LAS VEGAS—At this year’s NAB Show, Wohler Technologies will showcase version 8.3 of its RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform, with tools to streamline file-based media processing for efficient content delivery across all formats and platforms, including over-the-top and other Internet-delivered services.

The RadiantGrid platform provides consolidated media processing capabilities, such as transcoding, standards conversion, audio, captions and quality control, along with an intelligent content management fabric. This SOA-based platform integrates with editorial, archive, traffic, business processes, and rights management systems.

Version 8.3 enables fully compliant OTT offerings for formats like MPEG-DASH, HLS, and Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and aids broadcasters and other content producers in meeting the array of target bit rates, resolutions, and frame rates for today's content delivery. New features include: anamorphic video handling, 2K/4K Ultra HD support, bit depths of up to 16-bit YUV, and a RadiantGrid Detect and Correct video legalization option, which leverages Wohler's RightHue algorithm to ensure NTSC and PAL color compliance within file-based domains.
