Format conversion

Episode helps provide media in any format needed, whether for mobile phones, iDevices, web, or broadcast. Use a standard template if you are new to encoding, or tailor your settings specifically for your needs with Episode fine-tuning controls.

Standards conversion

Episode includes a world-class standards-conversion/up-conversion algorithm that provides quality comparable to expensive high-end hardware solutions. Simply use one of the settings templates included in Episode for your high-quality standard conversion needs, for a fraction of the cost of a hardware solution.

Bridge systems

Episode lets you transfer and manage media between all your different systems in your workflow. Take content from one edit system to another, transfer between various formats in your production environment, and create proxy copies for internal handling.
