Digital Rapids Ships New Transcode Software Enhancements
Digital Rapids has begun shipping the latest enhancements to its Transcode Manager distributed media transcoding software. The complete line of Digital Rapids products will be showcased at IBC2007 at stand number 7.641.

New features of Transcode Manager FE (Facility Edition) include server-level failover, clip manipulation and support for third-party databases such as Oracle 10g, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and PostgreSQL. Transcode Manager LE offers the same performance, load balancing intelligence and ease of use in a lower-cost configuration tailored for customers without enterprise-level requirements.

“Transcode Manager now forms the backbone of our media transcoding workflows,” said Kevin Froning, director of engineering at compression services facility Global Digital Media Xchange, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. “The productivity, quality, output precision and enterprise-class integration capabilities of Transcode Manager provide extensive benefits as the demands on our transcoding services grow exponentially.”

A Transcode Manager server works in conjunction with multiple Transcode Engines, intelligently assigning jobs for optimal throughput, the company said. Transcode Manager LE supports up to 10 Transcode Engines, while Transcode Manager FE is fully scalable to an unlimited number.
