Telestream has launched Post Producer, a post production and delivery engine that automates repetitive production processes which would otherwise tie up editors and nonlinear editing workstations.
Based on user templates, Post Producer assembles a segment or spot, compositing video, graphics, titles and captions or subtitles and applying audio processing as required. Alternate versions can be automatically created by substituting the necessary elements. It runs on the latest version of the company's Vantage 6 software.
“One of the major pain points in file-based workflows is the repetitive rendering of different versions of media for today’s multi-language, multi-platform distribution,” said Paul Turner, VP of enterprise product management at Telestream. “Post Producer addresses this issue, offering an automated, efficient, and cost-effective solution for versioning and packaging.”
Telestream also enables direct ingest of DPX sequence files and acquisition formats such as Red RAW, by adding Dolby E encoding, and 24 to 25 frames per second audio conversion. The new Post Producer and these new features will be available in Vantage 6. In addition, Vantage 6 will offer new analysis and QC capabilities and further integration with third-party products.
Also on display at IBC, Vantage is a video processing platform for transcoding and file-based workflow automation products. It supports single-server installations for automated transcoding, to large, multi-server media processing systems that automatically produce and assemble millions of finished media packages. Vantage is aimed at making content production, multi-screen delivery, and device interoperability a hands-off process by bringing transcoding, media capture, metadata processing, analysis, and content assembly into a unified system.
