REVO advanced grade with Telecine control, 12 windows, 3 defocus. work w/URSA, Spirit,...
Most advanced Real Time Non Linear Software grading system
Revolution boasts the most comprehensive set of real time features on the market for in-context, non linear data grading. Pandora can provide a system specified with a combination of some or all of the features - see the creative layers page - and various I/O configurations.

All Pandora systems operate in real time all the time therefore any features purchased will always be balanced with sufficient processing power. There is no need to replace ALL the Revolution processors at any time as the architecture allows for 'mix and match' with the newer faster processors as they are released to the market - many commodity PC based systems are out of date soon after purchase (as with all PC's) quickly losing any competetive advantage over similar systems.
The subtlety, finesse and ergonomics are the signature of a Revolution system. We are continually developing new tools, exploring new approaches and refining existing features working in close partnership with our extensive user base. We are always grateful for constructive feedback and ideas and welcome suggestions to further enhance the Revolution experience. Please send your thoughts and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
Revolution offers the Colorist a subtlety and finesse in it's range of tools unsurpassed. Whilst developing the technology it has also been a primary goal that performance should not suffer at the hands of feature ambition – 20 years ago the industry was working in real time and Revolution is the only software colour corrector capable of still doing so with all the features in use.
As with all of Pandora's systems, the architecture of the features is modular – from a dailies feature set to a fully loaded 'hero' suite configuration the core architecture remains the same.
To simplify the feature selection process we offer 4 entry points to the Revolution:
Ideal for fast turn around dailies.
If paired with a T3 control surface it offers the most powerful, cost effective REAL TIME solution in the market.
With 3D look-up tables on the input and output, coupled with a read and write function for the ASC's CDL, bezier primaries, a six vector and a full power secondary inside and outside a shape this configuration is suited to dailies/rushes configurations.
This is Revolution stripped down for a purpose and being able to supply just the tools required is reflected in the price. The unit can easily be upgraded to add any or all of the additional layers without making any of the system redundant.
Ideal for dailies or match grades
This configuration is ideal for fast and cost effective turnaround of programmes without the niggles of time consuming preparation and ingest so often found with commodity PC solutions. Any of the configurations are equally at home working linearly or non linearly (with a YoYo) – instantly switch workflows from session to session without ingest delay!
Base Grade features a host of creative channels including a read and write function for the ASC's CDL, bezier primaries, 2 six vectors and a full power secondary inside and outside a shape. Additionally, there is a wipe function and FastTrack real time tracking making this system the foundation for the more complex feature sets that can be added at any time.
Easily network with other Revolution systems and share facility resources such as Noise Reducers.
For commercials and broadcast applications
For relighting and creative grades this feature set offers over 30 layers of complex secondaries including the ASC's CDL, FastTrack real time tracking, wipe and numerous primaries.
For in-context grading add a YoYo to create an 'open' suite that can work directly from a SAN or attached media in real time. And because Revolution processes in real time you can instantly flick between cuts, versions and make global changes without ever having to wait for a frame to render – we don't render we process in real time! This also means that we can work with a single copy of the data and apply metadata rather than storing multiple versions 'just in case the client changes their mind at the last moment'.
Expand the creative layers at anytime by adding more channels as the need dictates.
The 'hero' suite.
More and more complex secondaries completely in real time, this set up is for the creative with an unquenchable thirst for power.
Building upon the Creative Grade, this configuration adds yet more layers of secondaries along with defocus on the key and image. It is still possible to add more although we are confident this set up offers enough power for the majority of briefs.
