Telestream to Launch Workflow Automation System for Graphics

At NAB2006, Telestream will introduce its newest automation software GraphicsFactory, which automates graphics assembly in file-based workflows.

A "build once, apply to many" model offers layered graphics templates that can include text, images and drop shadows, along with fade-ins/fade-outs and QuickTime movies that start and stop on a timeline. And since GraphicsFactory is built on top of Telestream's transcode engine, the output can be flipped into virtually any file format to meet a range of distribution needs, according to the company.

"We're excited to extend our current successes to this new workflow," said David Heppe, Telestream president and COO. "Our flagship FlipFactory products are at the heart of broadcast facilities worldwide enabling seamless file exchange, repurposing and automating ingest-to-playout in news and commercial workflows. GraphicsFactory now enables the same productivity and operational efficiency gains for a greater number of users."

GraphicsFactory is offered as a standalone product providing automated graphics assembly, transcoding and delivery, or as an upgrade to existing FlipFactory systems. GraphicsFactory is a scalable software application that runs on a standard Windows 2003 or XP Pro server. It is slated for release in June.

Telestream will be in Booth SL2781.
