Rohde & Schwarz DVS CLIPSTER now eight-times faster

Rohde & Schwarz DVS will be presenting version 5 of its CLIPSTER DI workstation. The DCP remastering process is now up to eight-times faster thanks to CLIPSTER’s new render pipeline. IBC visitors will also be able to see new 3D features and dynamic extensions to CLIPSTER. CLIPSTER version 5 features DCP test functions that enable Digital Cinema Packages not only to be verified to ensure they comply with all DCI standards, but also to see if they can be played back on popular DCI players. Furthermore, the user can make selective changes to every DCP-validation parameter in CLIPSTER to suit various test procedures. CLIPSTER supports mezzanine formats such as IMF (Interoperable Master Format). It complies with the latest developments in IMF standards and version 5 offers CPL (Composition Playlist) support among other features. CLIPSTER processes RAW data from leading cameras faster than realtime. Playback in up to 4K at 60 fps and 3D at up to 48 fps is also possible. In stereoscopic workflows, CLIPSTER offers automatic analysis, correction and quality control. It performs quality checks based on the 3D depth histogram and includes additional configurable thresholds for maximum disparities. Stefan Albertz, DVS Product Manager, said: "At this year’s IBC, we’ll be able to present a vast spectrum of product enhancements to all CLIPSTER users and interested parties that will make their everyday work in the areas of DCI, mezzanine formats and 3D considerably easier. Besides a fantastic acceleration in workflow processing, the automated procedures in version 5 of CLIPSTER will be the main highlight."7.E25
