Rohde & Schwarz's R&S CLIPSTER 6.7 mastering and distribution workstation has been accepted into Netflix's Post Technology Alliance program.

The Post Technology Alliance program identifies products that meet Netflix technical and delivery specifications today and will continue to do so in the future. Netflix's post production partners can rely on tools bearing the Post Technology Alliance logo.

R&S CLIPSTER 6.7 is used in the post production and delivery of many Netflix original productions.

Netflix evaluated and tested R&S CLIPSTER version 6.7 before accepting the system into the program. Rohde & Schwarz collaborated with Netflix engineers to ensure the workstation fulfils all of its technical and workflow requirements and is committed to product innovation and customer service support. The IMF creation process is evaluated - from tool development and use in post production to the delivery of content to Netflix. As a participant, Rohde & Schwarz has access to Netflix's evolving roadmap and engineering resources so they can develop tools that have the latest features ready when they are needed. Post production partners can be sure that the tools they use meet Netflix's specifications. Plus, they have access to enhanced documentation, training and support.

"At Netflix, empowering our creative partners is incredibly important, and the Post Technology Alliance program will build a more seamless experience from production through post-production," said Chris Fetner, director of post partnerships & integrations at Netflix. "Products that bear the Post Technology Alliance logo are committed to better interoperability and faster innovation cycles, which will allow artists to focus their energy on what matters most--the storytelling."

The R&S CLIPSTER workstation focuses on mastering and distributing feature films and episodic TV. It provides a foundation for post production vendors to build services upon. R&S CLIPSTER can support a wide array of professional media file formats or baseband SDI up to 4K 120p during various stages of post production with its built-in tools. R&S CLIPSTER can perform conforming, VTR emulation, nonlinear editing, real-time video processing, advanced colour format transformations, and even help operators achieve reliable delivery with output wizards for a myriad of professional formats.

R&S CLIPSTER can generate digital cinema packages, Interoperable Mastering Format (IMF) packages and AS11 and AS02 packages, providing excellent quality, reliability, and performance. In addition to the creation of files, R&S CLIPSTER also provides robust video playback for QC, review, and approval as well as playout to tape via SDI, DisplayPort and HDMI with 16 embedded SDI audio channels or 16 AES/EBU channels.
