Inlet Technologies has announced two major initiatives at the NAB Show. Neil Selvin, COO, and Andy Beach, director of product management, first discussed the debut of Armanda, which is an approach to encoding workflow management. The workflow is designed to enhance the hands-off automation that is required to support high-volume operations. An easy-to-use interface and documented APIs will allow organizations to easily tie their controls into existing operations. Armanda provides for pre-encoding, which includes capture and analysis, file verification and metadata extraction; encoding, which includes template creation and management, distributed encoding, job scheduling and priority, and load balancing and node management; and post-encoding, which includes quality control, content encryption and document records, and packaging and publishing.

The Spinnaker 4000 introduces ASI and IP input into the Spinnaker product line, while the Spinnaker 7000 supports high-definition. Inlet also has introduced a third format to the Spinnaker family -- H.264. The inclusion of this codec in its live encoding product provides content creators with more options for how they deliver streaming media.
