Rushes invests in Digital Vision's new range of DVNR products Stockholm, December 19, 2001 - The London based company Rushes, one of Europe's top post production houses, has signed an order for the AGR-IV Grain and Noise Reduction system from the Swedish company Digital Vision AB. The order is for one High Definition and two Standard Definition AGR- IV Grain and Noise Reducers. The AGR-IV is Digital Vision's fourth generation real time film grain and electronic noise reducer and was released in late November of this year. "The addition of the Digital Vision AGR-IV to the Rushes facility ensures that we are offering the highest picture quality available to our Telecine and Tape to Tape customers. The increase in High Definition work has highlighted the need for an advanced grain reducer capable of dealing with film images at this resolution." said Tim Wharton, Technical director at Rushes. "We are delighted to see that the AGR-IV has taken off so quickly and that a company of Rushes standing has decided to replace their existing noise reduction systems with our latest technology," said Per-Olov Essehorn, Director of Sales at Digital Vision. "We are confident that the AGR-IV will become the new benchmark for grain reduction in the post production environment where real time processing and artefact free performance are imperative" AGR-IV is aimed for film, videotape restoration and MPEG pre-processing. The AGR-IV's advanced motion processing and newly developed adaptive 3-D filters including and Edge Preserving Spatial Filter allow facilities to produce even cleaner and sharper pictures from film and video originated material than ever before.
