Telestream has expanded its Episode Series of media encoding applications for the Mac to simplify file transfer for Apple professionals. New Avid integration provides automated monitoring and file transferring between Avid workstations, Avid Unity or Avid Isis shared network storage systems and Episode applications. The integration enables Avid users to send jobs directly into an Episode workflow from within the Avid interface. This new capability makes it easy for Avid users to quickly encode high-quality media for distribution to any platform, including Web, mobile, podcast, broadcast and more. Episode can encode in a number of formats including Apple's ProRes format.
Episode Engine also supports direct file exchange with leading broadcast servers. Initial server support includes Harris NEXIO, Omneon Spectrum and Grass Valley K2 servers.
