Mezzanine Workflow with CLIPSTER®

Today, there is a need to generate multimedia deliverables for devices like IPTV, DVD, Blu-ray, mobile phones, multimedia players, content services, web applications and gaming consoles in different versions and languages. CLIPSTER® supports mezzanine files like IMF (Interoperable Master Format*) or AS-02 and enables versioning and inventory management of content for use in multi-version, multi-lingual, and multi-delivery media environments. Utilize CLIPSTER® to create mezzanine formats like IMF or AS-02 digital masters with video, audio, subtitle, and closed caption tracks for file-based libraries.

Completely tapeless

Switch from tape-based workflows to a digital file-based workflow with CLIPSTER®. Using SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), automate your CLIPSTER® to create your mezzanine files or output deliverables. Our specially designed wizard guides you through every step of the mezzanine workflow, simplifying the entire process.
