Transcoding and IBC

August 24, 2013 Leave a comment

Attending IBC and looking into transcoding? 

Root6 will be showcasing the latest release of Content Agent at 7.E21.  We’ll have the latest rev in conjunction with IBC.  Card based file workflows and integration into Avid’s MediaComposer, Isis and Interplay workflow is excellent.  Key Code Media has our system connected to Isis, MediaComposer and Interplay. 

Card Based Workflows
ContentAgent now supports P2, XDCAM, XDCAM EX, AVC-HD and Canon XF card structures from broadcast cameras, importing both media and metadata before transcoding or rewrapping in the user’s desired format. We will also be demonstrating automated card based ingest direct into Avid Interplay.

Advanced Frame Rate Conversion
ContentAgent’s Advanced Frame Rate Conversion module replaces expensive legacy baseband workflows with a powerful, resolution independent , file-based tool. Utilising state of the art CPU and GPU  processing, the new tool facilitates not only traditional PAL/NTSC conversions, but expands across all frame rates, deals with field order/progressive frames/cadence issues and scales across all resolutions to 4K. Find out more here.

AMWA AS-11 DPP Compatibility
One of the first products on the market to be fully DPP compliant, ContentAgent will be shown with a fully automated AMWA AS-11 DPP workflow for broadcast file and metadata deliverables, integrated with automated, file based QC.
Hot News – GoPro Automation
With the rising popularity of GoPro cameras in professional production environments, ContentAgent now supports GoPro media, with multi frame rate capability for slo-mo and timecode generation.

JPEG2000 Encoding
New JPEG2000 encoding with MXF OP1a wrapping provides a valuable tool for those in broadcast and archive environments.

New Suite of Colour Mapping Tools
The suite of colour mapping tools now available in ContentAgent enables LUTs to be applied to files in any format – a benefit when moving between different colour spaces. In a RED environment, RED RMD colour grade files may also be applied to RED R3D clips.

Cloud Based Rendering technology presentation
In a private demo area, IBC attendees can get a peek at some of the technology under development which will be available in later software releases.  Here, ContentAgent will be demonstrated in a live Cloud/VM environment showing infinitely scalable cloud-based rendering.
