Telestream Announces FlipFactory 7.0
October 22, 2009
Telestream has released version 7.0 of its server software, FlipFactory. FlipFactory is a workflow automation system that offers video and audio file format support for transcoding and integration with third-party systems for file discovery and transfer.
New features include faster single-server transcoding, YouTube fingerprinting, Dolby E support for broadcast and editing workflows, Avid send-to-playback support, plus more file format and wrapper support.
FlipFactory automatically decodes Dolby E audio and re-encodes it to an extensive range of audio formats and wrappers for distribution to multiple platforms. YouTube fingerprinting allows content owners to easily identify and track their video content without extra steps, costs, or processes. A new ITU-BS1770 loudness detection option allows broadcasters to detect and correct audio loudness for up to six channels of audio as part of any FlipFactory workflow. Additional format and third-party support include XDCAM HD 50 encoding, XDCAM EX decoding, MXF decoding of Omneon DNxHD files, HD VANC preservation and insertion, and more.
Support for Avid workflows includes Avid send to playback straight from the Avid timeline. This means faster throughput from Avid systems to on-air systems and servers.
