4K/HD Raw/DNG/CinemaDNG realtime solution

T605E series

Video Processing

Task description: You have a couple of terabytes of footage in CinemaDNG (RAW) or RAW 3:1 from professional cameras. Before NLE one has to choose the best series, remove bad footages, tests, etc. It will last too long with Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom. It's much faster with Adobe Premier Pro, but debayer quality is not excellent and there are no denoisers in that software. Full version of DaVinci Resolve software can do that in realtime only with proxies, though free version doesn't have built-in denoisers.

Solution: Processor in realtime can read CinemaDNG images from SSD, parse and decode RAW, do all image processing and play video smoothly with any resolution. Now you don't need proxies at all, everything could be done in realtime with maximum resolution. Finally one can get at output image series of JPEG (8/12 bits per channel, quality 95%, 4:4:4), 16-bit TIFF or high quality video in Motion JPEG. Other output encoding options and formats are available via external FFmpeg.

Benchmark and Performance Table

Standard pipeline for rendering of 12-bit CinemaDNG footage with 2.5K resolution could be done at frame rate 150 fps and for 4K we can get 60 fps (CinemaDNG and processed data reside in CPU memory, without denoising and sharpening).
