Now Available: The new Silverstack 5

Pomfort releases a major upgrade to its professional media management software Silverstack

Munich (February 10th, 2016) – Pomfort, a global provider of professional software solutions for media and color management in motion pictures and broadcast production, today announced the major upgrade to its flagship product Silverstack. The new version 5 focuses on the evolving role color occupies in today’s film production workflows and includes essential features that make it extremely easy to manage and create looks in combination with source media on set and beyond.

Silverstack is the clever software for media management that now also performs tasks to efficiently supply looks for QC, dailies creation, and for editorial. Featuring the automated matching of media and color information in one clip library, Silverstack significantly facilitates and accelerates workflows in film productions of all sizes. Features like the new grading controls, the import option for single looks or archives from LiveGrade or other tools, the extensive matching wizard, and the customizable reports now with color information, significantly help the production team in their daily activities.

Silverstack’s powerful integration with common third-party tools like DaVinci Resolve or AVID Media Composer enable to transfer media and color information in a streamlined way so that customers do not waste time anymore going through confusing paper stacks. In addition, the opportunity to generate customizable clip reports with just a few clicks gives the entire production team a quick and detailed overview about all relevant production data and hereby tremendously supports them in their creative processes.

The newly built-in output for HD-SDI monitoring meets on-set staff’s common requirements for checking source material. Silverstack XT enables teams to review clips in full 10-bit quality by using HD-SDI playout devices from Blackmagic Design (with AJA support coming soon). Furthermore, frame lines can be used to display clips with a variety of aspect ratios in the Silverstack Media Player, on HD-SDI monitors, and for the transcoded clips.

Silverstack has been one of the leading tools for media management in film productions over the last years, and has been used on thousands of feature films, television projects, and commercials such as Steve Jobs, Ant Man and many more.

“We have been Silverstack users for years, and it is impressive to experience how every upgrade facilitates the way how we are able to manage media and looks across teams or individually,” says Matthieu Straub, onset workflow specialist at Be4Post in Paris. I very much like the integration with LiveGrade that significantly increases the productivity working with colors at the film set.

“The feedback for Silverstack v5 related to look management features has been overwhelming already in the beta phase. Customers are thrilled with the option to handle clip and look information in one library”, says Patrick Renner, product manager at Pomfort. “This really fastens production processes and enables frictionless transfers of all necessary data to subsequent production steps such as dailies creation. Unlike other tools Silverstack is a software that enables open media workflows so that customers now have even more options to work on their feature films, TV episodes, and commercials.”

• Extensive look management and color grading functionalities
