Effective high-volume media transformation pipelines require an automated transcoding solution that can quickly, efficiently and concurrently transcode source content into all required output formats for supporting the vast array of viewing devices (and other applications such as deep archive) and all at the maximum possible visual quality that major media organizations demand to protect their brand image. The solution must also scale seamlessly as content volumes continue to grow, allowing additional transcoding nodes to be added without interruption to existing operations. The transcoding solution must be supported by a high-performance storage platform that is up to the task of handling many concurrent input and output operations from multiple transcoding nodes with varying data profiles—extremely large sizes for individual source files, but each resulting in multiple—even dozens—of concurrent but much smaller outputs.
Watch this 20 minute webcast to learn the significance of trancoding in Media and Entertainment workflows and the important role that high performance storage plays in transforming and distributing high quality content to reach consumers on a constantly growing range of diverse delivery platforms from Blu-ray Discs to iPads, iPhones and Internet-enabled TVs.
