YoYotta presented the latest version of the YoYo postproduction workflow system at IBC 2011 in Amsterdam, Sept. 9-13. Already deployed around the world at major postproduction facilities, the new YoDailies application was recently installed at a major Los Angeles studio for file-based digital dailies workflows.
This year at show, the YoYo suite drew a lot of attention at both the Tangent Wave and Sony booths.
At the Tangent Wave stand (7.B16), YoYotta demonstrated the new YoMobile configuration, which makes use of the new Thunderbolt 10 Gbps interface. YoYo connects to RAID and HD monitoring via Thunderbolt, so that YoDailies is even more portable for on-set use. YoMobile was shown with the latest Tangent control panels.
YoYo for the F65
At the very busy Sony stand (12.A10) the company presented the new YoYo workflows for the F65 camera and the SR Master format.
The YoYo platform allows users to search for material, transcode and standardize multi-format projects and ensure that the required metadata is made available for online processes. YoYo can resize, colour manage and prepare material for deliverables without tying up expensive online suites. YoYo also allows offline and online comparisons with multiple wipes and mixes ensuring conforms are accurate every time, making it a workhorse system at facilities all over the world.
YoYo has been adopted in major studios, labs and post facilities around the world. This versatile system supports multiple workflows within one application, shortening the learning curve, and delivering savings in terms of personnel, time and cost.
YoDailies is a sophisticated dailies system. The new version adds full colour management and grading capabilities with reference frame match grading and the ability to export grades as CDL, 1D and 3D LUT's. It offers full LUT control on the system's I/O, timecode burn-ins and auto 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.
"YoDailies offers comprehensive dailies workflow system and many new features at IBC this year," said Adam Welsh, sales director at YoYotta. "Instead of mixing and matching tools, or investing in expensive dedicated transcoding hardware, production companies are increasingly going for the efficiency and economy of the YoYo software."
YoYo can ingest from tape and film and import file-based content including Alexa ARRIRAW, ProRes, RED R3D and DSLR Raw and H.264 formats. YoYo also outputs file and tape deliverables at the end of the creative process.
