Omneon to unveil ProXchange version 1.1
At NAB2008, Omneon Video Networks will roll out ProXchange v.1.1, a high-performance transcoding system designed for high-volume, multiformat media environments.
With new support for Windows Media VC-1 and Flash Video, ProXchange is the first media processing application specifically designed to run on the Omneon MediaGrid active storage system. It takes advantage of the combined storage and processing architecture offered by MediaGrid to deliver scalable, efficient grid-based transcoding.
ProXchange performs conversion between a wide variety of video and audio formats, including all formats supported by the Omneon Spectrum media server, as well as conversion to the low-resolution H.264 format, and now with version 1.1, Windows Media VC-1 and Flash video. Conversion and rewrapping between wrapper formats also is supported (QuickTime and MXF), with preservation and accurate placement of all metadata through all conversions.
ProXchange can take MPEG-2 50 Mb/s I-Frame content, automatically create a transmission copy in MPEG Long GOP, and concurrently create an H.264 or Flash video clip for distribution to IPTV or the Web.
