Santa Clarita Post House Goes IMF With R&S Clipster

Elite Media Technologies has streamlined workflows and eliminated complexities from the post process since deploying the Clipster as its complete IMF mastering solution.

“It took multiple pieces of gear to do now what we have set up on the Clipster,” says Nick Mairose, president and CEO, Elite Media Technologies. 

Elite has used the solution to convert thousands of hours of marquee series, such as Billions, Dexter and Hawaii Five-0, to IMF for Showtime and CBS.

The R&S appliance is a mastering solution capable of generating IMF packages, digital cinema packages (DCP) and AS11 and AS02 packages. Supporting real-time processing of images up to 4K 120p as well as a wide variety of media file formats, the Clipster provides post houses, with a tool that provides DCI and IMF mastering, color format conversion to SDR and HDR and comprehensive codec support.

“What we allow clients to do with IMF is create the primary element, the CPL [Composition Playlist] and IMP [IMF Master Package], use that as their main master and then make all of these supplemental versions without having to totally duplicate all of that data over, and over and over again,” explains Mairose.
