Brevity Transcoded Graphics for Games
NEW YORK: Brevity provided integrated transcode and transport
support of graphics files to NBC Olympics during its production of the London
2012 Olympic Games.
April, Brevity announced a technology that it said delivers highly accelerated transport
of high-resolution video files to multiple locations while
simultaneously transcoding on the edge as a seamless process. Brevity
said it delivers this capability through a cloud-based enterprise media
management and collaboration solution that utilizes automated project-driven
workflows, metadata, advanced algorithms, virtual storage, and teraflops of
computing power. Brevity said it was tested successfully on uncompressed,
high bit-rate video, 2k and 4k DPX files, as well as compressed HD and SD files.
Since Brevity can provide simultaneous transfer and transcoding of the RLE file
into an Avid DNxHD file (with the Alpha channel retained), NBC Olympics was
able to move a one-minute RLE file to the Avid editing solution in under 30
seconds. In addition, Brevity’s parallel processing capability processes
hundreds of RLE graphics files in an hour. Brevity also recently introduced
encoding of Avid system files directly into EVS Broadcast formats.
