Tangent Devices Are Making Waves!

Tangent Devices, a manufacturer of control surfaces for colour grading software, have announced that it is expanding its product range with a new panel aimed at on-set grading and budget conscious users.
Stylish enough to look good in any grading suite and compact enough to be used for on-set grading, the Wave has all the controls you'd expect from a colour-grading panel without compromising on the essential ergonomics.
The panel features crisp, easy to read, cool-blue OLED displays and custom trackerball units based on a non-contacting optical pickup. With enough buttons and knobs to keep the most needed controls at the user's fingertips, the Wave will increase productivity and simplify their job, leaving them to get on with being creative.
Chris Rose, Technical Director at Tangent, said: "We created Wave in response to customer demand for a compact and lightweight control panel that would complement the entry-level pricing of software colour grading tools like ASSIMILATE's new SCRATCH CINE and Apple's Color, which is bundled with Final Cut Pro."
The design draws heavily on the experience gained from the highly successful CP100 and CP200 panel ranges which are the panel of choice for many software based grading solutions.
Rose said: "Wave is not intended to replace our existing ranges, it's just aimed at the more budget conscious user. We're well-known for manufacturing stylish, high quality panels and I believe with Wave we've managed to maintain this standard."
One of the first software companies to support the Wave is ASSIMILATE with their SCRATCH Digital Process Solution that includes colour-grading software.
Rose said: "ASSIMILATE has done a fantastic job of integrating Wave with their software. We were amazed at how quickly they managed to do this. Their responsiveness to the needs of the marketplace is impressive."
ASSIMILATE will be showing Wave and SCRATCH at various partner booths throughout the NAB 2008 show floor and in demo suites at the Renaissance Hotel.
The Wave was launched at NAB 2008 in Las Vegas and will begin shipping early this summer. The US list price will be $1,595.
Tangent Devices was founded in 2000 by Andy Knox and Chris Rose who have been involved with the video post industry for over 17 years. The company is based near Luton, a few miles north of London in the UK.
