BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- My Eye Media has further increased its QC capacity for mastering file formats with the addition of another R&S® CLIPSTER mastering station to its arsenal of high-end digital processing equipment. The R&S® CLIPSTER will be integrated with the company's 16Gbps fiber channel storage infrastructure and is fully loaded to handle the QC of mastering file formats including IMF and DCP.

My Eye Media CEO and founder Michael Kadenacy said the capacity increase is necessary due to growing volume as My Eye Media continues its international expansion.  

"As we continue to grow internationally, we are seeing an increase in the amount of mezzanine file QC work that will be used to service international territories", Kadenacy said. "The addition of another R&S® CLIPSTER will enable us to service this growing workload."

In addition to helping with the QC workload, the R&S® CLIPSTER Gen6 will also be used for transcoding and IMF / DCP packaging.

"The R&S® CLIPSTER is a great tool for us," notes company CTO Steve Waugh. "Its flexibility in the amount of codecs it supports as well as its processing power make it a key component in our production workflows. We're excited about the enhancements to the Gen 6 such as support for 12 bit DPX, extended IMF profiles and the new color management tool".

Over the past 2 years, My Eye Media has committed significant capital investment to production infrastructure upgrades, including a massive storage capacity increase as well as outfitting bays with support for HDR, Dolby Atmos and UHD/4K.

Erik Balladares, Director of Broadcast & Media at Rohde & Schwarz North America: "Watching My Eye Media grow and succeed as one of the industry's premiere QC providers has been very gratifying.
