Dolby Certifies Clipster for Atmos
June 19, 2014
HANOVER, GERMANY – Rohde
& Schwarz DVS released a beta version of Clipster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The official
certification of Clipster now enables post production studios to create Dolby
Atmos DCPs, fitting into existing workflows.
Dolby Atmos allows sound experts to place sound
anywhere in the movie theater with
object-based audio. Instead of thinking about speakers or channels, sound
mixers tag each sound “object” with precise directions as
to where in the room it should appear or move. It takes into account each
venue’s configuration, ensuring a consistent, quality audio experience
across all theatres, regardless of size and shape. Thanks to an intelligent
decoder box, sound objects are rendered and distributed to the required number
With Clipster, Rohde & Schwarz DVS has pioneered in processing 4K data
in real time since 2007, and is also leading in the area of frame rates. With
its acclaimed and highly regarded digital cinema capabilities, Clipster can
generate all compliant DCPs in real time, in 2D, 3D, 4K or HFR. By using the Rohde & Schwarz DVS JPEG2000
encoding hardware, 96 frames can be converted per second, up to four times faster than real time (3D HFR
in real time). The respective Dolby
Atmos mixes can be integrated in the DCI mastering process for the DCP with Clipster.
