Head Quarter Relies On R&S CLIPSTER System

News Image
Film post-production company Head Quarter has utilised the R&S CLIPSTER mastering system from Rohde & Schwarz for classic playouts. The company uses the system to create digital cinema package and interoperable master format content, including subtitles for cinema productions and for film exploitation.

Since October of this year, Head Quarter has been using the new version 6. The tool allows high dynamic range (HDR) workflows for Dolby Vision (cinema and home), HDR10 and hybrid log gamma (HLG), enabling Head Quarter to meet customers' demand for HDR content.

Due to HDR, the challenge in the future will be to create multiple derivatives of a master for each production. The new color processing engine of R&S CLIPSTER performs this task. It enables material to be processed with 32-bit floating-point support. As a result, content can be directly exported from the grading system to R&S CLIPSTER, easing the load on the color grading system so that it can concentrate on its core task. In addition, only one uncompressed master for all derivatives is required. 

Andreas Froehlich, Managing Director of Head Quarter, said: "The performance of the new R&S CLIPSTER generation for utilizing HDR capacities convinced us. Since 2013 we have been using the academy color encoding system (ACES) standard created by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, so we are all the more delighted that the mastering station now also supports this standard. It will therefore remain an integral part of our production environment."
