Booth SL4525 — Telestream is demoing new functionality in its Vantage media processing platform. This enterprise-class transcoding and workflow automation software allows users to ingest, edit, transform, package, monetize and distribute media. Processes can now start generating output before file ingest is completed, and actions that previously processed files sequentially will execute in parallel.
For multiscreen OTT workflows, Vantage Transcode features a new method of intelligently constructing adaptive-bitrate (ABR) packages that reduces delivery bandwidth needs by 25–40 percent within multiscreen distribution applications.
Telestream has also added integrated closed-captioning technology into the Vantage workflow. The new subtitle and captioning service integrates seamlessly into Vantage, providing an interface to read, write and adjust subtitle and caption data. It lets users automatically retime captions when performing frame-rate conversions or edits via Post Producer.
