Now Available as Upgrade Module for FrameCycler and SpeedGrade

IRIDAS, who introduced the first stereoscopic
playback applications for uncompressed content in 2002, today announced
availability of its DualStream stereoscopic technology as an optional module
for all current FrameCycler products as well as SpeedGrade DI and SpeedGrade
HD. Rather than having to purchase a separate application, FrameCycler
artists can now include stereoscopic content within their regular review and
approval workflow. The SpeedGrade applications are the world's first
stereoscopic color correction systems.
DualStream works by automatically linking sequences. When one channel is
loaded, DualStream adds the second channel – greatly simplifying conform
from Edit Decision Lists. The multiple timeline capabilities of SpeedGrade
and FrameCycler 2007, allow artists to easily manipulate and edit
stereoscopic content. With the DualStream architecture, "channel drift" is

"FrameCycler with DualStream proved to be an indispensable tool for us as it
allowed our artists to regularly flip their work in progress as well as
allowing us to view our shots in stereo during dailies," said Peter
Skovsbo, producer on Dinosaur Alive, which was recently completed at DamnFX
in Montreal. "Without DualStream, we would have had to migrate to a far more
expensive soft- and hardware mix."

"The best thing about the IRIDAS stereoscopic system is that it just worked;
it was so easy to use," said Dr. David Ortoft, who installed the system in
Stockholm's prestigious Karolinska Institute in 2003. "In medical imaging
and research work, picture quality is critical: we need to be able to view
content in its native file format without the risk of compression artifacts
corrupting the image."

"We are seeing tremendous growth now in stereoscopy, and filmmakers need the
right tools to work with this content from production through post to
presentation," said IRIDAS COO, Patrick Palmer. "With a four year head start
on the competition, it's easy to understand why facilities are turning to
IRIDAS for reliable solutions."

DualStream plays HD, 2K and higher resolution material, can support dual
SDI-out, and works with every available 3D display technology, including
shutter glasses, red/cyan glasses, dual projectors with polarized channels,
or auto-stereoscopic displays.
