Features & Benefits: FlipFactory New Media transcoders

Extensive transcoding support

Automatically transcodes from virtually any source format, including broadcast servers and NLEs, to an equally broad range of output formats

Automates content repurposing

Accepts source media and metadata from content providers, transcodes and delivers media and metadata to distribution/aggregator servers

Encodes and delivers faster than real time

Fast, efficient batch encoding and delivery saves you time and money

Folder monitoring simplifies submission of source media

Automatically monitors local, network, ClipMail and FTP video folders for arrival of new media, then automatically submits media to an associated factory. New Media Broadcast adds monitoring for broadcast servers. Save media directly to folders for automatic submission to a factory or simply drag/drop media into a factory.

Best in class Factory automation

Hands-free processing; simply set rules for where to look for source files, what to do with them, and where to deliver them

Consistent, scalable, reliable

Set up factories once for consistent, high-quality output results every time; scale across multiple servers; add 24/7 reliability for critical workflows

Integrates with asset management systems

Automates ingest and transcoding for leading asset management systems

Clip trimming

Trim media files of unwanted bumpers and trailers - simple user interface allows for frame accurate trimming of all input formats

Transcode while capturing

Speeds throughput by allowing transcoding to begin while a file is being received from Pipeline.

Video & audio preprocessing support

Media processing enhanced with: mask filter for automatic conversion to 16:9, 14:9 or custom masked frames, a frame mode filter for controlling input video field/frame detection, audio level analysis with waveform generator, inverse telecine, automatic software updater, ability to re-submit jobs making restarts easy, audio/video fade in/out, hue rotation, saturation, sharpen, blur and RGB color rescale; audio channel mixing of up to 32 audio channels.

Overlays can be added anywhere in the picture

Embed a overlay such as a visible watermark into your video to protect your assets. Supports many image file formats including PNG, BMP, JPEG, GIF, LBM, PCX, PNG, PPM, TARGA, TIFF, and WBMP
