Telestream Intros Vantage Transcoding, Workflow Products
Telestream (Booth SL2605) is showcasing new products and capabilities for its Vantage video-transcoding and workflow-orchestration products. The growing family of GPU-accelerated products features a new transcoder for IPTV and cable VOD workflows, new formats including HEVC, new integrations for QC, high-speed delivery and watermarking, and the ability to run all Vantage capabilities in the cloud, providing a tool for automated media workflows.
The Vantage Transcode IPTV VOD addresses the specific challenges of IPTV and cable-transport-stream transcoding. With integrated Manzanita multiplexing and GPU-accelerated video compression, this product offers high quality at low bitrates for IPTV distribution, providing sophisticated control over transport-stream video, audio, and metadata. The transcoder expands Telestream’s family of GPU-accelerated transcoding products, which include general-purpose Web, edit, and mobile transcoders, plus specialized transcoders for broadcast, cable, IPTV, and multiscreen distribution.
New formats for Vantage transcoding products include HEVC H.265, updates to x264 H.264, AMWA AS-02 and AS-11, and DPP AS-11 MXF files. New capabilities allow Telestream to offer GPU-accelerated compression.
The company is also demonstrating new system integrations with Aspera faspex, Cinnafilm Tachyon, Digimetrics Aurora, Interra Baton, VidChecker, Civolution, and Screen Subtitling. These new integrations join more than a dozen integrations already available in the Vantage Workflow engine, which enables them to be brought together under Vantage management, unifying diverse ecosystems and enabling intelligent workflow orchestration.
