Ascent Media selects Rhozet for video transcoding

Ascent Media Group has selected Rhozet’s Carbon Coder for media transcoding. At Ascent, Carbon Coder is being used in multinode farm configurations to automate and speed the transcoding process to meet the demands of Ascent’s increasing business, which has grown in the past year from less than 100 media transcodes per month to the current rate of 10,000 transcodes per month.

The Carbon Coder system is a universal transcoding application that facilitates the transfer of media between acquisition, editing, playout, archive, Web, mobile and more. Carbon Coder can run as a standalone application or as part of a multinode, fully automated rendering farm.
