Snell & Wilcox introduce Helios software conversion platform

Snell & Wilcox has introduced Helios, a software-based conversion platform that uses the company’s video processing technology to deliver big-screen video quality on any viewing platform, including mobile video, VOD, IPTV, iPods and broadcast television.

Eliminating the boundaries between video formats, global standards and new media display devices, Helios makes it possible for content owners and broadcasters to master once and distribute anywhere.

Helios brings Snell & Wilcox' conversion, compression and signal processing expertise to the file-based domain. Combining the company's Ph.C motion estimation and FormatFusion technologies, Helios encompasses a complete automated solution that can convert under user control video, audio and metadata to any required format in a single “anytime” pass.

"Anytime" means Helios' intelligent job manager dynamically scales processing throughput by applying the appropriate amount of CPU power required for an individual task.
