Press Release

PMA—Orlando, Florida, February 25, 2006 – DxO Labs DxO Optics Pro v3.5 Digital SLR and lens automatic image quality enhancement software is now available for download at the company’s e-store.

”The quality of the corrections and the final results look better than ever with this new version,” said Luc Marin, vice president of the Photography Business Unit at DxO Labs.

DxO Optics Engine Version 2

DxO Labs’ award-winning optical quality brimprovement algorithms are at the heart of the value provided by DxO Optics Pro. Unlike manual or simplistic solutions, DxO Optics Engine takes into account all relevant parameters to automatically enhance the optical performance of the camera and lens.

The new version of DxO Optics Engine included in DxO Optics Pro v3.5 brings even greater value to demanding photographers worldwide:

• DxO Optics Engine v2 includes expanded capabilities for removing unwanted color fringes in the image. Previously limited to removing Lateral Chromatic Aberrations, DxO Optics Engine v2 now automatically processes a much greater range of color fringes, including fringes known under the term of “purple fringing”.

• DxO Optics Engine v2 can preserve up to 40% more image surface when eliminating geometric distortion.

• DxO Optics Engine v2 now also enables user-defined cropping for a more efficient workflow.

• DxO Optics Engine v2 provides an increased level of image detail level through improvements to DxO Optics Engine Lens Softness removal capabilities

Increased processing speed by up to 100% on multi-processor computers
Users of the current version already know that DxO Optics Pro is extremely efficient at grouping many key imaging tasks in an automatic workflow: RAW conversion, noise removal, optical corrections, exposure optimization, etc.

DxO Optics Pro v3.5 goes further by taking advantage of computers with multiple processors (Macintosh or Windows) to increase image batch processing speed. Initial tests have shown that DxO Optics Pro v3.5 can achieve a 100% processing time gain compared to version 3.0. DxO Optics Pro v3.5 also includes user interface improvements to make image selection and viewing easier, faster and more efficient.

Unrestricted access to DxO Lens Modules
The license fee for DxO Optics Pro now includes unrestricted access to all DxO Lens Modules for a given set of supported camera bodies, including the recently added Nikon D200 and Canon EOS-1D Mark II N and an initial selection of lenses. DxO Optics Pro Standard Edition supports advanced amateur Digital SLRs, while DxO Optics Pro Elite Edition also includes support for professional Digital SLRs. There are now more than 250 DxO Lens Modules available. The full list is available on
