Phase One®, a world leader in digital camera backs and DSLR RAW conversion software, welcomes Adobe’s latest initiative, the Digital Negative Specification (DNG), as an important step in facilitating the wider usage of raw formats. Phase One is announcing today the support of the Adobe DNG specification in upcoming releases of its highly respected C1-RAW Workflow Software in 2005.
Today, the C1 range of RAW workflow software has native support for most professional DSLR cameras. Adding the DNG format, Phase One will be able to offer our end users yet another option in regards to taking advantage of working with RAW captures and building an efficient RAW workflow. Phase One will continue to support the native RAW format of existing professional DSLR cameras as well as future DSLR cameras, however we look to the DNG format as a means of bringing additional camera support to our C1 users in a more timely fashion, while maintaining the image quality that Phase One is known for.
Henrik Håkonsson, Phase One CEO states:” Every new initiative in the high-end digital imaging market is of interest to Phase One, and that certainly goes for the DNG initiative from Adobe. Phase One will continue to be in close contact with Adobe regarding its further development on DNG. C1, is a prime innovator of RAW conversion software in the professional market, and our promise to the marketplace is to provide professional photographers with the most beneficial workflow and superior image quality. Based on these promises, we have many new features and functional improvements in our long term road map for C1, which now includes support for the DNG file format in future releases.
“Our motivation for creating the Digital Negative Specification was to give photographers complete control over their image workflow, and to ensure that their great work is around for future generations,” said Kevin Connor, director of product management at Adobe Systems Incorporated. “The Digital Negative specification unlocks the potential of raw images by making them freely supportable by a range of applications, and we’re pleased that Phase One has seen the value of adding this format to their well-regarded software.” To learn more about Phase One’s products please visit our web site at www.phaseone.com.
