Range of innovations from DVS27 March 2012
At NAB 2012, DVS will present version 5.0 of its award-winning DI workstation CLIPSTER. Visitors to the DVS booth will experience a sophisticated 3D workflow thanks to STAN (Stereoscopic Analyser) software that is now integrated into CLIPSTER. STAN’s exceptional algorithm analyses and corrects the 3D material geometrically, including keystone correction. Along with its acclaimed Digital Cinema Mastering Tool, CLIPSTER supports mezzanine files such as IMF, providing the digital master as a file package with different video, audio, subtitles or closed caption tracks. In combination with RAW cameras, CLIPSTER assures massive flexibility – e.g. by supporting RAW material from RED, ARRI and Sony cameras. 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. DVS’s multi-channel broadcast server VENICE follows the company’s philosophy of openness. In heterogeneous, file-based production environments, users benefit from processes and thereby from remarkable workflow efficiency. VENICE’s broadcasting flexibility is shown in various tasks like ingest, transcoding or playout, since they can be freely structured and processed automatically. VENICE is now available in a 2U chassis offering space for up to 9 TB of internal storage and up to 4 video channels. Equipped as standard with 10 Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 interfaces, the DVS video server meets revolutionary standards for the fastest data processing and transfer speeds, all in a small form factor. Thanks to their openness and high performance, the DVS storage systems are the perfect platform when it comes to creating a storage architecture for broadcast and high-end post production environments. Clients benefit from unparalleled system performance, especially from the SpycerBox family that has increased its capacity up to 72 TB. Even in mission-critical processes, the DVS SpycerBox allows for high-availability scenarios. SpycerBox can be integrated as a NAS or a SAN configuration – or as a combination of the two – into existing system architectures, providing users with a low-latency end-to-end solution that forms the core of their infrastructure. CinePlay, a new member to DVS’s sophisticated family of video boards, has been specially designed for customers who want to develop a cinema player that will play out material as specified by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative). Equipped with two HD-SDI inputs, two HDMI links and powerful decompression hardware, a single CinePlay board can play out 3D material in 2K 4:4:4 at 24 fps for each eye. Bernhard Reitz, head of Product Management at DVS: "Visitors to NAB have high expectations on quality and are always impressed by DVS’s latest technological breakthroughs. Once again, DVS delivers unique and future-oriented solutions for post and broadcast workflows. We are looking forward to presenting CLIPSTER and VENICE with our newest enhancements and dynamic features."
