DVS and zweiB: Strong Partnership at FILMFEST MUNCHEN

The successful cooperation between Rohde Schwarz DVS GmbH and zweiB GmbH enables the creation and validation of the Digital Cinema Packages at the International FILMFEST MÜNCHEN.

Hanover. Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH (DVS) in Hanover and Munich-based zweiB GmbH are supporting the International FILMFEST MÜNCHEN (June 28th - July 6th) by equipping it with three DI workstations CLIPSTER® as well as the flexible storage solution SpycerBox from DVS. Even before the opening of Germany’s biggest summer film festival, zweiB’s editors use CLIPSTER® for the creation of the Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs). zweiB applies the DI workstation for editing the film material and converting content of HDCAM/HDCAM SR tapes into DCPs. SpycerBox is responsible for saving the sensitive data.

With its range of formats, versatility and reliability, the CLIPSTER® DI workstation offers considerable advantages to the FILMFEST MÜNCHEN: Covering a plethora of formats, CLIPSTER® converts and processes the digitally submitted films quickly; as CLIPSTER® supports a wide range of formats, films that have been submitted digitally can be converted and processed quickly. Furthermore, the DI workstation enables high-quality DCPs to be generated faster than in real time. On top of that, the DCP’s quality and conformity can then be checked using the DCI validation tool to ensure they meet the DCI standard.

Since SpycerBox can be integrated seamlessly as a NAS or a SAN configuration - or as a combination of the two - into existing infrastructures, it seamlessly fits into the festival’s system Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH Katrin Brussa Louise Christensen Krepenstr. 8 30165 Hannover Germany Phone: +49 511 67 80 7-0 Email: press.dvs@rohde-schwarz.com Internet: www.dvs.de Press ReleasePress Release: DVS and zweiB - Strong Partnership at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN 2 of 3 architecture in Munich.
