Berlinale 2013 – Technical Report

nanocosmos software was again powering the E-Cinema system at Berlinale International Film Festival 2013 and the European Film Market with their improved video coding and playout software.

Based on an upgrade to the Berlinale 2011 and 2012 setup, the ingest and playout software now not only includes high resolution and high bitrate MXF based E-Cinema material, but also H.264 stream based video files for previewing/screening the film material from the Berlinale archive servers. Additional verification tools have been implemented for quality checking video assets including DCP containers.

The E-Cinema ingest and playout applications have been developed by using the nanocosmos Broadcast SDKs for MXF and H.264 encoding and playout.

Again, more than 500 movies have been encoded and encrypted with nanocosmos software, used in playout systems in more than 50 cinemas in Berlin.
