Video is being produced and consumed in more ways and on more devices than ever. Motion pictures are shot on video and distributed on standardand high-definition DVDs and displayed theatrically using the latest digital ideo projectors. Promotional videos are screened in taxicabs, on point-of-purchase displays and on gigantic monitors in airports, shopping malls nd sports arenas. Video has become part and parcel of internal and external corporate communication. Personalized weather reports, sports ews and movie trailers play on cell phones and other mobile devices. Home videos of cats flushing toilets attract millions of online viewers on ideo sharing sites… Video content permeates the media landscape in endless ways.
As video content becomes more and more pervasive, content creators and distributors face a dizzying array of options when deciding which video formats best suit their internal production, post-production and archival needs. And the list of competing, incompatible formats for broadcast playout and delivery online, on DVD and on mobile devices is just as daunting. Because there is no single format that can be all things to all people, transcoding technology is fast becoming the linchpin in enterprise and broadcast content delivery pipelines.
Transcoding is the process of translating or converting one format to another. Transcoding facilitates moving media across production, post-production, archival and delivery ecosystems.
For professional, enterprise and broadcast facilities that require seamless universal media transcoding, E-SPIN represented Rhozet(TM) Carbon Coder and Carbon Server provide a powerful, flexible, scalable solution. High-volume, complex workflows can be handled with surprising simplicity via robust automation features that can be customized via the Rhozet XML-based API. Carbon Coder and Carbon Server offer comprehensive format support for moving media across production, post-production, archival and delivery systems smoothly, efficiently and in the most cost-effective manner possible.
Leveraging secure streaming and progressive download delivery formats and platforms for video on-demand applications present still other challenges for enterprises and facilities of all sizes with high-volume demands: compositing logos and watermarks that are scaled to match a variety of screen sizes and aspect ratios; inserting ads that match program content size, resolution and aspect ratio; tracking rights and permissions; and Closed Captioning are just some of the tasks that come to mind.
E-SPIN’s represented Rhozet Universal Media Transcoding Solutions
Rhozet(TM) Carbon Coder is a powerful universal transcoding application with support for virtually all major input and output formats. Carbon Coder can run as a standalone desktop application for moderate transcoding needs. Its flexible, scalable architecture allows Carbon Coder in conjunction with Carbon Server to form a multi-nodal, distributed network transcoding farm to handle the most demanding, high-volume transcoding workflows. Carbon Coder runs under Windows XP and leverages the latest high-speed, multithreaded, multi-core CPU technologies. Carbon Coder can be operated from its own user interface, via the customizable XML-based API included with the product, or remotely from the web-based interface in Carbon Server. The same API controls both Carbon Coder and Carbon Server, so you can develop on a single copy of Carbon Coder and scale your transcoding farm with ease by uploading the XML-based customization to an unlimited number of Carbon Coder nodes to accommodate increasing workloads.
Carbon Server supports an unlimited number of Carbon Coder engines with load balancing. A base system is a 5-node rendering farm consisting of a single node of Carbon Server and four Carbon Coder nodes. Rendering farms can be configured so that one or more Carbon Servers controls them. Distributed enterprise transcoding with Carbon Server provides maximum flexibility, future-proofing and cross-vendor interoperability for a broad range of business environments, from boutique post-houses to enterprise-scale organizations.
Comprehensive Format Support
Among the formats supported by Rhozet technology are acquisition formats ranging from SD to DV25 and DV50, HDV to HD, DVCPRO and DVCPRO 100 to Sony XDCAM; MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 SD and HD transport streams in H.262 and AVC/H.264 codecs for broadcasting; editing and archival formats such as ASF, Canopus DV and HQ, MXF (including QuantelsQ), GXF, LXF and QuickTime; Web and mobile formats including Flash, WMV, RealVideo, MPEG-4, 3GPP; and DVD formats including MPEG-2,MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, VOB and VC-1.
