San Jose, Calif. – Adobe, the San Jose-based web publishing software giant, said it has acquired technology from Amsterdam-based Iridas, a developer of tools for digital color grading and enhancement of professional film and video content, including stereoscopic technology.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Adobe said it plans to integrate the technology with its existing video tools, creating tools that allow video editors to manipulate color and light for any type of content, including professional film and television.
Jim Guerard, the vice president and general manager for professional video and audio at Adobe’s Creative and Media Solutions unit, said the integration “helps us continue to deliver high quality tools and redefines how professionals in the motion picture and video industry view, manipulate, enhance and produce their digital creations from script to screen.”
