Online post workflows for virtually all cameras and file formats up to 4K spatial resolution
Optimized for digital mastering, digital cinema, television, and effects-heavy projects, Neo is the right product to support the most demanding 2D and 3D digital intermediate workflows. Neo converts virtually all camera formats from HDV to 6K digital cinema, DSLRS, 3D cameras, and file-based fomats including TIF and DPX into Cineform Digital Intermediate files for the highest quality editing, effects, and mastering workflows.
With versions for both Windows and Mac, CineForm’s Neo delivers a real-time digital intermediate workflow, even up to 4K spatial resolution, that is compatible with most NLEs — including from Adobe, Apple, Avid, and Sony — enabling cross-platform compatibility for 2D and 3D editing and effects applications that has never before existed. A CineForm DI workflow begins with the underlying CineForm Intermediate compression acclaimed for its high visual fidelity, and which is used routinely as the mastering format for 2D and 3D film, televison, and archive workflows.
Neo also includes the First Light application to allow non-destructive primary color correction, 3D adjustments, plus text and graphics overlays without flattening those adjustments into the underlying video layer. This is accomplished through First Light's Active Metadata™ architecture that ensures compatibility with all QuickTime and AVI applications. Neo also includes HD Link (Win) and ReMaster (Mac) which convert virtually all camera or file sources into CineForm files at unrestricted spatial resolution.
With Neo you get:
The Industry’s Best Compression: CineForm’s respected 12-bit CineForm 444 format exceeds the visual fidelity of the respected HDCAM SR tape format. CineForm media becomes the new master format for your file-based workflow, and files are immediately ready for editorial or archive as soon as they are created. CineForm media is visually equivalent to uncompressed sources but weigh in at about 15% of the file size.
Up to 4K spatial resolution*: No projects are more visually and computationally demanding than digital cinema projects requiring substantial manipulation in post, or those destined for the big screen. The unmatched performance and visual quality of Neo's deep-precision processing engine enhances the performance, features, and visual quality of any Mac or Windows editorial or effects application in a big way, supporting YUV, RGB(A), or RAW chroma formats up to 4K spatial resolution in real time on the timeline of your preferred NLE.
Cross-Platform compatibility: CineForm files are compatible on both Windows and Mac with your preferred software applications from Adobe, Apple, Autodesk, Avid, Sony, and virtually any other DirectShow (AVI) or QuickTime (MOV) application. Create on one platform, share on the other, even with distributed editing workflows. CineForm provides a free decoder on both Win and Mac called "NeoPlayer" to easily share content — even at 4K resolution.
First Light™: non-destructive, real-time primary color correction application for CineForm media plus text, graphics, and tools overlays. First Light works in parallel with your editing and effects software, and maintains color adjustments and overlays as Active Metadata™ with your media — all processed in real time so you never need to render, and consequently you never clip highlights. First Light color adjustments are immediately visible in any application that calls a CineForm file.
CineForm RAW workflow: Neo supports 2D and 3D CineForm RAW workflows with unrestricted spatial resolution inside your preferred NLE, whether shot directly using the SI-2K camera or converted into CineForm RAW from other RAW cameras.
DPX and RAW Format Converters: Most digital cinema Raw cameras acquire in formats unsuitable for high-performance online post-production. Source Raw formats from Red One, VR Phantom, and Arri can be converted into CineForm RAW files more suitable for high-performance online editorial. Also, converters between DPX / TIF files and CineForm files are included to ensure broadest industry compatibility.
HD Link/ReMaster: file conversion and image processing software converts most camera or file-based source formats into 10-bit CineForm Intermediate HD files while also performing valuable tasks such as telecine removal, deinterlacing, spatial resampling, and much more. Enables true 24p editing workflows from most HD sources. ReMaster on Mac also supports ProRes as a destination format.
3D Editing: create, edit, and adjust CineForm 3D files, the industry's most common 3D editorial format. Adjust convergence, camera zoom disparity, stereo color adjustment, add 3D titles and graphics overlays, and much more. Neo is the right 3D editing choice for all single-body dual-lens 3D cameras.
* Spatial resolution of Neo is actually unrestricted. Many NLEs can support workflows only up to 4K.

Because AValive believes in the American Way we feel we should determine what price you pay not someone else. AValive has the legal right to set our own prices independently, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be displayed. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's "minimum advertised price," the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you take further action, such as placing the item in your shopping cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage or emailing. The steps required depend on the details of the manufacturer's minimum advertised price policy. AValive won't require you to purchase the product. You can easily remove it from your cart if you decide not to buy it and no further information is kept.

All orders shipped to NC will be charged NC Sales Tax unless you are a reseller which will require a NC Dept Of Revenue Exemption Form to be faxed to us.
