: RadiantGrid TrueGrid™ Supports ProRes CodecTrueGrid Now Offers Faster Than Real-time TranscodingLast Updated: April 7, 2011 8:47 pm GMT
(NAB 2011 Booth SU3725--April 7, 2011) RadiantGrid Technologies (NAB Booth SU3725), the developer of leading-edge transcoding, transformation and New Media Automation™ service platforms, today announce that the company’s TrueGrid™ transcoding solution now adds support for the Apple ProRes codec. TrueGrid can now transcode to ProRes faster than real-time rates. This new functionality is free for all existing customers with the recently released RadiantGrid version 6.3.
“With RadiantGrid’s TrueGrid transcoding capabilities, our customers can move their media workflows at faster speeds by simply adding more server capacity,” says Kirk Marple, president and chief software architect, RadiantGrid Technologies. “Customers can now execute fully-automated distribution to a variety of outlets since we offer both batch and grid-based processing.”
A key component of the RadiantGrid Platform is the combination of an underlying content management solution with integrated metadata indexing and quality analysis. RadiantGrid caches ingested source material and its metadata, which eliminates redundant and wasted processing time in content reuse scenarios. RadiantGrid leverages the same source asset without re-ingesting and learning the content again. This means that users can generate ProRes packages instantly for on-air releases and pre-schedule distribution of their ProRes package release to iTunes for a later date and time.
“The RadiantGrid platform eliminates the need to pre-define the expected format of the source content, as often required by other transcoding solutions,” says Hank Frecon, managing director, RadiantGrid Solutions. “Through dynamic analysis, RadiantGrid decides the appropriate preparation process for ingested media and auto-assigns transcoding parameters to provide the best quality output for our customers.”
RadiantGrid will be announcing more product features at NAB 2011, including solutions for integrated automation of corrective video and audio media processing.
