PHYX Cleaner 2 Saves DSLR Footage

Pittsburgh, PA, November 20, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Digital cameras bring convenience with a number of drawbacks such as noise, aliasing, and banding. PHYX Cleaner 2 is a collection of fast GPU-accelerated plugins designed to repair aliased, banded, or noisy footage with advanced refinement and reconstruction features. PHYX Cleaner 2 also includes NASA-grade sharpening tools to enhance video or 3D rendered images. PHYX Cleaner 2 plugins support Apple Final Cut Pro (X), Apple Motion, Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Premiere Pro. A demo version of PHYX Cleaner 2 is available in Noise Industries' FxFactory 4.

"We have seen numerous comments in internet forums asking; how to repair DSLR footage, how to make it look better. PHYX Cleaner 2 is our definitive answer, and may also be used to repair or enhance other digital footage or 3d renders," noted Justin Bendo, President and CEO of PHYX Incorporated.

PHYX Cleaner includes seven plugins designed to repair and improve the quality of images:

AntiAlias:
A superior plugin that provides an advanced FXAA (Fast Approximate Anti-Aliasing) along with other tools for the removal of aliasing (blockiness) in photographed or 3D rendered footage.

ChromaReconstructor:
Repairs undesirable chroma subsampling artifacts such as pixelated or blocky color by rebuilding the chroma channels of the 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 video signal into 4:4:4. Issues with the chroma may be quite apparent when keying blue or green screen material or when viewing a colorful object.

Deband:
Restores smooth gradients if posterization occurs as a result of low-bit depth sampling. Variance and smoothing are added for the removal of undesirable banding issues, as well as to dither the final images.

Deinterlace:
Converts interlaced fields into progressive frames with the following methods – Blended field, Reconstructed field, or Motion Compensated.

FastNoiseReduction:
Utilizes a variety of noise removal methods in order to minimize grain and noise. The methods are – Spatial for high frequency or fine noise, Threshold for light grain, Temporal for heavy or large grain and noise patterns, and Despeckle for uneven grain and/or noise.

HazeRemoval:
Simulates a UV filter by minimizing the atmospheric haze as a result of the UV spectrum. It also simulates a polarizing filter through color-subtraction.

Sharpest:
An improved sharpening processor which utilizes a variety of techniques, including sharpening of only the edges of images to increase perceived sharpening without increasing noise. The sharpening techniques utilized are – Low Pass filter (utilized by NASA), UnSharp Mask, and Threshold.

Price of PHYX Cleaner:
The PHYX Cleaner 2 is available with the price of $99 at the PHYX Inc website (http://www.phyxware.com). The PHYX Cleaner 2 requires FxFactory 4, which is available at the Noise Industries website (http://www.noiseindustries.com/fxfactory).

Microsoft Azure Container Services can be used for container deployment in a variety of ways including support for Orchestrators like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Mesos. However, the abstraction for app development that support application self-healing, scaling and so on may not be at the right level. Helm and Draft makes this a lot easier. In this primarily demo-driven session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, a Cloud Solutions Architect/Evangelist at Microsoft, wi...
Though cloud is the future of enterprise computing, a smooth transition of legacy applications and systems is critical for seamless business operations. IT professionals are eager to start leveraging the cost, scale and other benefits of cloud, but with massive investments already in place in existing infrastructure and a number of compliance and resource hurdles, it can be challenging to move to a cloud-based infrastructure.
Containers are rapidly finding their way into enterprise data centers, but change is difficult. How do enterprises transform their architecture with technologies like containers without losing the reliable components of their current solutions? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Tony Campbell, Director, Educational Services at CoreOS, will explore the challenges organizations are facing today as they move to containers and go over how Kubernetes applications can deploy with lega...
SYS-CON Events announced today that Avere Systems, a leading provider of hybrid cloud enablement solutions, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 21st International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Avere Systems was created by file systems experts determined to reinvent storage by changing the way enterprises thought about and bought storage resources. With decades of experience behind the company’s founders, Avere got its ...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...

High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, will discuss how by using...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
