Harmonic adds distributed transcoding to Rhozet Carbon Coder 3.0

Harmonic introduced Rhozet Carbon Coder 3.0, the latest version of its universal video transcoding solution, at IBC2008.

The new version of Carbon Coder features distributed transcoding across multiple machines, new Adobe Flash and VC-1 format support, server failover for fault-tolerant performance, and an automated quality assurance module to ensure the highest-quality video output.

Carbon Coder’s new multimachine transcoding allows a single transcoding job to be distributed over multiple computers in a transcoding farm. This feature is especially useful for processor-intensive formats such as Flash, VC-1 and MPEG-2. Long transcoding tasks are split into segments that are distributed to multiple machines for processing and then spliced together to create the final output. One use of the feature is accelerating the process of creating high-quality VC-1 content for HD optical discs. Even on a single computer, transcoding tasks are accelerated by running across multiple CPU cores.

In addition to speeding up the transcoding workflow, Rhozet has also implemented fault tolerance and quality assurance features to increase reliability.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
