DxO Labs in receivership / bankruptcy
« on: April 23, 2018, 07:36:47 PM »

My first post (Hello!). DxO Labs has apparently gone into receivership/bankruptcy proceedings according to a report over on dpreview. I've been a big fan of theirs for a long time so will be interesting to see what happens, in particular after having picked up Nik collection.

I never bothered to try it when I found out they didn't support Pro Photo, I think it was. If it wasn't that , it was something equally stupid.

Latest info.  Obviously Chapter 11 is USA so I guess they are trying to communicate the situatio.  Not many would understand the French legal reference:
Greetings.

On March 7, 2018, DxO Labs chose to file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection and is now in the process of restructuring the business.

We are very confident that this procedure, which should not last for more than a few more weeks, will not affect our customers in any way. In fact, we are pleased to announce the following upcoming product releases:

    In June, we will release a free update (version 1.2) of our flagship software, DxO PhotoLab. Recently awarded the TIPA 2018 Award for Best Image Processing Software, this latest version of DxO PhotoLab will include improved local correction features, and will add support for 7 cameras, including the Canon EOS 2000D and the Sony A7 III. This release will also be an opportunity for us to reiterate our commitment to the “perpetual license” model (as opposed to a subscription model) that allows our customers to update their products according to their needs, rather than in a constrained manner.
    In June, we will release the new version of the Nik Software Collection, which DxO acquired from Google at the end of 2017. Much awaited by the Nik software community, this first “by DxO” version focuses on fixing bugs that up until now could disrupt the user experience, as well as on ensuring full compatibility with the latest Mac OS and PC platforms.

Thank you for your understanding and confidence,

The DxO Team

Maybe they paid too much to Google for the NIK software and are trying to trim debt.

I think they are paying the price for their hardware endeavor.

On the software side they have never been this relevant. The integration of U point technology (though imperfect in this first iteration) makes DxO lab the most credible one stop alternative to PS. Add their best in class optical correction and best in class noise reduction and you have something truly special.

Cheers,
Bernard

Do they support Pro Photo? I dismissed them ten years ago because they weren't relevant at all.

Did you mean ProPhotoRGB?
