Stand SL6815, NAB 2012
From April 16-19, DVS will showcase its flagship product CLIPSTER® packed with an extended stereoscopic features set. Along with support for mezzanine formats, CLIPSTER® provides massive flexibility, supporting RAW material from several cameras.
At NAB booth SL6815, DVS will present version 5.0 of its award-winning DI workstation CLIPSTER® introducing an impressive set of dynamic enhancements and features in the 3D arena. Moreover, CLIPSTER® follows the company’s philosophy of openness, maximizing its number of supported formats and codecs.
CLIPSTER® makes working with stereoscopic workflows much easier and guarantees incredible time savings. At NAB 2012, visitors to the DVS booth will experience a sophisticated 3D workflow thanks to CLIPSTER’s integrated STAN (Stereoscopic Analyzer) software and thanks to its state-of-the-art hardware and software set-up. STAN’s exceptional algorithm analyzes and corrects the 3D material geometrically, including keystone correction. The handling of independent streams and their perfect synchronization offer time-savings even when processing tasks with the highest frame-rates. Users can apply the overlay’s difference and anaglyph modes to control the result, or consult the 3D depth histogram for quickly readable depth allocation – including configurable thresholds for maximum disparities.
Along with its acclaimed Digital Cinema Mastering Tool, CLIPSTER® supports mezzanine files such as IMF (Interoperable Master Format, in line with the latest published specification from IMF/ETC), providing the digital master as a file package with different video, audio, subtitles or closed caption tracks. The integrated SOAP (Service Oriented Architecture Protocol) interface provides automated control from third-party applications.
In combination with RAW cameras, CLIPSTER® assures massive flexibility – e.g. by supporting RAW material from RED®, ARRI and now also Sony cameras. The CLIPSTER® accelerator board easily decodes, demosaics, and processes RAW content faster than real-time.
Furthermore, CLIPSTER® supports formats like Panasonic AVC-Ultra, Sony SR, Apple ProRes 422 and Avid DNxHD®, and is capable of reading and writing OpenEXR. Equipped with state-of-the-art hardware, CLIPSTER® offers tremendous security and speed.
Stefan Albertz, Product Manager at DVS: “The growing market for DCP along with increasing digital demands has led us to equip CLIPSTER® with new, exciting and first-class enhancements. Besides DCP, which has established itself for the distribution of cinema content, IMF is going to become another major format which is also supported by our future-oriented systems.”
