Telestream Enables Encoding to ProRes on Windows Server Products
Today, Telestream announced that its Vantage, FlipFactory, and Episode Engine transcoding software for Windows-based servers now allow encoding to the Apple ProRes video codec.
“Vantage, with its new 10-bit capabilities, provides full automation of iTunes content preparation workflows by combining content analysis and transcoding with automated decision-making,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. “Episode Engine’s unique high-quality 10-bit 4:2:2:4 craft encoding system is an ideal match for maintaining high-quality video encoding standards. Furthermore, Vantage integrates directly into Agility 2G networks, so that encoding to ProRes is available from all of our enterprise offerings.”
The ability to encode to ProRes allows users to turn acquisition, ingest, or archive content into files for editing in Final Cut Pro. ProRes encoding on a Windows platform also provides a seamless bridge between Mac OS X and Windows environments. In addition, a Windows-based, high-volume workflow solution to create content for iTunes is now possible with Vantage, FlipFactory, and Episode Engine.
Episode Engine’s high-quality, 10-bit 4:2:2:4 processing is coupled with segmented and distributed encoding that fully utilizes all CPU power to meet time-critical needs. Episode Engine is scalable from a single workstation to a multi-node server cluster, allowing users to add transcoding nodes as their business requirements grow. An Episode exclusive, One Click Clustering with integrated file-sharing allows users to pool resources and share encoding tasks across multiple computers in a mixed environment of PC and Mac systems.
