Image Media Block

Nuvation designed a key component for a digital cinema projector. Nuvation developed the hardware to ingest, decode, watermark and play cinema video, all within a high-security boundary. The design uses FPGA-based video and audio processing, including JPEG2000 decoding, video watermarking, and 3D color enhancement.
