IRIDAS is a German software company that was founded in Munich in 2000. It developed the SpeedGrade and Lumetri color correction tools that were acquired by Adobe Systems.[1]


IRIDAS' first product was FrameCycler, a real-time playback and review system which was released as a Free Edition in 2000 and as a commercial Studio Edition in 2001. In 2003, IRIDAS released SpeedGrade RT, the first non-destructive GPU-based color grading system.[1]

In October 2009, IRIDAS announced that all its tools had been updated to take advantage of increased memory and speed of 64-bit systems, after a 2-years of optimization work.[2] In spring 2011, IRIDAS unveiled the Lumetri color engine.[1]

On September 8, 2011, Adobe announced that it had acquired IRIDAS' technologies to incorporate into its product line.[3]
