NAB YoYotta showed the latest version of the YoYo postproduction workflow system at
NAB, and brought a new system for review reels, YoDailies.
|The YoYo software suite automates file-based data management. This year YoYotta introduced YoDailies, a new system for creating review reels, generating dailies with timecode burn-ins and audio syncing for multiple deliverable formats. YoDailies works with digitally acquired source material, as well as scanned film footage. The new application is designed for use both on set and during postproduction.
Visitors could see YoYo at the Cintel booth including a demo of YoYo archiving material and metadata directly to LTO5 utilising the open LTFS standard. The YoYo platform allows users to search for material, transcode and standardize multi-format projects and ensure that all required metadata is retained for online processes. YoYo can resize, colour manage and prepare material for deliverables without involving online suites. YoYo also allows offline and online comparisons with multiple wipes and mixes ensuring conforms are accurate.
YoYo can ingest from tape and film and import file-based content including Alexa ARRIRAW, ProRes, RED R3D, DSLR Raw and H.264 formats. YoYo also outputs file and tape deliverables at the end of the creative process.
YoYo runs on Mac OSX. Along with the new YoDailies, the full suite includes YoProject, YoCapture and YoSource. YoProject manages file-based data. YoCapture allows users to ingest video sources, and YoSource is designed for conforming and outputting video masters. YoYo is available from YoYotta at www.yoyotta.com, or as part of the Pandora Revolution Express colour grading system.
