Crispin has announced a partnership with Rhozet to create a transcoding server for the broadcast market. The solution offers fast transcoding of all broadcast, Web and mobile formats including MXF, GXF, LXF, Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM, H.264, etc. The transcoding server handles automatic transcoding between formats for editing, distribution and archival purposes. Additionally, the transcoding server supports playout devices from companies such as Grass Valley, Leitch, Quantel, Omneon and Avid.
The transcoding server can be used as a standalone device, or multiple servers can be configured in a transcoding farm for high-volume applications. The server uses a multicore CPU configuration to maximize performance, splitting transcoding jobs across multiple CPU cores for maximum throughput.
