Rohde & Schwarz Team Up With zweiB

News Image
Rohde & Schwarz has teamed up once again with zweiB GmbH at the 35th International Munich Film Festival.

The companies will use the R&S CLIPSTER mastering solution to create and validate digital cinema packages throughout the festival which takes place from 22 June to 1 July.

The majority of films are delivered as digital cinema packages (DCP), but in a large qualitative bandwidth. As a result, R&S CLIPSTER is used to check the delivered files and to record metadata before the festival commences. This process ensures that the correct picture and sound will be transmitted to viewers in the cinema. Another R&S CLIPSTER is used as a backup to bridge bottlenecks and speed up the workflow.

There are also films submitted in other formats, such as ProRes files on hard disks, SSDs and memory sticks or DNxHD files and XDCAM files on various storage media. It is even still possible to submit tapes on HDCAM-SR cassettes. As the solution supports a variety of formats, already digitized films can be quickly converted and processed. R&S CLIPSTER also generates high-quality DCPs. A preview function and DCI validation tools ensures that the user can immediately see the finished DCPs, as well as check quality and conformance with DCI standards. In addition to mastering and quality assurance, the workstation is also used to repair DCPs.

Diana Iljine, Festival Director of FILMFEST MÜNCHEN, said: "zweiB and Rohde & Schwarz are strong partners for us. Thanks to their know-how and experience, we master the technical challenges of digital cinema so that the FILMFEST MÜNCHEN is also technologically up to date."

Tammo Buhren, CEO, zweiB, commented: "R&S CLIPSTER features considerable flexibility and openness and integrates perfectly into numerous workflows. The workstation is always up to date with the latest standards. We use it in the run-up to the festival in order to deliver flawless and timely DCP mastering."

André Vent, Sales Manager, Rohde & Schwarz, added: "zweiB has been using our products successfully for years to implement impressive projects. That's why we're especially pleased to work with them as partners of the Munich film festival."
