Advanced Digital Enhances HD Post Services

Advanced Digital Services has announced the launch of the latest generation CLIPSTER DI offering at its facility, which will add to the diverse array of high-end post-production services currently offered by the company.
CLIPSTER, DVS' flagship workflow product, is an award-winning solution that allows the user to complete a variety of DI (Digital Intermediate) tasks, including capturing, DCI mastering and the ability to edit uncompressed 4K data.
When previewed to the public at this year's NAB, ADS' Technical Operations Manager Tom Sehenuk knew that the system was a perfect fit for their recently-opened Digital Operations Centre, as it had the ability to handle the sophisticated encoding and transcoding specifications for a major client.
Sehenuk said: "We've used DVS' systems at ADS for the last five years for services like restoration, editorial and graphics. Incorporating the latest CLIPSTER now allows us to produce JPEG2000 workflows in real-time.
"We're doing encoding for Universal's archive right now, and they specifically requested CLIPSTER because it is the only system certified to handle their JPEG2000 requirements.
"Adding it to our Digital Operations Centre is the 'icing on the cake' allowing ADS to provide an even broader range of mastering and distribution formats in one facility."
In addition, CLIPSTER can support the direct decoding of REDCODE RAW material in the timeline and users can completely integrate RED metadata - with the increasing number of RED camera users needing HD editing services, ADS can now accommodate these clients, instead of sending them to another post house
Sehenuk continued: "We would constantly get calls for RED workflows and now we don't have to turn those clients away.
"Although both generation CLIPSTER systems will expand our current service capacity, we are excited to push into RED, JPEG2000 and DCP."
Jack Fleming, President of ADS, concurred on the company's latest technology acquisition noting: "ADS has always taken great pride in offering significant value to our clients and the latest generation CLIPSTER is a welcome addition to our editorial workflow and technical resource base.
"The new offering will provide new and existing customers with specific DI post production tools optimised to reduce workflow complexity, affording a higher level of creative freedom to produce best-in-class assets."
