Telestream Releases New FlipFactory Version
Nevada City, Calif.-based Telestream has released Version 5.0 software for its flagship FlipFactory product line, which automatically converts and transfers digital media files between professional formats and systems. The release adds two new products, FlipFactory Mobile and FactoryArray, and key features include support for Autodesk's Media and Entertainment systems.

FlipFactory Mobile automates high-volume media encoding for evolving mobile distribution outlets. Support for commonly used mobile and web video and audio formats includes H.264, iPod, QuickTime 7, Windows Media VC-1, 3GPP, Real, MP3 and AAC. FactoryArray ensures continuous, 24/7 job processing, and extends the power of any FlipFactory product from a single server to an array of servers working together to process jobs in an efficient and secure manner. Key components include intelligent load-balancing and job distribution, failover protection, database mirroring, and automatic recovery mechanisms.

"We're delighted to have Telestream develop on our Wiretap API," said Bill Roberts, director of product management for Autodesk's Media and Entertainment Division. "FlipFactory's new capabilities allow significant workflow advantages to broadcasters and post-production facilities by allowing Autodesk's systems to integrate directly with broadcast servers and automation systems."

Support is now available for Autodesk's Media and Entertainment Division systems products including Autodesk Stone file system, Discreet Smoke editing/finishing system, as well as Discreet Inferno, Discreet Flame and Discreet Flint visual effects and compositing systems. FlipFactory Version 5.0 is currently shipping and now available through Telestream's worldwide sales distribution network.
