DVS to showcase file-based broadcasting, 3D at Nab 2012

MUMBAI: DVS, the manufacturer of hardware and software solutions, will be presenting its latest products at this year’s National Association of Broadcasters (Nab) show in Las Vegas that takes place from 16-19 April.

DVS will present version 5.0 of its DI workstation Clipster. Along with its Digital Cinema Mastering Tool, Clipster supports mezzanine files such as IMF, providing the digital master as a file package with different video, audio, subtitles or closed caption tracks. In combination with Raw cameras, Clipster assures massive flexibility – e.g. by supporting Raw material from Red, ARRI and Sony cameras.

Furthermore, Clipster supports formats like Panasonic AVC-Ultra, Sony SR, Apple ProRes 422 and Avid DNxHD, and is capable of reading and writing OpenEXR. Equipped with state-of-the-art hardware, Clipster offers security and speed.

DVS’s multi-channel broadcast server Venice follows the company’s philosophy of openness. In heterogeneous, file-based production environments, users benefit from seamless processes and thereby from remarkable workflow efficiency. Venice’s broadcasting flexibility is shown in various tasks like ingest, transcoding or play-out, since they can be freely structured and processed automatically.

Venice is now available in a 2U chassis offering space for up to 9 TB of internal storage and up to 4 video channels. Equipped as standard with 10 Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 interfaces, the DVS video server meets
revolutionary standards for the fastest data processing and transfer speeds, all in a small form factor.

The DVS storage systems serve as a platform when it comes to creating a storage architecture for broadcast and high-end post production environments. Clients the company says benefit from system performance, especially from the SpycerBox family which has increased its capacity up to 72 TB. Even in mission-critical processes, the DVS SpycerBox allows for high-availability scenarios. SpycerBox can be integrated as a NAS or a San configuration – or as a combination of the two – into existing system architectures, providing users with a low-latency end-to-end solution that forms the core of their infrastructure.

CinePlay, a new member to DVS’s sophisticated family of video boards, has been specially designed for customers who want to develop a cinema player that will play out material as specified by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative). Equipped with two HD-SDI inputs, two HDMI links and powerful decompression hardware, a single CinePlay board can play out 3D material in 2K 4:4:4 at 24 fps for each eye.
