Today's lucrative on-demand, multiscreen distribution opportunities; dynamic media environments; and advanced post production workflows require media organizations to process and manage a rapidly expanding volume of content and an ever-increasing array of media file formats and specifications. Production of file-based media and transcoding between differing file formats are critical steps in almost every video workflow, whether exchanging files between disparate acquisition, post production and delivery systems; standardizing digital media contributions for distribution or archive; or re-purposing content assets for revenue-expanding, multi-platform VOD opportunities. Efficient media file processing workflows must encompass more than just converting between formats -- from image processing and metadata manipulation to packaging, analysis and more.
Our enterprise-class Digital Rapids Transcode Manager software combines outstanding quality, intelligent automation and exceptional workflow agility for high-volume, file-based media processing. Transcoding huge volumes of clips daily for many of the world's largest media enterprises, Transcode Manager scales seamlessly from small transcoding 'farms' to global operations. For creating file-based deliverables from live or tape-based sources or for lower-volume transcoding applications, our versatile StreamZ and StreamZHD encoders are ideal gateways into the file-based media domain.
