NAB 2011: DVS strengthens its activities in broadcast and post production(March 15, 2011)
At NAB, DVS will be presenting the many new features of its CLIPSTER system including its extended mezzanine workflows which support MXF AS-02 as well as IMF (Interoperable Master Format). For the first time, this will enable post production customers to add different tracks to a digital master in accordance with the IMF standard. This includes video, audio, subtitles as well as closed captions, allowing different deliverables to be generated for DVD, Blu-ray, SDTV, HDTV, IPTV and many other formats. The JPEG2000 RGB/YUV data is compressed faster than real-time at a rate of 500 Mbit/s. CLIPSTER also features an expanded toolset in the area of 3D. With its high-quality hardware, CLIPSTER generates 3D DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) in real time, speeding up 3D subtitling in 4K as well as DCI mastering. To assist with this, it features stereoscopic correction tools which can be automated or controlled manually.
VENICE, the multi-channel video server for the broadcast market, now also implements file-based workflows, supporting both Apple Final Cut Pro® as well as Avid ISIS with Avid Interplay PAM (Production Asset Management). The codec variety and multi-channel capabilities of VENICE provide users with maximum flexibility, even allowing video content to be edited directly on the server using Final Cut Pro while recording is still happening. The combination of DVS and Avid systems allows users to perform live video ingest via HD-SDI and file ingest of Professional DiscsTM and P2 storage media using VENICE.
The latest version of the DVS storage solution SpycerBox optimizes both the speed and efficiency of customer workflows. Once again, DVS has increased the capacity of its SpycerBox to 72 TB, enabling its customers to enjoy the perfect balance between speed and performance.
The latest member of the renowned Atomix boards family will debut at NAB. The high-performance Atomix HDMI video board meets all the requirements of high-end film, HDTV post production and broadcast applications as well as demanding presentations, and comes equipped with an extended range of functions. In addition to full HD 3D, the four HDMI ports also handle other demanding tasks associated with modern image editing.
