Below is the press release for Assimilate Scratch 9.3.

Assimilate integrates NDI, Light Illusion and OmniScope into Scratch, Play Pro 9.3

SAN JOSE, CA – Assimilate (www.assimilateinc.com) announced the availability of Scratch and Play Pro 9.3, which will greatly improve functionality and efficiency in production and post-production workflows. Play Pro is a professional player for VFX test reports, ProRes RAW QC and real ProRes transcoding on Windows. Version 9.3 integrates Newtek NDI, Light Illusion ColourSpace CMS, and Time with Pixels' Nobe Omniscope for greater efficiency in the camera-to-post pipeline while working in distributed / remote workflows.

With NDI, users can easily and directly connect Scratch to various apps like SetStream.io, OBS, or even Skype and Zoom, without cables, wires or delays. (View demo: https://vimeo.com/476188656). Light Illusion's ColourSpace patch generator is now natively integrated with Scratch and Play Pro 9.3 to ensure 100 percent accuracy in 32-bit patch generation for monitor profiles and a consistent color pipeline. Time in Pixels' new scoping software, Nobe OmniScope, is now integrated into the Scratch tools so that both can now run in parallel on the same workstation without the need for an external image analyzer or additional video Io hardware.

Scratch now includes a new CIE plot diagram in its internal areas and has improved ProRes RAW decoding capabilities. DITs can now define exactly how to process RAW footage in Scratch by pre-setting the default RAW media settings in the project settings. In addition, Assimilate has renamed its Scratch Web online review tool to Dailies Online and doubled the available cloud storage for all users at no additional cost. Using the on-screen annotation features recently introduced by Scratch, DITs and finishing houses can not only share daily newspapers, but also increase their productivity in VFX review sessions.


Available immediately with the Creative Reboot, Scratch 9.3 starts at $ 59 monthly and $ 495 annually. Play Pro 9.3 starts at $ 10 monthly and $ 99 annually.

"Nobe OmniScope has proven to be the fastest, smoothest, and most accurate end-to-end suite of domains available for MacOS and Windows," said Jeff Edson, CEO of Assimilate. "No matter whether you are working on daily newspapers, performing color corrections in HDR, analyzing reference images or performing live sorting on set – Nobe OmniScope is a valuable addition to the native toolset in Scratch."

"Scratch 9.3's native NDI integration increases the speed and flexibility of my streaming sessions without purchasing I / O hardware or LUT boxes," said Jeff Sousa, colorist at Dungeon Beach in New York. “This allows Scratch to directly uplink to SetStream.io via the lightning-fast WebRTC protocol, which enables me to interact with my customers without latency and with excellent image quality. And since NDI is just another output to Scratch, I can control exactly what the client sees, turn masks on and off, and even apply a stream-only display LUT to remotely calibrate the display device. If I stream over NDI, I can also go back to After Effects for rotoscoping or Avid Media Composer for customization, and the client won't lose a signal in its program, making Scratch 9.3 a powerful finishing hub for remote workflows.
