Wohler Products at SMPTE 2012:
RadiantGrid(TM)
The Wohler RadiantGrid(TM) New Media Automation Platform offers a more efficient solution for file-based creation, standards conversion, QC, and distribution of media, while augmenting and integrating with trafficking, rights management, linear automation, and business process management systems. At the heart of the platform is RadiantGrid's TrueGrid(TM) enhanced, robust media-transformation and parallel-processing engine, coupled with an underlying content management fabric that leverages intelligent media-processing functions to generate outstanding results at unrivaled speeds. Powered by this engine, RadiantGrid now manages everything from faster-than-real-time transcoding and standards conversion, to more complex processing such as mixed cadence correction, video optimization, audio loudness conformance, and more.
