Rohde & Schwarz to Showcase Clipster Mastering Workstation in Support of “Dolby Vision” Event in NYC

Columbia, Md., May 22, 2017- Premier transmitter, test and measurement and studio equipment manufacturer, Rohde & Schwarz, will showcase its Clipster mastering workstation as a Dolby Vision workflow partner of the conference, “Dolby Vision: Coloring the Future of Film and Television,” in New York City tomorrow, May 23rd. The event will start at 6pm at W New York – Union Square, 201 Park Avenue South.

Dolby Vision is a high dynamic range (HDR) standard that optimizes nature’s rich detail and vivid color to create a true-to-life viewing experience, just as the content creator intended. By fully leveraging the maximum potential of new cinema projection technology and new TVs’ display capabilities, Dolby Vision delivers high-dynamic-range (HDR) and wide-color-gamut content.

This event will feature panel discussions and presentations from content creators and postproduction professionals regarding new ways of working in HDR for TV and film. Top feature film and episodic TV producers will share insights from their experiences working in Dolby Vision.

“Dolby Vision: Coloring the Future of Film and Television” will include a reception to meet with Dolby Vision partners and explore their solutions including QC, color-grading systems, and HDR professional monitors.

“This is an ideal event to show off the benefits of Clipster for HDR,“ said Stephen Birdsong, Global Product Manager for Premium Content Solutions for Rohde & Schwarz. “As a mastering workstation, it sits at a vital stage of the post production process. A complete hardware and software finishing system, it manages all the tasks of a digital intermediate (DI) workflow in one box from capturing to mastering in several digital distribution formats. And it’s the only system in the world that can process uncompressed, multi-format file sequences in real time, even up to 4K. We’re thrilled to demonstrate what Clipster can do as part of a Dolby Vision production and post process.“

Current consumer video delivery and cinema standards are based on the limitations of previous technologies and require altering the original content before it can be reproduced for playback - dramatically reducing the range of colors, brightness, and contrast from that captured by modern cameras. Dolby Vision ensures creative teams that images will be reproduced faithfully on TVs, PCs, and mobile devices.

Clipster from Rohde & Schwarz is a mastering and distribution workstation for feature films and episodic TV. It provides a foundation for postproduction software vendors to build their services on. Supporting up to 4K120p, from a wide array of professional media file formats or baseband SDI, Clipster can support various stages of post production with its built in tools. Its services include: conforming, VTR emulation, non-linear editing, real-time video processing, advanced color format transformations, and an output wizard supports a myriad of professional formats to ensure reliable delivery. Operators can create digital cinema packages, interoperable mastering format packages (IMF), AS11 and AS02 packages in Clipster. In addition to creation of files, Clipster provides video playback for QC, review and approval; playout to tape via SDI; displayport; and HDMI with 16 channels of embedded SDI audio or 16 channels of AES/EBU.
