AmberFin first to launch DPP product

AmberFin has introduced of group of new file-based media ingest and transcode products that support the Digital Production Partnership (DPP) initiative. AmberFin is the first vendor to introduce a DPP specific media file transcoder and ingest workstation. New products iCR-100-DPP (transcoder) and iCR-300-DPP (media ingest workstation) are available in the UK through AmberFin’s channel partner ATG Broadcast. The iCR-300-DPP media ingest workstation and iCR-100-DPP transcoder are both designed specifically to create high-quality MXF-wrapped AVC-Intra or D10 assets compliant with the AMWA AS-11 specification and DPP guidelines from tape or line sources. Both systems are available as standalone workstations or scalable enterprise solutions. The workstations offer clearly defined, documented and extensible APIs. They benefit from AmberFin’s Unified QC (UQC) approach, providing automated and manual quality control operation. “AmberFin has been a strong supporter of the DPP initiative because it promises Open Standards interoperability and this dovetails so neatly with our strategic development goals,” explained Bruce Devlin, chief technology officer at AmberFin. “DPP has been successful in establishing a road map in digital production in the UK and these new DPP compliant AmberFin products will, for the first time, provide broadcasters and content owners with efficient, targeted and cost-effective production tools.”
