Detroit Public Television converts files with Rhozet
To help handle the multiple video formats it uses in daily production, Detroit Public Television (DPTV) has purchased a Carbon Coder video transcoding system from Rhozet. The Rhozet technology provides a fast and cost-effective solution to automatically convert files between post-production and an on-air server
DPTV is using Carbon Coder to automatically convert its edited and ingested video files for on-air playout through an Omneon server. The production staff will also use it for Web streaming and VOD projects, and for PAL/NTSC conversions.
Rhozet Carbon Coder is a universal transcoding application that facilitates the transfer of media between acquisition, editing, playout, archive, Web and mobile applications. Carbon Coder can run as a stand-alone application or as part of a multinode, fully automated rendering farm.
DPTV is the only public TV station in the Detroit market and is regularly watched in some 1 million southeast Michigan households each week. Additionally, DPTV is available to 2.4 million homes throughout Canada via the Cancom satellite-to-cable network.
