Telestream FlipFactory speeds HD encoding
Telestream has released version 6.1 software for its FlipFactory transcoding product line. Significant codec optimization in FlipFactory now makes it possible for users to achieve HD encoding speeds that were previously only attainable using multiple servers. In addition, FlipFactory 6.1 adds support for VANC metadata associated with HD files.
The FactoryArray option extends the power of FlipFactory from a single server to an array of servers working together to process jobs in the most efficient and secure manner possible. Version 6.1 adds intelligent job routing and queuing to FactoryArray.
FlipScan, a FlipFactory option that automatically scans and analyzes uploaded source video, audio and metadata, including user-generated content, also is now available.
FlipFactory TrafficManager adds monitoring of On The Spot Media's EZSpot delivery software in version 6.1. Support for this new catch server enables broadcasters to automatically monitor and ingest content directly into FlipFactory from On The Spot Media servers.
