DxO products at Photokina

DxO Labs today announced version 2.0 of its flagship product , a new module for DxO Optics Pro that allows RAW files to benefit directly from the image enhancement capabilities of DxO Optics Pro. Touted as a "breakthrough raw converter in terms of image quality," the engine features new demosaicing1 technology that produces sharper and more detailed images using 16-bit processing. Both DxO Optics Pro 2.0 and DxO Raw Engine will be showcased at Photokina in Cologne, Germany on Sept. 28-Oct. 3 in Hall 10.1, Stand E18.

The DxO Raw Engine also dramatically reduces conversion artifacts typically produced by current raw converters and offers several filters for automatic correction, including blur, distortion, vignetting and lateral chromatic aberration as well as user controls for white balance and exposure control, full ICC Color profile management, etc.

DxO Optics Pro v2.0 brings RAW support (via the aforementioned engine) and workflow improvements, full ICC profile management, improved EXIF data handling (for both JPEG as well as RAW), live histogram display with individual color channels, thumbnail view with pre-flight status indications, a new preview window to apply various settings, and more.

DxO Raw Engine will be available mid-October 2004 for both Macintosh and Windows. As an introductory offer, DxO Raw Engine will be free with DxO Optics Pro until the end of November to both new and existing users. As of December 1, it will be priced at $120(99). DxO Optics Pro 2.0 will also be available in mid-October 2004. All registered users of DxO Optics Pro 1.x will receive a free upgrade to version 2.0. Pricing is $50 before the purchase of any relevant modules for DxO Camera Body Correction.
