Inlet Unveils Automated Transcoding and Encoding Workflow Management Solution
Thursday, May 01, 2008
Inlet Technologies has introduced Armada, a never-before-seen approach to encoding workflow management. Replacing numerous manual steps with automation, Inlet’s Armada dramatically accelerates the traditional encoding workflow without compromising control or quality. Unveiled in April at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 2008 trade show, Armada was the only encoding solution selected by Digital Content Producer for their NAB 2008 PickHit Award.
Organizations creating large video-on-demand libraries, delivering video download-to-rent /own services, and/or repurposing content for distribution to new screens will benefit from Armada’s multi-format, high-output architecture. Designed with the flexibility to integrate with diverse user environments, Armada can manage entire production workflows or plug into users’ existing facilities and asset management tools.
Armada will dramatically enhance the hands-off automation that is required to support high volume operations. A clean, easy-to-use interface and documented APIs will allow organizations to easily tie their controls directly into existing operations. From pre-analysis through file encryption, packaging and publishing, Inlet’s new system will meet the needs of anyone in the business of high-volume media encoding and transcoding, saving them substantial amounts of time and money.
