Advanced Digital Services has upgraded its digital intermediate capabilities to diversify the post-production services currently offered by the company. The upgrade includes a Clipster from Digital Video Services which will enable the post house to complete a variety of DI tasks including capturing DCI mastering and the ability to edit uncompressed 4K data. We've used DVS' systems at ADS for the last five years for services like restoration editorial and graphics says ADS' technical operations manager Tom Sehenuk. Incorporating the latest Clipster now allows us to produce JPEG2000 workflows in real-time.  We're doing encoding for Universal's archive right now and they specifically requested Clipster because it is the only system certified to handle their JPEG2000 requirements. Adding it to our Digital Operations Center is the 'icing on the cake' allowing ADS to provide an even broader range of mastering and distribution formats in one facility.   We would constantly get calls for Red workflows and now we don't have to turn those clients away. Although both generation Clipster systems will expand our current service capacity we are excited to push into Red JPEG2000 and DCP Sehenuk says.   Jack Fleming president of ADS says ADS has always taken great pride in offering significant value to our clients and the latest generation Clipster is a welcome addition to our editorial workflow and technical resource base.  The new offering will provide new and existing customers with specific DI post production tools optimized to reduce workflow complexity affording a higher level of creative freedom to produce best-in-class assets.
