complete control over the film look you desire. DVO Grain GT utilises Digital Vision’s Emmy Award-winning PHAME motion estimation technology.

DVO Re-grain

Use DVO Re-grain to quickly set up and generate natural looking film grain, matching almost any type of film stock. Use the intuitive controls to set grain size and sharpness, and match the characteristics of the highlight and low light intensities.

DVO Brickwall

DVO Brickwall provides an extremely sharp cut-off at a user-defined frequency. This enables you to create an accurately defined spectral content of material for various types of compression pre-processing. Coupled with other DVO tools, the quality of the image subjected to compression can usually be greatly improved.

DVO Aperture

DVO Aperture makes pictures appear sharper using a high-quality spatial filter. This is essential when you’re working with film scans. Film scanners tend to lose a great deal of high-frequency information that DVO Aperture can restore. Together with DVO Grain, you can now sharpen images AND creatively manage the look of film grain.

DVO Chroma

Use DVO Chroma to take care of those nasty Chroma artefacts on video material, or to fix Chromatic Aberration. It also fixes those nasty de-bayer artefacts you notice on the edges of your digital camera files.

DVO Alias

Cure out-of-band vertical frequencies and “twitter” Essential for curing the side effects of out-of-band vertical frequencies that show up on-screen as line flicker or “twitter”. Venetian blinds and car grills can be shown as sharply as the interlaced television system will allow.

DVO Pixel

Automatic detection and removal of even the deadest pixels on your image. Also has a manual mode for those stubborn pixels.


This is a version of DVO Grain that makes use of some enhances instructions now available on processors and compilers. It does not have the Keyer option that is in DVO Grain  If you would like to use a keyer so separate areas for grain reduction, use DVO GrainGT in a user FX Layer.

DVO Steady

Designed to automatically stabilise based on image content this tool was originally designed for film frame instability, but it is very handy in a tight situation.

Without control we have nothing…


Optimised Control for Intuitive Creativity
A unique combination of touch-screens plus traditional pushbutton and joystick controllers now enables colourists to enjoy immediate access to all Nucoda’s powerful tools, thereby letting them focus on creativity.

Tangent Element Panels

The Tangent Elements are an ideal control surface for user who needs control no a budget. The implementation we have chosen allows any tool to be remapped to any function using theTangent mapper application

Precision Control Panel

The Precision control panel represents the next-generation of integrated work surfaces for Nucoda
grading and finishing solutions. It offers unprecedented flexibility and dramatically improves performance and productivity of colourists.

Precision control is available as a full set including Control, Colour and Image panels or as the Colour panel only

Tangent Element Control – Modular and expandable

The Tangent Element is a modular and affordable control panel. It is expandable to suit any requirement
Full support for custom mapping of all available commands and tools in Nucoda
