Omneon updates ProXchange with Flash video
Omneon ProXchange is a high-performance transcoding system designed for high-volume, multiformat media environments. It is the first media processing application specifically designed to run on the Omneon MediaGrid active storage system. ProXchange performs conversion between a wide variety of video and audio formats, including all formats supported by the Omneon Spectrum media server, as well as conversion to the low-resolution H.264 format, and now with version 1.1, Windows Media VC-1 and Flash video. Conversion and rewrapping between wrapper formats also is supported (QuickTime and MXF) with preservation and accurate placement of all metadata through all conversions.
Omneon MediaGrid adds new features with version 2.1 including the ability to create storage reservations, so individual users are guaranteed a minimum amount of storage, tail-mode FTP to support active workflows in conjunction with third-party servers and more robust system monitoring and reporting.
