Telestream adds Avid support to Apple digital media workflows

Telestream has expanded its Episode Series of media encoding applications for the Mac to simplify a greater number of specific digital media workflows for Apple users.

Episode Engine, the company’s server encoding solution, now provides faster-than-real-time HD encoding directly to leading broadcast servers. Avid integration automates file transfer between Avid editorial environments and Episode, enabling optimized encoding for multiple new media distribution outlets. A new image sequence importer imports large film sequence files into Episode for encoding to nearly any format for editing, review and approval or distribution.

Episode Engine enables direct file exchange with leading broadcast servers, including Harris NEXIO, Omneon Spectrum and Grass Valley K2 servers.

Avid integration provides automated monitoring and file transfer between Avid workstations, Avid Unity or Avid Isis shared network storage systems and Episode applications. The integration lets Avid users send jobs directly into an Episode workflow from within the Avid interface.
