HERRSCHING, Germany -- DVC launches a Digital Media Transcoder that converts, encodes andtranscodes all popular file formats. With the multitude of codecs, image data from almost anybroadcast and production system can be imported into a Storage Area Network (SAN) and stored, forexample, as dpx files.

With the PreView Software Player all files can be played back and viewed “directly from disk”. With theDigital Media Transcoder a SAN solution can be implemented with various ingest, processing andediting functions. Within a 2k DI workflow the ingest can be done with ClipRecorder (also from DVC),the colour correction with DaVinci and the editing with AVID, with all three systems having directaccess to the automatically transcoded files from MediaReactor.

As MediaReactor supports WMT-9 and MPEG Encoding additionally to file transcoding, it is alsoideally applicable as a bridge between postproduction and playout servers.

For eCinema advertising solutions MediaReactor is used as a transcoding and encoding station. Inthis scenario virtually all HD and SD files can be imported, scaled and encoded. For transfer andplayout the transcoding / encoding station provides a DVB compatible MPEG transport stream.

The above examples highlight only a fraction of the numerous application areas of MediaReactor forfilm, post production, broadcast, DVD-creation and eCinema.
