Oriental Post - Leading The Way With DVS Equipment
Oriental Post, the leading post production facility in Thailand, has enhanced its workflow with future-proof DVS technology: the DI workstation CLIPSTER® allows high-speed DCI Mastering and RED® workflows in real-time, while the storage solution SpycerBox improves the facility’s data management.
Located in Bangkok, Oriental Post has chosen high-end products by DVS. Equipped with a CLIPSTER® and a SpycerBox SAN, the post production facility is now able to offer an even broader array of services to its customers. While the SpycerBox SAN enhances the facility’s data management and the connection between various clients, CLIPSTER® serves as the missing link within the workflow thanks to its real-time conforming, real-time processing of RED® files, and faster than-real-time DCI Mastering.
Oriental Post benefits from the DVS solution’s smooth integration into the existing post production infrastructure due to its flexibility as an open system. Moreover, CLIPSTER® and SpycerBox significantly accelerate the facility’s workflow by their powerful performance. As a comprehensive solution, the DI workstation and the storage system meet both feature and structural requirements at Oriental Post.
Due to its unique hardware platform and the specially developed hardware accelerator, CLIPSTER® manages to decode and demosaic RED® RAW files in full quality at 4K 12 bit RGBmode in real-time. RAW data can be directly displayed, edited in the timeline and played out in parallel in 4K. Furthermore, CLIPSTER® now enables the generation of DCI Masters in 3D - the DI workstation merges left eye and right eye image data, creating a stereoscopic video track in the timeline which can be edited as regular video material.
With SpycerBox, high-resolution projects can be transferred quickly and reliably. All workstations can access the SpycerBox not only as a SAN system, but also as a NAS (Network Attached Storage). Oriental Post benefits from a highly powerful storage in a 5 HU chassis that offers direct access from different workstations. The fast data transfer between the single workstations and the SpycerBox results in considerable time savings for editors and colorists.
“With CLIPSTER® and SpycerBox we have invested in superior cutting-edge technology that completes our DI infrastructure and helps us meet our customers’ requirements,” says Bobbie Wong, President at Oriental Post. “We’re very pleased with our choice of DVS technology to tackle the latest demands of DI post production.”
Eric Augereau, Sales Director Region Asia Pacific at DVS: “Oriental Post is Thailand’s No.1 post production facility, not least because they were the first ones in Asia to introduce DI workflows. With DVS’s tailor-made systems, Oriental Post has chosen future-proof solutions that will assist them to continue leading the way in the post production industry.”
