SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a leading provider of advanced visual processing solutions, has won the esteemed Advanced Imaging Society’s (AIS) 2019 Entertainment Technology Lumiere Award for its recently launched TrueCut® Motion Grading tools – a key element in the TrueCut Video Platform for Cinematic Motion and HDR announced by the Company earlier this year.
The TrueCut platform is the industry’s first solution to give filmmakers the ability to cinematically fine-tune Motion Blur, Judder and Frame-rate appearance. Used as a part of the creative process, TrueCut Motion Grading empowers filmmakers to deliver at a cinematically tuned high frame-rate, while filming at any frame-rate. This allows for a broader set of motion appearances than previously possible. The platform takes full advantage of today’s incredible cinema and home-entertainment displays, while also ensuring a consistent motion appearance across different devices and screens that is faithful to the original artistic intent.
“We were impressed with the TrueCut platform’s ability to empower filmmakers and extend creative control and reach of motion appearance,” said AIS President, Jim Chabin. “On behalf of AIS, I would like to congratulate Pixelworks on this award.”
The Advanced Imaging Society Technology Award program annually acknowledges and celebrates technologies and processes demonstrating both innovation and impact in advancing the future of the entertainment and media industries, including but not limited to theatrical, television broadcast, video, virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, stereoscopic 3D, themed attractions, and other forms of relevant content.
