DVS Will Have Upgraded Clipster, SSD SpycerBox, and Entry-Level Venice Element at NAB
DI Workstation Now Supports 48fps HFR 3D, AS-02 and IMF Formats
Rohde & Schwarz DVS is showing new versions of multiple products at NAB, including an upgrade that makes its Clipster DI workstation HFR 3D capable.
The latest version of Clipster allows digital-cinema mastering at up to 96 fps, supporting the dual 48 fps streams of current-gen HFR 3D acquisition. DVS developed the new HFR capabilities of the Clipster in collaboration with Park Road Post Production, which used it on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. (If James Cameron decides to shoot Avatar 2 at 60 fps, another upgrade may well be in the offing.) The company will also be talking up Clipster's support for the AS-02 and IMF file formats, including a new IMF wizard that guides users through steps for generating an IMF-compliant interoperable master package, or IMP.
DVS will also be showing a version of its SpycerBox storage system built with SSDs, increasing internal data rates to a max of 12 GB/sec for studio operations and demanding post-production workflows. A new web-based management GUI for the Spycerbox will also be shown at NAB. The SpycerBox can be integrated with the company's Venice module to enable capture or play-out of a variety of video formats.
Speaking of the Venice lineup, DVS is also introducing Venice Element, a new entry-level playout solution from its Venice line-up for live studio operations.
