The InDaw workstation made a name for itself by speeding-up image and sound syncing that SD dailies required. IndawPass now handles ALL video formats in tape to tape sessions.
IndawPass burns characters, VITC and VANCs on HD & SD tape masters and copies .
It converts, 16/24-bit 48/96kHz poly or mono files from Cantar, SD 7xx, Deva, and other multitrack recorders into stereo 16-bit BWF files that image editors require.
Right after a telecine session Indaw realigns the take in-points, adds its post-synced Audio-TC to generate clean and complete Video/Audio/Keycode ALE transfer lists which speed-up NLE digitization.
Indaw tidies up the many LTC and audio sampling rate mismatches post engineers encounter.
While monitoring the audio, the operator can on-the-fly insert 'Prelocators' on slate announces, he also can enter the scene/take IDs and wild-sound tags. 'SlateFinder' detects the clapsticks with better than human precision and stores operator entered metadata in ALE and FLeX lists.
A unique feature: Indaw syncs the audio in less than 40ms at the head of each video take; this allows for uninterrupted post-syncing of video on both SD and HD tapes.
Whatever the audio and video standards, Indaw eliminates jitter and glitches: a sound recorded in a PAL environment can be dubbed on a drop-frame NTSC video tape. PostSync sorts wild tracks and records them at the end of video tape dailies; their Audio-TC is correlated to the tape Video-TC, and inserted into the ALE transfer list.
IndawPass moves the take in-points on both Keycode and Video-TC, adds the Audio-TC of the slates, and creates a rejuvenated and ultra precise ALE transfer list.
A very useful feature for HD to SD: IndawPass converts downconverted PAL lists back to their HD24 'father' and from there to NTSC. Exported to the editing system, these ALE lists ensure instant auto-sync between images and BWF audio files.
While building a database carrying the TC of the player, IndawPass gets the LTC of the recorder to build the 'final' database based upon the TC of the 'color-correct' media.
