August 2, 2012

Right on time for IBC 2012, Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH will be presenting its studio-broadcast and post production solutions boasting the latest features and including product news. As a Media Production Hub, VENICE will be illustrating how a TV studio’s existing SDI structure can be migrated to the modern, file-based world. What’s more, DVS’s storage systems will come with a high-availability feature set while CLIPSTER will offer a significantly accelerated DCP remastering process.

Hanover/Amsterdam. At this year’s IBC, visitors will be able to see and learn about DVS’s latest range of new products at booth 7.E25. Once again, the focus will be on the topics of flexibility and performance enhancement covering all systems. With VENICE in particular, Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH is taking a decisive step: as a Media Production Hub, VENICE offers users from the areas of news production, post production and studio production as well as archiving and on-air playout incredible efficiency.

VENICE goes beyond accomodating traditional video server features such as HD-SDI ingest and studio playout to include intelligent file-based functions such as file ingest, transcoding, transwrapping and media transfer. At the same time, VENICE integrates seamlessly into any file-based broadcast environment thanks to its open platform and communication standards – in doing so providing file-based broadcasting with a new level of convenience and efficiency.

The CLIPSTER DI workstation incorporates a cutting-edge DCP QC Tool in the area of mezzanine-format generation which greatly accelerates performance in the DCP remastering process. Furthermore, the new render pipeline in CLIPSTER significantly boosts performance with processes running up to 8 times faster – a great benefit especially in DCI workflows with tight deadlines. CLIPSTER® supports mezzanine formats like IMF (Interoperable Master Format) and follows the latest IMF standardization developments offering, among other things, CPL version 5 support.

When it comes to DVS’s powerful storage solutions, SpycerBox will impress users with its maximum reliability and further capacity increase – with the SpycerBox Ultra now offering an increased capacity of 96 TB. In critical workflows in particular, where ultra-reliable and parallel mirroring – even in separate locations – of all data is demanded, SpycerBox is the ideal cost-effective solution thanks to its high-availability feature set. SpycerBox’s mirrored configuration prevents total outages, ensures performance remains unaffected even in the event of incidents and in doing so guarantees uninterrupted operation.

Bernhard Reitz, Head of Product Management at DVS: “The way in which the production environment of today’s TV studio operates is marked out by a mix of the traditional video world and the modern file-based world. At this year’s IBC in Amsterdam, DVS will be showcasing its VENICE Media Production Hub for TV studios – this way redefining the world of file-based broadcasting. CLIPSTER® and our storage solutions, including their enhancements, will continue to set industry standards.”
