(Basingstoke, United Kingdom--November 12, 2013) At CCW on booth #1256 AmberFin, a leading developer of file-based media ingest, transcoding and quality control solutions for content owners, broadcasters, sports organizations and post-production houses, today announced a new J2K ingest and transcode solution.

Called AmberFin iCR 400-J2K, the new workstation is designed to help smaller facilities and postproduction houses easily create and review J2K assets. The new solution comes with easy-to-install and configure profiles to generate media against the delivery specification.

"Many media and entertainment organizations have chosen JPEG 2000, or J2K, as a high-end service master or service mezzanine and the facilities who deliver content to them have to work with their strict format requirements. This new affordable and easy to use version of iCR will enable them to ingest and transcode files to J2K, ensuring the highest quality video encoding in a scalable and tightly integrated solution," commented Bruce Devlin, AmberFin's CTO.
