Blackmagic Design announced DaVinci Resolve for Microsoft Windows,
which now enables customers to use a wide range of hardware for building color correction systems.
DaVinci Resolve for Microsoft Windows will be accompanied by the Mac OS X version, so when a customer purchases DaVinci Resolve, they can choose which operating system they want to use and install either one. Customers can potentially choose to use a Windows desktop computer in the office with powerful multiple GPU processing; at any time, the customer can unplug the dongle and plug into one of the latest stylish Mac OS X MacBook Pro computers when on set.
DaVinci Resolve lets customers move between either operating system at any time without the extra expense of purchasing a second copy of the software.
As a reward for current DaVinci Resolve customers, any customer who has purchased the Mac OS X version of DaVinci Resolve will be able to keep using the same dongle for the Windows version of DaVinci Resolve. They will be able to download the Windows version once released.
DaVinci Resolve will be available in three models. DaVinci Resolve Lite, the current free version, will be available in both Windows and Mac OS X downloads. DaVinci Resolve Software for €695 will be available for both Mac OS X and Windows. Customers will receive both operating systems for the one purchase. DaVinci Resolve with the full colorist designed control surface will be available with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux software in the box, allowing the customer to choose any of three operating systems to build a color correction system.
DaVinci Resolve for Microsoft Windows will be released Q1 of 2012 and will be included with all current DaVinci Resolve models.
