ARRI certifies DVS CLIPSTER(r)
April 25, 2012 --
With the support of the ALEXA ARRIRAW format, DVS not only expands CLIPSTER's portfolio of supported file formats but also offers additional flexibility. Thanks to its unique hardware platform and its specially developed hardware accelerator, CLIPSTER(r) enables the real-time debayering of ALEXA RAW material in high quality. The RAW content can be directly displayed and edited in the timeline and played out as well. CLIPSTER(r) creates a single timeline from the RAW material and carries out decoding and demosaicing in real time up to 4K. CLIPSTER's Conforming Tool easily manages and conforms all data. The fast data transfer between the ARRI ALEXA and the DI workstation results in significant time savings for editors and colorists.
Henning Raedlein, Head of Digital Workflow Solutions at ARRI: "With DVS we have found a very reliable and innovative partner - for many years now. Thanks to this close cooperation, the technical realization worked at first go, which showed again when integrating the ARRIRAW support in CLIPSTER(r)."
