Optibase launches Creator ingest server
Optibase launched its Creator ingest server for post-production, video-on-demand (VOD), playout and archiving applications at NAB2008.
While current content creation practice calls for a dedicated system for each application, Creator allows one ingest platform to address multiple formats.
Designed with an Optibase hardware-based encoding engine, Creator offers a single ingest session for MPEG-2, H.264 and Windows Media SD and HD master files together with low-resolution copy generation. Creator's real-time quality control module enables validation of content during creation and viewing of high-resolution stored files in playback mode.
Creator's compatibility with NLE systems and playout servers ensures it will fit seamlessly into existing workflows. Additionally, Creator offers CableLabs VOD content and metadata compliancy and supports multiplexing formats.
