CLIPSTER®

Mastering Excellence

Mit unserer Mastering Station können Sie alle DI-Schritte an einem System vollziehen, die andernfalls auf mehrere Produkte verteilt wären. Aus diesem Grund bezeichnen viele Anwender CLIPSTER® als „heart of your DI“. An dieser Workstation editieren Sie Filme online, wandeln diese in verschiedene Ausgabe-Formate, führen Farbkorrekturen durch und nehmen sogar Film-Restaurierungen vor. Dabei arbeitet CLIPSTER® in allen Auflösungen, sei es SD, HD, 2K oder 4K. In Ihrem Workflow entstehen selbst bei aufwändigen Effekten keinerlei Zeitverluste, da die DI-Workstation einen Großteil der Features in Echtzeit absolviert.
