R&S CLIPSTER Mastering Solution Excels in UHD and HDR

The latest 6.2 version of CLIPSTER from Rohde & Schwarz offers even higher performance with UHD HDR mastering and 32-bit floating point processing. R&S CLIPSTER 6.2 is versatile in post production and supports the most diverse workflows.

The Rohde & Schwarz CLIPSTER adds two new features to add even more capabilities for the mastering and deliverables solution. The floating point processing option and the HDR workflow option make it possible to convert between different HDR container formats at the highest fidelity. The CLIPSTER 6.2 release makes it possible to generate 4k/UHD high dynamic range (HDR) masters including mapping of the extended luminance range into ST2086 (PQ), directly from an uncompressed linear light digital source. R&S CLIPSTER 6.2 also supports real time conversion from PQ to HLG for HDR sequences.

The accelerated hardware allows realtime processing of videos up to 4k120P. The new version’s optimized architecture makes it possible to use new codecs and formats, including Dolby Vision Cinema, OpenEXR 4k60p, QuickTime HDR and Avid DNxHR, while reading and writing HDR metadata.

Studios, film and television producers and television broadcasters benefit from the option of finishing and mastering premium content in 4k/UHD and HDR. R&S CLIPSTER 6.2 allows QC playback via SDI, DisplayPort and HDMI, so that the creative intent is retained on every display, every TV screen and every cinema screen.

R&S CLIPSTER 6.2 supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 metadata (PQ, SMPTE 2086) in IMF, allowing content to be delivered for all current HDR consumer standards.
